Kitten Rescued on 220 Is a Sad Reminder for Shreveport-Bossier
A few weeks ago I made a U-turn to try and save an orange kitten as I was trying to get to it I saw a car run over it and it shattered me. Maybe it was one of those days but it really did break my heart and I remember crying on the way home thinking next time I’m stopping traffic I don’t care. That orange kitten haunted me, I just couldn't get it out of my head.
Today I saw an orange ball of fluff on the 220 bridge, this time I was able to save an orange kitten with semis and cars zooming past me. I was shaking but this little guy was alive and I couldn't believe it.
He was covered in fleas, filthy, and with eyes so infected they were completely shut I didn’t know if he had a chance at life. I called my dog's vet office begging them to take this little guy in so we could find out if he was going to live or not.
My vet said he's a fighter and we are hoping he beats the infections and can go on and live a healthy life. Unfortunately, my vet said that they are seeing countless puppies and kittens come through because it's "that season". Please spay and neuter your pets.
Animal shelters are euthanizing animals at an alarming rate in the Ark-La-Tex and we can eliminate this issue by making sure we spay and neuter our pets.
