My neighbor scooped up a ktten from a house he was cleaning out. He's girlfriend's family would not keep it [their rottweiler wanted to eat it and their granddaughter is too young to understand how to be nice to a kitty].
He was going to take it to the Humane Society, I feared for the kitten at the Humane Society since I knew it would require hand feeding and other special needs until it it old enough to adopt. And I knew they would just put it down.
So we took it in.
