My mother sent me this email a few hours ago:I was driving down the road and someone in a truck ahead of me threw a kitten out the window !!
I thought it was a piece of trash- then I saw the tail !
She wasn't moving- I got her out off the road- her eyes and nose were glued shut with mucus and she had a hole in her neck. I raced her to the vet- even the vet was crying !
But she's going to be ok...I have named her Leeloo. She is only about 4 weeks old and very teeny and thin.
Her collar bone is broken and she has a respiratory infection but she'll be fine.
I am picking her up at the vet's tomorrow and will have to feed her with a syringe, as she is too weak to eat.
I was nearly in tears while reading it. Animal abuse is the worst thing in the world to me, and to do that to a kitten... Thank god my mother is the kind of woman she is, who has rescued animals all her life.
I desperately want to do something to help her take care of little Leeloo, but I'm too far away. My mother is dirt poor and I'm sure she can't even afford the initial trip to the vet she took today. I'm worried.
And so, I'm asking for help. Anything you find in your heart to give would be incredibly appreciated. I'm starting out the fund with $50, but you can donate any amount. All will be given to my mother.
I don't have any pictures of the kitten yet, but I'm planning on asking when I check on her condition tomorrow. Final Donation Total: $600.00!
Donations closed - thank you so much, everyone!
