Friday morning Grenwinae took son to his first court appearance. This is all part of the bullshit that has been happening these last 3 weeks. As part of his scholarship he had to volunteer. When he volunteered they put him in the beverage tent and he was racking up beers which the beverage manager was to distribute. Well, boss didn’t check an ID and my son got ticketed!
A lawyer has been hired and they went last Friday to get the next court date scheduled. It is one reason why he has been full of crabbiness. But hello…! It was not my fault you delayed your volunteer work till the last minute and than got into this fix.
So after some of that brouhaha, Grenwinae and I thought we do a quick run to Lowes and get some lights we needed for the kitchen. The operable words here “quick run.” Well as you can guess…
The skies were still overcast and there was a short break in torrential downpours. As I turned into the Lowes parking lot there are two guys trying to get something out of a tree. At first, I thought it was a baby bird but than realized the sound was a kitten.
The kitten struggled, they dropped it, it ran under some nearby cars. Okay, okay we are taking an orphaned kitten home because I am not going to let it get killed on the most dangerous intersection in Tulsa, Oklahoma (yes it is officially this for the State). I would not have been able to sleep at night knowing that we had let that kitten out there.
Our best guess is mom was moving her kittens in the storm and this one got separated from the group. Mom, being feral, was not going to come out with all these people about even if she was still around. Or she might have been killed herself and couldn’t come back.
It was pretty weak, obviously a feral kitten that is about 4 weeks or younger, covered with fleas. I wondered if it would survive the first day but it picked up with food and has now gained weight and is active.
It WILL NEED A HOME… luckily it has beautiful coloring so once we get it thoroughly de-fleaed and it’s first check up I’m looking for a foster home where it can be around other kittens and learn how to be a cat.
The next day Grenwinae went to OKC to take son to Norman, OK where he will be started OU this summer. Son discovers a trapped bird in the net MIL had spread over her fish pond to prevent cats from eating the fish.
Grenwinae “bird whispers” it and it lies passively while he cuts it free. Then it flew off. An amazing adventure for him.
The kitten though is still here….
