My new kitten!

I adopted her today from a local veterinarian. She was turned loose in the fish dept at Petsmart and the vet took her in to find her a home. She is approx 11 weeks old. I named her Saphira. I'm going to give her a bath, and then I'll try to get some pictures and post them!

Apparently it would've been too much trouble for the people who dumped her to take her safely to a shelter. I cringe to think what could've happened to her if she had've gotten outside. She was only about 7 weeks old when this happened.

Wow, she's stunning!! Also, I thought you meant the workers at petsmart released her in the dept. Someone randomly dumped kitty there? Too bad she was so young and could not realize the dream she had been set upon!

at least they didn't throw her out in the streets, or have her put to sleep just for being alive.

I work at the shelter and have horror stories of what people do to unwanted pets. Its now good that people dump them in places like the shelter and pet stores where it is obvious that someone will help.

She is very cute.

Saphira Nicole. It's pronounced Sa-Fear-Ah.

I'm just glad she was old enough to be away from mom. I actually work at that Petsmart in the grooming dept. I've been trying to talk myself out of getting her for about 3 weeks lol. I'm fortunate to work with the people that I do at that location. They've made me the good pet mom I am today. I had outdoor dogs and that was it when I started working there in 2004. Now all my dogs are indoors, and I actually research pets before I get them.

My parents came home from a party about 1 1/2 months ago..during a storm and they could hear meowing under their porch. (they live out in the country by an old wood mill) My dad had to take the steps offs to get the kitten out. He looked about 7 weeks old. They took him in all cold and scared and were going to find him a home. (my parents are older and didn't want to start again with a new pet) But after a few days they named himm and he was so beautiful they decided to keep him. Then a day later the staff at the mill brought over his little sister that they found in their woodpile. She was smaller but identical to the other kitten. They took her in too. These kittens are litter trained. So someone had them long enough to train them and then dump them in the wild. There are tons of hazards and coyotes arund there. Im surprised they survived. They female isn't as social as the male but she was in the wild a week longer than him too. They named them Mr. Jiggs (idk why) and Milly (cause she was found at the mill ) I think theyre keepers.

Aw, I love the name Saphira!! She's some sweet
@jojo, mama cats teach their kittens how to scratch in the litter. I watched my mom's cat Mama teach her 2 babies when I had her. But, my sisters cat came from some **** who lets her cats out unfixed and deals with many litters a year and none of them has never seen a vet, anyway, Illusion (sisters cat) was never shown how to use the litter box by his mom bc they were "weaned" too early (this lady also gets sick of having so many kittens around that she "weans" them at like 6 weeks or earlier. We tried and tried a whole pile of different things to make him cover his stuff but he's 4 now and still does not know how.

Mr.Jiggs and Milly- I love that!
