creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

Serendipity…

ser·en·dip·i·ty noun \ˌser-ən-ˈdi-pə-tē\

: the gift of finding valuable or agreeable things not looked for

Six mornings out of the week I meet up with a friend and together we walk 4 miles.

Living in the country offers so much beauty and on these walks we are able to drink deeply that beauty that surrounds us…daily…year ’round. We’ve seen moose and elk and each day we see deer and scenery that is breath-taking. This time of year it’s fun to keep a watch out for fawn…the sight I never tire of.

This morning we heard an earnest, desperate cry coming from a deep ditch. I climbed down and found this cute little kitten cowering at the bottom. I could tell that he had somehow been injured but it didn’t seem too severe.

I brought him home, warmed up some fresh goat’s milk and he ate and ate and ate and ate.

Now he is sleeping so soundly that nothing stirs him.

Although I don’t plan on keeping him, I’ve named him Serendipity as he was an accidental discovery.

This picture shows that he has a fairly severe mouth injury but he eats well, purrs well and sleeps well and I know that’s a good sign.

{that kind of has a ring to it…could I sell a sign that saysEat Well * Purr Well * Sleep Well…probably not}

My concern will be to watch out for infection as it heals. If anyone has any suggestions {besides the veterinary clinic} I would love to hear them.
