Pulling Over To Investigate She Heard A Meow And Saw A Tiny Kitten Dragging Its Leg

She thought she saw a t-shirt lying on the side of the road and decided to take a closer look. Pulling over she heard a meow and saw a tiny kitten dragging its leg.

Yesenia Dela Cueva was driving from California a couple of weeks ago when she thought she saw what looked like a t-shirt lying on the side of the road. Something didn’t seem quite right so she decided to pull over and take a closer look.

Suddenly the t-shirt meowed and as she got closer she saw that it was a tiny white kitten dragging one of its legs as it tried to walk. What surprised Yesenia, even more, was that the kitten allowed her to approach and didn’t try to flee.

In fact, it allowed her to pick it up and wrap it in a blanket.

Yesenia to the little furball home, noticing the little girl was covered in fleas. She gave her bath, followed by a meal. At last, they could both get some much-needed sleep.

“I reached out to a Facebook page for advice. I had never had a cat so I knew nothing about them,” said Yesenia.

Yesenia had never had a cat before and almost knew nothing about them. As she would soon be moving to the East Coast she thought the best solution would be to find her a family.

Not wanting to get attached she didn’t name her. The next day they went to a shelter, however, the organization had almost no resources and could not take her in.

Feeling after meeting so many dead ends that this was meant to be, Yesenia adopted her. She gave her the name Bella, and she had her forever home, a family of her own.

“I was growing so attached to her, and just wanted her to feel safe. I took her to the vet and asked that they do the necessary to prepare her to fly,” Yesenia said.
