The Triple A Kitten

The Triple A Kitten
As a rescuer your job is never done. You get 2am phone calls. Late nights, and early mornings are a common place. Its truly a 24hour job. With the only compensation being the good feeling that comes with knowing that another animal is safe. The Triple A Kitten in on of those stories. I got an early morning phone call from one of my fellow rescuers that a young kitten had been found behind the AAA office building by a very busy road. Per his description the kitten was friendly, and looking for some help. So as usual I made quick arrangements with a volunteer to go and pick him up. I’m ever grateful for my volunteers, they are my teammates and without my team. none of this would be possible. The volunteer arrived with a dirty , frightened¬† grey and white kitten. We scanned him for a microchip, nothing. He wasn’t fixed and had no collar, although he is very tame, affectionate, and appears healthy. It always makes, you wonder, where these animals come from. It is so obvious someone cared for him, why not even make the effort of at least placing a collar and tag ? His new name is Ralph. He is beautiful, sweet , and extra affectionate. He is often all over us and begging to be petted and held. After he is vaccinated, fixed, and microchipped he will be available for adoption. His life has been forever changed, the lives of outdoor cats are often miserable ones, being struck by vehicles, eaten by wildlife, fighting with other animals. He will never have to endure that now. He will be placed with a loving forever family, and live his days as a pampered house pet.
