Got a call at 5pm yesterday that someone had seen a kitty in the ATM drive thru 
lane at a local bank. I ran up there & didn't see a thing at first. She was a 
tiny brown tabby sitting so still in the leaves that I didn't even see her. She 
blended right in. She was so cold & wet & could barely make a sound. I put her 
in a carrier wrapped in a towel & met some other volunteers who took her to the 
emergency vet.
She was so cold her temp didn't even register. She was FeLV positive & had 
severe ulcers in her mouth. The vet estimated her to be about 2 years old 
though she looked like she was only 3 months old. After some time trying to 
raise her temp they determined the best thing was to euthanize her. Her heart 
was barely pumping. 
I named her Lola so she would have a name before going over the Rainbow Bridge.
It is so sad to think how long she may have been there & how many people saw 
her & just kept going without a second thought. What a sad story. Even sadder 
because I know she is just one of many who meet their end this way. At least 
she had a name :(
