Stray Kitty

My cousin found this little kitty on the side of the highway by her work. It had been below zero the prior week and was not much warmer the week they found him. Someone had seen a little orange puff rolling down the side of the road and told the girls about it, they immediately put their boots on and went looking for him. They found this little guy and named him Road Rash. He is adorable.

A friend of mine was looking for an orange, long haired kitten so she agreed to take him. He was emaciated and dehydrated, and so lethargic there were a few times I wasn't sure if he would even live. The vet gave him subcutaneous fluids and special food and before long he was an alert, playful kitten. He has been renamed Tigger and has gained almost 2.5 lbs since just before Christmas!
