Over on the Venting thread, I’ve posted about the neighbors who went on vacay and left their cats. One mama kitty has been coming over to eat. A few days ago, I saw kittens come with her.
I thought they were going back home. But they weren’t, and my dad was working on a water line at my house and two of them had gotten into the truck engine.
One died on the 80mph drive to the vet. The other is hanging on - he has a severely broken leg, but the vet put him in the oxygen tent and got him stable. Waiting to hear the results of the x-rays.
My vet, bless him, answered his emergency line on the second ring.
The other two kittens now absolutely have to be trapped.
