Phoebe The Pit Bull Saves Kitten's LIfe
"Phoebe the pit bull was just sniffing around on her regular morning walk when a meow coming from a pile of trash in an alley got her attention.
`I heard this little meow and walked over to the pile, but Phoebe got right in and then had her nose through a hole in a cardboard box,` said the dog`s caretaker, who asked to be identified only by her first name, Melissa.
`I looked through a little hole made when the kitten apparently tried to escape and saw him inside. I could not believe it.`
Melissa called police and Troy animal control took the small gray cat to the Troy Veterinary Hospital for treatment, said Capt. John Cooney, Troy police spokesman."

Thank goodness that there are more Melissa`s and Phoebe`s in the world than there are sick creatures who consider a beautiful kitten trash.
Case in point:
"For Christmas this year, Chris Cooley gave a stranger a generous gift in exchange for something he considers priceless.Chris knows that his pooch is priceless, and he gladly gave a pile of loot to the gentleman who found his beloved dog.
When someone called him on Christmas Eve and said he`d found his missing golden retriever, the Cotulla rancher promptly handed over the $10,000 he`d sworn as reward money for whomever returned his dog, Jim Bowie." " target="_new" style="color: rgb(0, 0, 156); text-decoration: underline; ">Read more
Let`s hope that the wee kitten will find a home with a person who loves pets as much as Chris, Melissa and Phoebe.
