    I was out riding Sunday and found this little girl kitty on the side of the road. Looking wet, miserable and crawling with ants. I took her home and cleaned her up and she is doing great.



    Weighs about 1 lb 4oz, around 6 weeks old. She is eating a mix of kitty formula and solid food. Knows to use a litterbox already.

    She is very friendly and even gets along with a dog. She is at my folks place in DeLand but can't stay there. I'm trying to find her a home but no luck yet. Next week I'll take her to a shelter if I can't find her a home.

    See if one of your local vets will help find it a home.

    Awwww!! Don't take her to a kill shelter. At least try to find one that will really adopt her out. She's so cute! Is she a lap kitty?

    She likes to sit on my shoulder and comb my beard while I'm reading. Probably likes laps too.

    Took her saturday for shots / deworming. I inquired about shelters and was told they are full right now. :( Lots of people have met her but don't want another cat. I have a couple people who are asking around but no luck yet.

    The lady friend is allergic or I would help. Not much in saying "I can't help" in a fancy way but I subbed the thread and will ask around.

    You're good peeps for giving it a safe home.

    Small update.

    The humane society will take her but prefers to wait until she is 8 weeks or 2lbs so she can be spayed right away. Once that is done she can be adopted out. I'll keep her for another week or so. If I can't find a home by then she'll go there.
