Careless throwing of poisoned rodent carcass in the open takes away the life of feral kittens.
This human negligence killed a hungry black male feral kitten through "Secondary Poisoning".
Weeks later when the dead feral's sibling, an orange male kitten was found vomiting yellowish frothy mucous followed by bloody stools, a visit to the Vet was helpful in restoring his health back to normal within a week.
Being the weakest in his all male kindle of three, he has been compensated by Mother Nature with a loud meow which made me feed him in his "no food days".
These feeding stints helped him avoid eating rodent carcass when in extreme hunger.
Now when ever he is hungry he comes to my home, eats, sleeps on his special mattress for a while and leaves to play with his brawny orange brother.
Yesterday he hunted his first pigeon and did not let his brawny brother share it till he had his fill.
Long live the weak kittens when timely care and affection are provided by us humans.
