"every kitten needs a name."

I was going to blog on the dogs in Roy De Forest's paintings, but (audible braking sounds) I find instead I must bring you this story of a holiday kitten rescue.

Kyle Cassidy is a photographer. He did a card series for West Philadelphia's City Kitties Rescue, and was called upon this past Christmas to help a momcat and kittens in need - particularly one kitten of the bunch, who went missing for days in rain and subzero temperatures. Kitten was found, miraculously alive, but six hours later not looking so good. So Kyle, who was on crutches at the time, had a friend drive him and kitten to the emergency vet. They asked him the baby's name, at which he admitted he didn't have one in case it died. That's when they said:

"Every kitten needs a name. Give it a Christmas name."
He named it Bing. Happy ending and photos, oh, the photos, here.

WOW! That is one tough kittie!

And an almost annoyingly cute one.

It is nice to see a story with a happy ending.
