Love can take many forms. When Carmen Weinberg saw the pitiful tabby kitten sitting and crying on the sidewalk of a Florida mobile home park she intuited that this little being needed exactly the kind of love she had to offer.
As founder of Animal Friends Project, she had access to a humane trap and set it up with tasty food to entice the little kitten into it. The hungry baby, although slightly hesitant at first, quickly entered the trap and ravenously began eating the free meal. She was so hungry she didn’t even seem to notice when the trap snapped shut behind her.
Although the kitty was uncertain about the trap at first, when Carmen removed her from the trap, she immediately felt the baby melt under her touch, in complete tranquility. The endearing kitty had a host of health issues, including anemia caused by the parasites that were rampant inside and on her tiny body.
She quickly bathed away the pests from the outside of her new little buddy and began feeding her supplements and medication to take care of the rest. Carmen entrusted the kitty’s care to a foster caregiver, who named her Estrella – the Spanish word for Star. The grateful little girl craves love and attention, and as the shining Star that she is, she will likely have all the love and attention she deserves from here on out.
