My son Aaron managed to grab another one of the feral kittens that hang out on the edge of town; he has a soft spot for strays, and knows that they’ll freeze to death when the bitter cold comes if left outside.

This one has something wrong with her front leg; it swings around like it’s broken, but she doesn’t seem to be in any pain. It might be a birth defect. We wrapped it up to help her walk easier.

Anyway, I think it is so important to teach our children to be kind to animals. They’ll learn to be kinder all around when they’re older — and our world sure needs that!

Here’s what I believe is an anonymous quote on it to which I wholeheartedly agree:

“How you treat animals

tells me

all I need to know

about you.”

  1. Beautiful kitten, cats are not good at expressing about their pains . They are more like tending to isolate themselves in serious kind of physical trouble . Perhaps this kittens broken limb had healed but the bones fused in wrong position .
