Rescue Cat stretches out on King size bed that is actually “Fit for a Queen!”

At only two weeks old cat pictured was rescued from a ditch on a raining day in September. Students outside the high school were coming back from a run during P.E. Class and heard her weakly crying out. Rescued and taken straight to the vet, who wasn’t sure if she would make it since she was having trouble breathing. Vet recommended taking her home, try to feed her with an eye dropper or a tiny kitty bottle with milk supplement if we could get her to drip it. After multiple tries every hour, we finally got her to take a few little tastes after it had been 24 hours since we had gotten her out of the ditch. Well that was almost one year ago, and today she is th picture of health. She loves to stretch out on our king size bed which in her case is actually fit for a “Queen”. She is named - Miss Comette” since where she was found behind the high school - their school mascot is COMETS- so what better name to call her than Miss Comette.
