Neighbors Rally to Save Injured Kitten
When Ben, a neighbor in Clifton, Cincinnati, was driving his young daughters to soccer practice, they saw two little kittens trying to cross a busy intersection. Horrified, they watched as traffic whizzed by, hitting both kittens.
The little girls begged him to stop. To their surprise, one kitten had survived – but was obviously in bad shape, with a broken leg and a mangled tail. Immediately, the family called their neighborhood’s animal lover, Laura. She promised to take the kitten to her vet and nurse him back to health under one condition: if the little girls promised to adopt him when he got better. They agreed, and proudly named him Little Mr. Wicket.
Laura posted regularly about the kitten on Nextdoor Clifton to update her neighbors. When the community heard the kitten had to stay at the vet for an extended recovery, many of them called the clinic and sent donations straight there to help cover his vet bills.
Little Mr. Wicket was the talk of the town amongst Clifton neighbors, who were constantly asking for updates on Nextdoor. Many even asked if they could come visit him.
After three months, Little Mr. Wicket healed completely and now has a loving home with the little girls – and Laura visits them often.
