Well, one came into the warehouse on a trailer today...:shrug:

I was on my way back from lunch and in the stairwell off the lobby (there's an alcove next to the stairs they use for temporary storage and they keep a cart/table thingy there) was the purchasing director and a guy from animal control, transferring a little kitten from a cardboard box into a carrying cage. He was a little gray tabby, maybe about 6 weeks old, and they found him on a trailer they were unloading. They weren't sure if he had been injured by a pallet jack or not (nothing visible but she said his one paw seemed to hurt him), but he seemed pretty weak; there's a good chance he's been in that truck for a few days at least (don't know where the delivery came from)...he still managed to get a tooth into her finger through a glove, though. The purchasing director tried to get him to eat some food while they were waiting for animal control but he wouldn't eat anything. He was laying on his side and kept opening his mouth like he was crying but no sound came out. Poor little thing. I hope he's okay. :(

aw, poor baby! I hope he/she gets a nice new home with a lot of love...but I won't be surprised if it spends it's life hissing at books.

I would totally have taken him home if I could (or at least asked the guy what vet he was taking him to so I could inquire about him after work). Alas, no pets allowed. :(

The poor little guy was just laying there crying, but he had no voice. I just wanted to cuddle him and make him feel better.

I will take kitty if I could....hope all ends well with him

I'll have to ask the purch. director if she knows how he's doing.
