Friday was work as usual but as always there was a twist. I went out the back door to check out a noise only to find a small kitten that someone apparently dumped and the children from the feeding program brought her in as well as an older kitten onto the property. By the time I went home, we had to take the smaller one, a precious little female, to be put to sleep. Apparently it got into some sort of concoction that made her quite ill. The other went home with me. It is a shame that this precious gift from God had to die because people weren't able to care for her and dumped her like trash.
