Kitten Found! - 07/14/14

Hello all- Last Thursday night my fiancee stopped to get gas on his way home from work in Antioch and there was a poor little kitten abandoned at the gas station. He's an animal lover just like I am, and he didn't have the heart to leave the little fur baby. The kitten spent the ride home in his tool box in his work van and he was so terrified. We made him a little bed and snuggled him up with food and water in our guest bathroom as soon as they got in. Saturday morning I took him to Murphy Road Animal Hospital for his first check up. Turns out the little buddy is about 5 weeks old and weighs only 2 pounds He's completely healthy, and the nurse there said she really thinks he must have just been dropped off at the gas station for a few hours before Danny found him.

We'd love to keep him (haven't named him yet), but we already have two rescue kitties and don't have room for a third. Luckily *this is why I LOVE social media sometimes* I think I found a family for him!! I posted his pics on my facebook, and someone is interested! I'm taking the kitten for a meet and greet to make sure he gets along with the family dog- updates to come! I just can't understand how someone could abandon an innocent little kitten! P.S. He has the best personality and is a cuddle monster- the perfect fit for a loving family!

WEIRD WEATHER

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- With much of the nation digging out from snowstorms -- you might figure Anchorage, Alaska, must be buried. But folks in Alaska's biggest city are asking where's the snow? As a large swath of the Lower 48 shivers, Anchorage is unseasonably warm. The little snow that has fallen has already melted. Not so in western New York, where Buffalo is being buried. There's so much snow on the ground, the NFL has decided to move the Bills' home game against the Jets. The game had been scheduled for Sunday in the Buffalo area, but will be played Monday night in Detroit. The Lions are at New England Sunday.

UNCLAIMED LOTTERY PRIZE

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- A lucky $1 million Powerball winner could soon turn very unlucky. Virginia Lottery officials say the clock is ticking on a winning ticket sold for the June 21 drawing. The ticket hasn't been turned in yet. It will expire at the close of business on Dec. 18 if the jackpot isn't claimed. Virginia Lottery officials note winning tickets are only good for 180 days after the drawing.

CENTENARIAN-FIRST OCEAN VISIT

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (AP) -- Ruby Holt has seen a lot in her more than 100 years. But one thing she never saw was the ocean -- at least not until this month. Holt got a chance to go to the beach, visiting the Gulf coast in Alabama. The trip was made possible by Brookdale Senior Living Solutions, where Holt lives in Columbia, Tennessee, and the Wish of a Lifetime organization. Holt says she had always heard about how wonderful the ocean is and wanted to see for herself. She got a chance to walk across the white sand with a little help and dip her feet into the cool Gulf waters. Holt turns 101 Dec. 13.

GIANT NUTCRACKER

ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) -- It's nuts! A giant nutcracker will be the centerpiece of the annual holiday festival near Roseburg, Ore. Toby Johnson created the monster cracker using a chain saw. It will stand more than 40 feet tall and the nut-crushing power comes from a motor. Cranes are being used to assemble the nutcracker at the site of the festival, which opens Sunday. Sponsors tell The News-Review they're sending documentation to the Guinness people to earn a world's record for the biggest nutcracker.
