This photograph is heartbreaking: a sweet yet sad photo of kittens curled up together outside awaiting their fate. It sums up the vulnerability of kittens born outside without human care and without their mother. I don’t know where their mother is or what happened to her but this photograph was taken by the neighbor of a friend of a guy called Chris who describes himself as a cat man – great.
He posted the photograph on Facebook and it caught my eye for the reasons stated. What chance do these kittens have of surviving? I have seen so many kittens with terrible eyes because an upper respiratory infection (URI) has turned into a secondary bacterial infection in their eyes (conjunctivitis – pink eye) which has eaten away at the eyes and left them blind or with the loss of an eye.
