Sad day

8:30 this morning (Aug 1/06) my aunt couldn't find her kitten that she rescue and kept her. They named her Missy, got her spayed and all her shots. She went look everywhere for her. My aunt went on in the backyard then she happen to look on the road. There was Missy laying. Poor little girl got hit by a car. They are really upset about it. Both of them bury her in the backyard. Janet said there is soo much traffic come zooming by even on the side street. Missy is small and was only kitten. My aunt said she is going by to where she found the kitten, she heard there are still some left hanging around. They might already be wild. How long does it take a kitten to go wild?

I m sorry for the loss of your kitten but this makes no sense. Kittens do not "go wild" - ever!! Unless a kitten was born to a feral mother and depending on the generation of the feral mom (ie was she feral or was her mom feral?), even rescued feral kittens can be socialized.

I keep all my cats inside and that might be something your aunt considers in the future - there are too many dangers outside for kitties!! (esp if she livs near a busy highway!) I am sorry to hear about the little kitten!!!
