Alright dA-ers, listen up!
Yesterday, on my way to work from class, I spotted a tiny bundle along the curb of a highly transited road. It turned out to be a kitten. I parked the car, ran to her, snatched her from the starting rain (no kidding), and after a few scratches of fear and omg what the fuck are you doing, I got her to my car and headed home. So, now I have a lovely little kitten in my garage, meowing for a mommy that won't come, afraid of every single sound, and looking for a loving and caring home.
Sadly, to my most profound dismay, seeing as I long for a feline cuddly ball of hair, I cannot keep her, lest I want to end up homeless (something I'd consider given other circumstances, but c'est la vie). So I am giving her temporary housing while I desperately search for a forever home to this gorgeous baby. Based on some research and inquiries, she's about a month old, maybe a tiny bit more.
Here's a photo of the beautiful babe: scontent-mia1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v…
So, SHOUTOUT TO ALL DEVIANT ANIMAL LOVERS!
I am willing to cost all of the healthcare aspects of the kitten (shots, meds [if needed], neutering, etc.) AND if I have some money left (for you see, I am a broke fool as well), I could help pay for the flight of the kitty. If she is indeed a bit over a month old, that gives us about 2-3 months to prepare and coordinate all that has to be done before neutering (I was told that can be done after the kitty's 4 months or older, I can check and update on this as soon as I got the info.)
IF you are the lucky deviant who will adopt the biggest joy of your life, please please please, give me a note and we can arrange accordingly. I don't want her to be put in a shelter where she'll be kept in a cage all day or, worse, killed, that's not what I saved her for. So please, if you would like her or if you know anyone who would and is a responsible, loving kitty future parent, let me know ASAP.
Spread the word!
(PS: I'll post a better image of her tomorrow, she's not easy to photograph XD)UPDATE
Today, after little more than four hours of waiting time and hunger and cold, the kitty was checked out by a vet. She tested negative for parasites (hooray!), but still was given some preventive med, her little paw cushions seemed to have been burnt from walking in the hot pavement, but after some cleaning up and applying of this solution the vet told me she should be just fine. Since she's so small we have to wait 2-3 weeks to give her the first round of meds, and a couple of months at least to sterilize. All in all, she's a feisty sweetheart!
Anyone interested, note me, note me, note me! Or comment on this journal

Let's find this little one a forever home!UPDATE
New video of the kitty's development!www.facebook.com/dorian.tessle…
As we can see, she likes to play, she learned to use the litter box on her first try, and she eats all her food (and loves to be cuddled and searches for your hand to do it
Spread the word, show this kitten to the world to find her a home! UPDATE
I found someone who wants the kitten. Woot woot!
The downside? The person live in Omaha, Nebraska. Another downer? I don't like there. I did say I would send her anywhere so long as it was a caring, forever home, however, I don't want to send the little creature in cargo. She's so small and I don't want that for her. So, I need a sort of kitten chaperon to escort her in the passenger's cabin during the trip. I cover all the kitten's expenses, as promised, I just need someone travelling from Puerto Rico to Omaha in about a month or so.If anyone happens to know of a person that fits these requirements, please please please let me know ASAP so I can begin arrangements and vet consults and such.
