Somehow he stood out from the other two who were pure white. A few days went by, and raining after two days, a little white/black kitten was wet and shaking as he sat on the porch. It was a night of torrentious downpour. The rain almost flooded the neighborhood streets and as Drew expected, the litter of kittens didn’t make it, all except the white/black kitten. Not knowing what to do, Drew came out and picked up the stringy wet kitten, shaking and hungry.
After drying him and feeding, Drew went back to the back door of his kitchen which led back to the porch where a chair had been placed. This is where he set the 2-week old kitten. Although the little critter didn’t want to stay in the chair, he ran in before the door closed behind them, Drew and the kitten. It was still raining outside, what was Drew to do? Well, he might as well keep him indoors with him until the next day, or at least until the rain subsided. He also remembers that the black/white kitten’s family was gone. Drew couldn’t let him go after that, therefore, he decided to keep him. Another individual saving an animal’s life that couldn’t save himself. Drew has had “Lil’Critter’ for 2 years now.
