When he came in to the sanctuary earlier today this little kitten was starving, dehydrated, emaciated and covered in fleas but lucky to be alive. He was found running about in the middle of the road and picked up by a pet samaritans who brought him straight in to us. How did the cars miss him!
Judging by his condition he’s been out for some time, he is seriously underweight, you can feel all his ribs and he has skinny little legs. Even his poor face is pinched. When we offered him some food, he didn’t eat it – he attacked it! We had to ration him so that he didn’t overload, he hasn’t seen food in a long while so it’s small meals and often till he recovers.
We’ve called him PeterPan because he really is a lost little boy. After we’d fed him we de-fleaed and wormed him – I’ve rarely seen a kitten so covered in parasites. PeterPan has a heartrending little meow – he is still distraught but hopefully will settle a bit overnight and feel better tomorrow. How long has he been out there trying to survive? He’s a little sweetie.
The food was good …..
