Each Monday, I join with several fellow bloggers to host a photo challenge. We take turns choosing the photo we like best. I get to choose this week, when the challenge is "ANIMAL". I promise not to choose my own, but I do want to tell you about the animal I'm featuring in my own shots this week.
We had to put our 12-year-old cat to sleep a few weeks ago. Our 5-year-old cat missed his companion, and so I called a local vet and asked if they knew of a kitten - not "too young" - who was litter trained and who would adapt to a home with another established cat. They happened to have a 5-month-old kitten there who'd been born to a "semi-feral" mother, then brought to the vets in hopes of finding a home. For 4 months, he'd been in a cage awaiting an "adoptive family".
