This kitten (in Pune on the side of a busy road) had a rope around it’s neck, the other end was secured under a stone – I think to prevent it from being run over.
It called out to those who would hear him.
This head butt is a how Sherkhan expresses his affection…
I wish he wasn’t born here, or brought here, to live by a busy road 😦
But it does have a family, for now.
And plenty of love from people passing by,
Note: All pictures taken with ISO set at 3200 for some shots the evening before 😦

Here’s why I didn’t think the kitten had been abandoned.
