A Kitty with Luck on Her Side

Lucky chewing frenzy

Lucky was found in Giddings, Texas abandoned in the middle of the night by herself. The story of finding her was quite an adventure, involving some very worried cows.

It was late at night and the cows in the neighbor’s pasture were mooing loudly as if they were in pain. My mom and her friend left to check to see what was going on, without telling my friend and I, who were inside, where they went. When I noticed that they were gone I left with a flashlight to go find them. I went over to the cows, but I took a different route then my mom and her friend went. I was walking with my flashlight and I heard a strange noise. I waved my flashlight back and forth, and there on the ground was a little kitten, about a week old, laying down crying.

I picked her up without hesitation, and quickly I found the rest of my party and met up with them. We went back to the house together with the lonely kitten. Once we were inside, the cows’ distress calls subsided.

We rushed to the gas station later that night to look for kitten milk, so we could give the little one the food she desperately needed. We decided to keep her in our home until we found her a good family.

My good friend took her in and she is now super hyper and a big adorable girl.

    I hope the cows are being treated with TLC…

    A lot of people assume cows, pigs, horses etc…have no brains, no caring mode in their cells, don't feel pain etc…..

    Well, they all do…..and they all deserve the GREATEST OF RESPECT…..AND TO BE CARED FOR..

      hear hear, well said, Shar. I believe ALL animals need respect and love and protection. it is amazing how those cows called out and knew there was a baby in need. Thank you cows and of course to the people who found the baby.

    i have no doubt that someone who responded to their cows in distress- as well as having rescued a baby kitten- care a great deal for all living creatures.

  35. What a neat rescue story.

  36. Rachel says:

    What a beautiful story! Fancy being saved by cows, gorgeous! I think in that final photo she is showing her gratitude by pulling a very cow like expression. Love it, so so cute!

    Lucky is indeed lucky that you took the time to find her that night! :))

    • Carol says:

      I had to scroll back up to see that cow-like expression, and you're right! It almost looks like she's meditating and just before saying ohmmmmmmooooooo!! haha!

      What a sweet story – and I just love the part the cows played in the whole thing!

      Daisy or Bessie would've been a good name for her! Or Elsie! But Lucky is perfect!
