My name is Jellybean, I am just a kitten, and I am a survivor. On Tuesday, April 1, 2008 I was dropped off at the vet's office with burns on my head, tail, and feet. The person who dropped me off said that their 3 year old child had put me in the microwave and set it for three minutes. I since I can't speak "humanese" I can't confirm that story or deny it. I was in severe pain and there was a discussion as to whether I should be "put to sleep" or given a chance to live. The vet decided to give me that chance.
I had to have one leg amputated along with my tail. I also lost my ears. I have burns on the tops and bottoms of my remaining paws but they are healing. I am doing well and will be going to a new forever home with people who will take care of me as soon as I am well enough to leave the vet's office.
Please teach your children that all animals are living creatures and that we need to be cared for. We are not toys. We feel pain when we are hurt. I am one of the lucky ones.
My name is Jellybean. I'm only 8 weeks old. I am a survivor.
