A malnourished, fur-and-bones black kitten suspected of being dumped near Kenilworth Road is in need of a good home.
The Kenilworth Road resident who temporarily took the female kitten in told Patch the animal had no tags or any identification. If she were from the area, the resident said, he would expect the owners to have searched around and made contact with people in the neighborhood.
No one in the area has claimed the tiny kitten, probably less than two months old and perhaps weighing 2 lbs.
The kitten, recently bathed, was still quite smelly and seems to have ear mites. She was outside for what appeared to be a few days in Ridgewood before being found by neighborhood kids.
Extremely friendly – and vocal – the kitten does slightly resemble a(n adorable) gremlin.
The homeowner who temporarily took in the kitten has been providing cat food and water, as well as initiating a litter box training program (a work in progress). She's had her shots and bloodwork done, along with medication for the ear mites.
