The Cruelty Of Man

Today I went to church for our monthly FaithWorks meeting. We make baby quilts for a pregnancy advocacy center. After that, I stopped by the local farmer's market. On my way home, just a couple of miles from my house and out on the main highway that I turn off of, I witnessed a cruel event.

A truck was barreling down the highway and all of a sudden, a kitten came flying out the window. It was a good thing there wasn't a car behind that truck because if there had been, the kitten would have been killed. I stopped as quickly and as safely as I could, turned around, and went back.

The kitten was huddled in the grasses and as soon as I went up and called to him, he came right over to me. I picked him up and put him in the passenger seat. He settled down without a sound and just stayed there, lying down with his head upright. His eyes looked clear and he didn't seem to be disoriented. I brought him home, though I halfway cried on my way home. Some people are just so CRUEL.

The kitten is hurt, though it doesn't look like it's too bad. Nothing is broken or sprained because he's walking around and has even jumped over a couple of things. His rump has been scraped. When he landed, it wasn't on his feet but on his side - the side where the injury is. There's also a minor scrap on his jaw.

I called a friend whose wife is a vet. She said I could put neosporin (just a little bit) on the wound. I wiped it off with a wash cloth as best I could before doing so. This kitten is so sweet! Didn't attempt to scratch or bite while tending the wound, very quiet (except when other cats approach, then he growls, though we didn't let them get too close and he's now quarantined). He's willing to just sit in your lap and be petted.

I really want to keep him but we already have five cats and Kurt refuses. I can't blame him really, though it doesn't take away my desire. My friend's wife said she'd help find a home for him.

I just don't know why people do stuff like this, especially to ones as sweet as him!
