A month or so ago Kit found an abandoned week old kitten on the road in Balfron - cars had been driving over it and one had hit its tail and back leg.
She picked it up and took it to the vets where it got jabs to help with the pain and swelling and then she took it home for four hourly feeds and nursed it back to health.
Now Charlie is a bouncy kitten - a bit skinny, a bit prone to eye infections, but generally OK - and he is staying with us for his holidays. I fear however that the novelty of a bottle feeding kitten may lead him to regress.
Even the older members of our family seem to have taken to him.
I think that there will be a lot of long faces when he goes back after the fortnight.
