We, the rejected ones, the unwanted and discarded, we will rise again. We will not be forgotten and fade as shadows in the night, for we are survivors and we will fight. ~ the Strays

How sad! I was thinking at first the people that took Digit and dropped her off were some animal shelter people, but now I'm thinking it's the people that own Mama, and everytime she has kittens they take them far away to a rural area and abandon them there.

A very emotional piece. Well done!

You're close!

Thank you <3

I'm looking forward to the next episode. It's a great story!

Love this - your writing is so gripping

Fantastic story! I love this. Poor Digit.
And boy do I regret trapping my feral friend Freddie (he had bitten me so I had to so I could quarantine him), then taking him to be fixed, ear tipped, nails clipped and rabies vaccinated. The poor fellow had just started to trust me. After that he disappeared for a few days and I had to start nearly over getting him to trust me again. Now he's in my house at night and roaming outside during the day, so I think we've made our peace. But this story makes me so sad for all the little kittens and even the grown up cats that humans think they know so much more about how the cats should be living than the cats themselves do.

I operate a rescue home for burned and abused cats and kittens. I used to work with all animals but one day I counted 18 kittens, 6 cats, 1 dog, 1 puppy, a Houdini snake, an ADHD hamster with rapid tooth growth condition, a bearded dragon, and a bunny, all at once in my 3 bedroom house, I reluctantly had to downsize my efforts. Its not that I didn't have the ability, its that I didn't have the quality time to spend with each one. After treating their immediate medical needs, their hearts need healing next- which is the longest part of the process. Getting a pet to trust again and open it's heart after suffering abuse takes great patience and time. But it's so totally worth it <3

Unfortunately, the evil and disgusting things some humans will do to animals is horrific and disturbing, and I've become quite jaded. However, I can't not keep helping :)

It's truly a labor of love. And the inspiration for The Strays Series.

Freddie is blessed to have an amazing friend in you <3

You have a pure, kind heart! Thank you for speaking for the animals who have no voice! @arbitrarykitten💫💓🐾

I read that you once had your own personal zoo. We need more people like you and more love for the creatures that make us more soft and to deal with life. Thanks for the shared story piece

Oh no this story is so sad. It is so hard to read and I could not bear the little kitten being separated from Mama. I hope this has a happier ending as I could not bear sad stories. Too much drama in life already.

Disposing of animals like this, no comment!

Mama kitty knew what was coming trying to explain, no wonder so many strays live the streets today.

A well told story thanks, hope it makes some think before abandoning any pet.

Run Digit run!! "in stinks" are strong in this one. Cute story.. Not sure yet whether to feel sad, or excited. This new chapter could bring good things to Digit. Digit will be just fine. I know it!!

Aww, poor Digit! How frightening for the poor little creature. It is definitely an interesting take on the story to look at it from the kittens point of view.

Fantastic story. Great reflection on instincts. Humans too have them but we are taught to gradually ignore them until we bury them so deep in social adaptability that we forget who we are and what is our purpose.
You did a great job transmiting the perspective of the terrified cats and all the drama and uncertainty produced by humans.

A gripping story line here my friend. Glad that I am not the only one that gives voices to animals hahaha.

Well done, @arbitrarykitten! Poor little Digit. My heart aches for her! Cruelty to animals and abandonment are terrible, and I know it happens all the time. I will hope for a happy ending!

Hello @arbitrarykitten. A beautiful and sad story. People throw away animals without a second thought. The sad part about it is if they don't want to get they spayed, then give them to a loving home or do it the right way. I hate to see animals running in the streets, becoming victims of accidents. It breaks my heart. There is always an alternative.

Irresponsible pet owners should be penalized to the fullest extent of the law. They do their dirt under cover of night or out of sight, traveling long distances sometimes.

Thanks for sharing this lovely story through the eyes of those who are the victims.
