Trapped kitten and reflection

So I am fostering a little kitten right now, who is about 11 weeks old. She was rescued from the streets, partially feral and super tiny at 7 weeks old. She's a downright terror now πŸ™‚ Last night as I was putting her in the bathroom for bed time, I noticed the door was not... Continue Reading →

There and Back, Around a Corner
