    Little guy needs to find a good home

    We found this kitten at 9pm on a busy Hwy last night. Did not know what it was and almost hit it with my truck. So I turned around and ran across three lanes of traffic and found this little guy in the road.
    Theirs no houses for a mile on this stretch of road.

    He (if it's a he) is cute as can be.

    Any reason you can't keep him ?. I look at all 4 of my monsters, all between 4 and 10 yrs. old with a memory of how they came into our lives. Makes them even more special, especially when they barf in my shoes at night, or lick the butter on the dining room table.

    That's great! This little kitty has at least 2 humans to care for him now. I like happy endings.

    They were so excited that before they picked up the little guy they went to PetSmart and spent a lot of money on stuff for him. He is going to the Vet. next week to get a check up and any shots he is going to need.
    He is going to have a good home. If he stayed at my house just one more day I would have kept him for myself.
    He was a playful little guy and were ever my wife walked we was running right behind her. I'll see him almost every day now that he lives only 100ft. away.

    20 Ways to Get Good Karma -The Dalai Lama

    1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
    2. When you lose, donít lose the lesson.
    3. Follow the three Rís:
    - Respect for self,
    - Respect for others and
    - Responsibility for all your actions.
    4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
    5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
    6. Donít let a little dispute injure a great relationship.
    7. When you realize youíve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
    8. Spend some time alone every day.
    9. Open your arms to change, but donít let go of your values.
    10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
    11. Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and

    12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.

    I was just at the corner bar for lunch and this lady was talking about a guy that she works with found a little kitten on Friday night. It was the same place that I found one.
    If you don't want to keep them find a good home. Don't dump the little guys in the middle of a busy hi way.
    Whats wrong with some people

    I don't know. Maybe they get a free cat then they don't want to spend the money to spay or neuter it. Do it at age 4 months.

    That's some serious cuteness right there. Glad he/she's got a new home.

    The lady that gave the little guy a new home works the night shift and I see her when I go in to work in the morning. She gave me a run down on how the little kitten is doing and it's eating good and running all over the house. She telling me that her husband is laying on the floor playing with him and wants to build him this.

    Wow, he's looking great!! Thanks for the update, glad it's worked out for your neighbor and the kitty. What did they end up naming him?

    Too bad you couldn't get together with the person who found the other kitty and this one for a reunion meeting!
