“When it started to get dark, we went back to make sure she was gone, but we could still hear her little cries,” McKenzie told The Dodo. “I was so glad we picked her up because I don’t think she would have made it. She was only a day or two old. She couldn't see, her ears were still folded and she was starving.”
McKenzie named the pocket-sized kitten Polly, after Polly Pocket. The kitten was covered with fleas, so McKenzie brought her inside and immediately gave her a bath in the sink. Just then, McKenzie's 12-year-old Lab, Paxton, came in to see what was happening.
