    So I was on my way to work this morning driving my normal path and I come to a red light. A car had hit a kitten and the poor thing was trying to move with two legs.. The other two both on the same side had been crushed.. Its raining and cold and just a miserable day. I am sitting there in a new suit, warm car and gloves. I just couldn't take it... (this is one of the major streets in my city). I flip on my flashers get out of the car go to the middle of the intersection and pick the little thing up. Not a car moves... I get back in, put the little guy in the passenger seat (its making the worst sounds I have ever heard). Luckily my son had left his gym bag in the back and towel was hanging out, so I wrapped him up. Pulled a U turn in the intersection and went to the animal hospital a few blocks away. Long story short a ruined suit, two missed morning meetings, and about $2,000 in vet bills so far, I have a new little cat I'm gonna call.... Rudy. The little thing lost one leg completely but the vet salvaged the other. I thought they would just put it down but they asked me if I wanted them to try and save it and well I couldn't say no. He is resting at the hospital for now and they told me in 2 weeks I may be able to bring him home.

    And to top it all off I am allergic to cats, starting allergy shots.

    I would have cried like a girl at this story if the poor little bugger had died. Good show taking him in and may your allergies be minimal.

    Good for you. The cat will appreciate it, all rescues seem to.

    Hang on, allergy shots? So you can get treatment for allergies or what? I've always had problems with cats but liked them.

    Good for you, Korben. You have a good heart. And Kas, that's one of the saddest things I've ever read.

    Yeah it is kind of like immunotherapy... the allergist uses what you are allergic to, to treat you. Its kinda controversial but I am gonna try it out. Yeah, I have always loved cats too, and well now its not really an option, I am keeping this one.

    Props to you, sir. It's good to see someone with some sense of humanity (catanity?) left.
