Malcolm and "No Name Yet" Kitten

Please check out a very special site: http://www.droppedin.com/, run by Malcolm and Jillian.

A few days ago, while out for a "coffee fix", Malcolm saw something in the street, limping in traffic. With two cars aiming for it, he ran into traffic, stopped the cars, and retrieved a half-dead kitten. The Momma cat stood helplessly on the curb watching, unable to venture into the congested traffic.

Malcolm first tried to find the owner, knocking on doors nearby. Then, realizing the cat was barely breathing, he rushed it to a nearby animal hospital. "No Name Yet", the kitten's temporary name, is now recovering at home with Malcolm.

What happens next is the ongoing story at his website. So far he is out over $1300 in vet bills and is trying to raise funds online. He posts regularly throughout the day as the developments unfold.

If you can donate, please do. But even if you can't, check out his site. Just the heartwarming story of a young man saving an innocent kitten from certain death makes it a good read. After all the negative news we endure on a daily basis, finding one person like Malcom makes it all worthwhile. Please, please, please, pass this story on to everyone you know.

Very nice! I've been trying to spread the word too. I hope he keeps the little cutie - he seems like a great guy. I keep checking back to see the updates. I'm obsessed!
