The story of Itty Kitty

Leaving work (a hospital in Norfolk, VA) on Tuesday night, April 22, 2014, I heard a faint cry of a kitten, only to discover this "itty kitty" abandoned approximately 8' down in a sewer. I called Security to try and help me get him out of the drain. It was "after hours" for Animal Control and I stopped two firefighters, who wished me luck on getting him out of the drain. While security was trying to find a ladder I got the idea to call my father to bring a fishing net to try and save him. The fishing net did not work so well, since he was wedged in a corner and the net would not reach him. So my father, without hesitation, climbed down in the drain to get him out. 

That night I noticed his left leg was rotating out if he was placed on his back and that he had a serious break and maybe more health problems. My husband took him to the vet, they took X-rays and showed a bone completely broken in two and would require surgeries and possible amputation.

When I called animal control, their recommendation was not surgery. I could not let this itty  kitty be put down. So, after a few people heard of his story and offered to help donate funds, my husband and I set up this site. Even the smallest contribuation will help make a difference, and we would deeply appreciate it. This is a safe link to make donations and the donation you make will go directly to the kitten's vet bill. Thank you in advance for any consideration.

Love, Karen, Michael and Itty Kitty
