A kitten by a road side.

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,

  1. I hope whoever tied kept here there, comes back to take her / free her. I have read of cases where people did something like that and it backfired because the kitty either died of hunger or couldn’t run away in case of animal attacks

    • Well, you can call it Carnism or any other name you like, but it doesn’t apply here because IHM happens to be vegetarian, as far as I know. And in any case, I don’t see why eating meat should disqualify someone from showing affection towards whichever animal tugs at their heartstrings!

  2. Do you know that i was somehow waiting for a comment from Tejaswee on this post and the one above it! For one minute, i kept scrolling up and down to see a comment from her! Not sure why i kept feeling that.

  3. So sweet, the kitten sure is familiar with human affection! Pictures with brats remind me of our childhood, when my sister and I would bring home little puppies in cold winters to give them a cosy resting place but they would just run away.🙂
