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!

GIANT EARTHWORMS RETURN

LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) -- Giant worms! No, we're not talking about a summer horror flick but the result of spring showers. Rare, giant earthworms are appearing on the Palouse Prairie in Idaho. Worm lover Cass Davis tells the Lewiston Tribune he found three foot-long worms while hiking last weekend. He thinks they're giant Palouse earthworms, which can grow up to a yard long. The worms were believed to have been extinct until a researcher found one a decade ago.

SEX FOR DRUG TESTS

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- It's a case involving sex and drugs -- but with a twist. Now a lab tech is going to prison. Prosecutors in Albuquerque, New Mexico, say Jayson Bice offered to fix women's drug tests in exchange for sex. He's been sentenced to six years.

HOUSTON GORILLAS

HOUSTON (AP) -- It's a $28 million dream home. But the residents are just a bunch of big apes. The Houston Zoo is showing off its new gorilla quarters. Seven of the endangered primates now live in the new state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor exhibit. A family of three of those gorillas are transplants from the Bronx Zoo in New York. It took Houston Zoo officials four years of fundraising and construction to make the gorilla home a reality.

WATER USE APP

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) -- Some California school kids are turning high-tech entrepreneurs. Five Riverview Elementary School students in Fresno have come up with an idea for an app to monitor water use. The state is in the grip of a record drought. The Fresno Bee reports the kids presented their idea to officials in March. Now, the Fresno Chamber of Commerce and businesses including AT&T are kicking in more than 50,000 bucks to develop the app. It will be free and should be available for download by the time school starts in the fall.
