So, last night I discovered an injured kitten. My dependent aunt was having trouble with her dog last night about 6:30, so I went over to see what was the matter. When I got over there, I found a kitten on her steps, terrified of her dog and with a pretty bad looking eye infection. I tried to approach it, but it was pretty scared of me too. After a minute of coaxing, it let me open the gate for it to get onto her fenced off porch, where I could lock the dog out. There it drank heavily from the dog's water dish. I got it some milk which it also drank heavily, poor thing. Eventually I put the dog in the house and the kitten calmed down. I wasn't really sure what to do with it, so I laid a towel out for it and made a little house for it out of an old box, then I ate dinner while mulling over the situation. I'd have liked to have kept the kitten myself, but I had no way of healing its eye, so I decided to take it to an emergency animal hospital. When I got back to it, it was resting in the little house I made it (so adorable). I do hope the poor little thing turns out okay.
