Gut Z was found outside in June, 2012 at three months old, with his guts hanging out. He was brought to a local veterinary clinic where emergency surgery was done to save his life. The clinic arranged for him to be taken to Harmony House for Cats, where I met him. Now, several months later, he is growing and running around like a normal kitten. In addition to that, he seems to be a pretty good sport about wearing a Halloween costume.
