i was at neonjellibean's today.

her roomate adopted a kitten that is horribly malnurished and covered in fleas and its fur is falling out.

i helped her wash it.

when it was wet, it was all bones and its skin was clinging to them. i had to pick it up to put it back on the towel and i could feel every one of its ribs, you can feel the contours of its shoulder blades.

it was so scared and couldn't run or fight back. it would just meow pathetically.

it seriously broke my heart.

oh, and rip rick james. "cocaine's one hell of a drug."

awww =< my little baby merle was like that. He was all frail and small and sick, but he was a cuddle bug from the start, though. He was a bit terrified of his vet experience, but he came out okay.. now he's fat and spoiled. :D

i'm hoping this kitty pulls through. she's so lovable and has beautiful markings.

i can't believe whoever had her let her get like this. :\ i just want to beat them senseless.

yeah, i know the feeling. When I got merle I was at the HS looking for my boyfriend's dog with him and this woman brought in a box of kittens and the mother cat, who'd apparently been breeding like crazy. it was so sad =/ i couldn't leave without taking one with me.

my brother says i should be a vet but there's just no chance in hell because (aside from the science classes, ick) I just wouldn't be able to handle having to give pets back to negligent owners.. or even be able to confront them in the first place. People are jackasses.

people treat pets like they treat children. the trash abuse them, the retarded rich people spoil them.

we had a kitten like that when i was younger. when we got him, he was the runt of the litter and pretty much starved to death because none of the other ktitens would let him get close enough to momma to eat. we took him home and had to weigh him on a postal scale (the ones that register hundredths of ounces) many times a day to verify that he was gaining weight.

he's a big, fat old cat now. he turned out alright.

my mom kept the runt of her cat's litter, and that cat is still incredibly skinny, but in a healthy way.

i'm so scared this kitty isn't gonna make it. :\

:\ it's not even my kitten....

i just can't go over there and see it and not try to help it some myself.

i almost started crying earlier when we were drying it off because i was so scared i would rub too hard and hurt it and hear that pitiful little meow.

Paka was out in an Arizona duststorm the day before we adopted him. He was all dusty brown and really skinny. When we bathed him, the water was dark brown and he just stood there looking at us with his sad little cat eyes.

He's now a well-adjusted fuzzball, aka "King of the House". He is the older brother of a dog, another boy cat and a girl kitten.

Speaking of, our girly cat, who we estimate to be approx. 5 weeks now, was tiny as well. We shucked out the 10$ for special kitten fewd and she has quite the little tummy going on now.

Most vets offer free or low-cost services for people who adopt strays, I'm sure they can help you all out.

Oh, and good for her and her roommate for taking in this poor kitty-cat.
