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!

SELFIE CRASH

ORIENT, Maine (AP) -- Texting and driving? Not safe. Driving while taking a selfie? Even more not safe. Police in Maine say a man crashed his car while taking a selfie with his passengers. Authorities say several people were hurt when 29-year-old Jordan Toner lost control of the vehicle he was driving with seven passengers. When he leaned over to take the selfie, his car ran off the road and hit a tree. He's been hit with a distracted driving summons.

DESTINY'S CHALLENGE

BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Sheriff's deputies in Idaho are trying to find their destiny. That's Destiny as in the girl's name -- not their reason for being. Authorities have been interviewing more than a dozen girls named Destiny as they try to crack a vandalism case. It seems someone spray-painted a prom invitation on part of the Black Cliffs in southwest Idaho back in May. The message read: "Destiny, Prom?" If authorities can track down who was trying to woo Destiny, that person's destiny could be jail. The crime is punishable by up to six months behind bars and a fine of $1,000.

GRENADE BROUGHT TO POLICE STATION

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- A grenade in hand -- was worth a lot of concern to police in South Burlington, Vermont. A woman found a hand grenade in her grandfather's belongings -- and decided to bring it to the police station. That got their attention. Police cleared the department and nearby buildings -- because they weren't sure if the grenade was live. In the end, the state bomb squad had to come in to deal with the grenade. As late as yesterday, authorities hadn't determined whether the grenade was dangerous or inactive. They are urging residents who find grenades or other potentially devices to leave them where they are -- and call the police.

TELESCOPE MISTAKEN FOR RIFLE

FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- They were hoping to check out some stars. But the first light they saw when trying to use their telescope -- was that from police officers who mistook their telescope for a rifle. Levi Joraanstad and Colin Waldera were setting up their telescope behind their apartment Monday when police flashed a bright light into their eyes and told them to freeze. The students couldn't see who was shining the light -- and thought it was a prank by other students. Despite the confusion, it turned out O.K. Police say the students were never in any danger -- and that police approached them because they'd rather be safe than sorry.
