The northwest wind was blowing, and temperatures were dropping fast when George heard the loud cries. Unable to allow anything to suffer in the raging storm, he knew he had to try to help.
Following the sound of desperate pleas, he reached into a cold, muddy puddle under his car and lifted out a tiny newborn kitten. Shocked, George quickly took her inside the safety of his house, wrapping her in warm towels.
Realizing the urgent situation, George called an animal rescue service who agreed to come for the kitten immediately.
While waiting for their arrival, George settled in with the kitten, gently holding her close to his heart and humming softly as he silenced her cries.
