Newest Addition

Meet Mila-June, the newest addition to our family. My husband found her June 11th, near the highway on his way home from work. Having a soft spot for kitties, and all animals for that matter, he scooped her up and brought her home. We surely don't need another pet, given that we're about to burst at the seams with six cats already and one stray we feed (shhh....), but we just couldn't turn her away. She was very sick and malnourished. I've never seen such a traumatic wound on any animal in person. Apparently, she had been bitten by some animal on her neck, leaving a nasty puncture wound turned abscess. After advice from our vet, we've been 'doctoring' on her for a few days now, and I'm happy to report that the sore is almost gone! I wouldn't have believed five days ago that she would look so much better already! She is acting like a normal, healthy kitten now - not lethargic anymore. She's hyper and playful with a big appetite. Her new "brothers and sisters" are coming around and getting used to the fact of a new addition too. Having her run up to me, cuddle up on my chest, and instantly start to purr, just warms my heart.

SIX cats. I thought my three was bad enough!
