On Thursday, September 11th, Maggie Costa, a member of the Newspaper Staff, rescued a lost kitten who found its way onto our campus. Maggie set out to the freshman wing on an errand for the class and as she passed through the front doors of the school, a flash of orange disappeared into the bushes. Unsure of what it was, she returned to the class to fetch her friend to look around, in an attempt to figure out exactly what she had seen.
Facing the thorny bushes and spiderwebs that were sure to be tangled among the leaves, Maggie and her friend scoured the area, disappointed that the mysterious orange creature was nowhere to be found. Maggie was sure she had seen something and was positive it could not have gone far.
They continued to the second set of trees to search for the creature and were about to give up when they heard a noise. They listened for more and heard a faint “meow” coming from the bushes Maggie had already searched. Following the noise, Maggie moved the spiny branches and sitting at the top of the bushes was a tiny, orange, kitten, unable to get down from the frightening limbs.
Its little body trembling and its claws gripping the branches for safety, the kitten was trapped.
Maggie crawled into the bushes and grabbed the scared little thing, who was of course biting and swatting its tiny paws at her hands.
Escaping with a few scratches and dirty hands, Maggie rescued the tiny cat and found it a good home.
