Here’s an adorable stray (most likely abandoned) kitten we found just yesterday and took to the vet to get her shots and check-up. Unofficial name: “Scruffles” I Could Pee on This and Other Poems by Cats Available from these very fine retailers:
I bet someone abandoned her because of the eye. Seriously. I volunteer at a shelter and many people will dump animals when something goes wrong with them. Fortunately, there are a lot of people who go out of their way to adopt animals with problems, so it partially balances out.
Oh, also good on you for taking in a black cat. Black cats and dogs get adopted at lower rates than other animals of the same size, breed, health, and age. No one’s sure if it’s an aesthetic thing or superstition or what, but it holds true all across English-speaking North America.
