The Amazing Rescue Story Of Giles The Kitten…Here’s hoping all goes well with his eye :)
The first image was about an hour after the girl & imgur.com user, REDbern, found him. As you can see, poor boy had a pretty serious eye infection. Luckily her moms neighbor is experienced in this (considering they have 20 cats, all rescued) so he got the best kind of help.
Gave him a good bath
According to her, “the poor guy was about an inch from getting run over as I waited to grab him safely. If it hadn’t been for the car in front of me swerving around him, I wouldn’t have noticed him because the ground he was on was brown. I’ve also noticed quite a few times, I’ve seen a mother cat abandon the runt as soon as it’s able to live off milk, even though it’s still too small to care for itself. I’m thinking he was the runt and unfortunately this happened to him.”
The only way he can eat is if she mixed up a super mushy Pate` cat food with milk or water. He’s big enough to lap, just not big enough to eat it as is.
Siting next to her 2 year old.
His favorite spot to sleep is in the hole left when she sits indian style. He enjoys sinking down and disappearing.
She is very small compared to her hand.
Day 2, eyes looking a little better after being cleansed pretty well. She decided to name him Giles, after the librarian/Watcher from Buffy because not only is he visually impaired, but he also never stops talking.
Enjoying his favorite thing ever. Chin rubs. Also loves him some belly rubs.
