Meet Trip.
The kids and I went to a thrift sale and they
had free kittens. Chyann noticed that one of the kittens
was limping and asked the lady what was wrong with him.
She said he was born without a left rear foot.
Of course the kids wanted him, but I said no.
We have about seven barn cats and didn't need any more.
We went home and the kids tell their Dad about this cat.
He also said no, we have enough cats.
But wouldn't you know the next day He comes home with this kitten.

He had driven past where we said we'd seen the cat and decided to stop.
That guy is such a softy. He just couldn't not take him.

Trip ended up having an upper respiratory infection (watery, goopy eyes,
sneezing, and some coughing) that didn't clear
up after we had him about a week. We took him to the vet and
they gave him a shot of antibiotics, de-worm medicine and
an oral antibiotic to take twice a day for two weeks.
He is fit as a fiddle now!
Racing through the house (yes, he is a house cat)
and getting into mischief.
It's fun to watch him play, good cheap entertainment!
And missing the back foot does not slow him down at all.

He is a real cutie, I like his color pattern.

I'm sure the kids will remember that act of kindess by their dad. It's the small things we can do for them that turn great in the eyes of our children.
