SAFE 7/25/17 ***Must Find Placement by 6pm*** Itty Bits the kitten has a wound but with some TLC will be back on her paws in no time! Meet her today @MACC! Meet Itty Bits: Itty Bits is too cute to be believed!! She has a wound on her left hind leg but the DVM believes with antibiotics and some TLC, she’ll be as good as new! She is getting the hang of eating on her own but would appreciate a watchful eye to make sure she’s getting enough nutrition to grow big and strong! This tiny tot does need placement by 6pm today.
