There are some animals that are small enough to be picked on by other animals and by birds, and kittens fit into that category. There are things that can happen to a kitten because of its small size that are scary and that can be traumatic. There was a kitten recently who was picked up by a hawk. This kitten was carried up into the air by the hawk and she would have been taken away even farther if it were not for a couple of men on the ground. The men could not watch the bird take the kitten away without putting up some kind of a fight. They startled the bird, causing it to drop the kitten and let it fall to the ground. The kitten fell from the height of a second story.
The kitten taken by the hawk was a kitten without a home and a family. After the traumatic experience, this kitten was taken to a pet rescue organization. The kitten received a few stitches to help her recover from the fall and then she was placed into a foster home. This kitten is being loved on in the home and she has been given a new chance at life. This kitten came through a lot, and now she is in a good place. There are times when humans must step in if a small animal is going to survive the scary things that he or she is going through, and that is what happened with this kitten.
