Had been seeing too-little of kittens running wild around the gated garbage dump that I often walk by with my dogs .
These little ones looked hungry and lost but would not let me approach them close enough to see how many there were.
So now I couldn't leave the little thing in there ! He was just a tiny kitten and although he first tried to jump back out , he quickly decided instead to burrow his way all the way to the bottom of the dumpster . The dumpster which I had no idea when would be emptied ?!? And so I called the Blossom Animal Rescue trapper team who showed up within 10 minutes while I stood guard . Some dumpster diving and several cat bites later , this little guy was in a box and on the way to safety!
Since that day , one week ago, he has been confirmed as male and named August. (Augustine for short lol) His plan for being fixed and returned has been cancelled as August has become very affectionate in a very short time . Although his huge eyes showed that he is still somewhat bewildered to have been abducted by aliens , after lots of warm laps and cuddles he has begun to purr. He proved himself to be starving and ate non stop for the first few days but now he knows his food is coming and his people are kind and he's up for becoming a real pet- domestic style ! August still has to be fixed but once he is, he will be up for adoption!
