This is the difference love can make in just 24 hours in the life of a stray cat. A tiny dirty stray kitten was running around at an apartment building awhile back.
“There are a lot of self-reliant ferals around our apartment, but this little thing was dirty & covered in burrs. We gave him some chicken but couldn’t catch him. I think he may have wandered over from the outdoor cat hoarder colony down the street,” violetohara wrote at tumblr.
A neighbor finally managed to catch the kitten.
“I put him on this cozy towel and started combing and picking the burrs and sticks out of his fur. He calmed down immediately and has been chilling here with me in the kitchen ever since,” she added.
That’s when the little kitten stole her heart altogether.
They rushed the kitten to the vet and got him cleaned up and checked out.
“I hope he isn’t too sick; I think he might have a cold,” she wrote before the vet appointment.
The next day, she posted in update on the kitten on her blog.
“What a difference a day makes! Took this little guy to the vet, got the fleas and dirt washed off him, got some antibiotics for a slight cold, but he is otherwise fine.”
What a difference a day makes indeed!
