And to keep things interesting for the fellow members of her group, K regularly scouts out new running routes around Sacramento’s wild places. So, one hot day in June 2017, K and a companion found themselves preparing to do exactly that. The intrepid pair then took off into the great unknown to find a new challenge for their jogging club.
At first the exploratory run went without incident. However, something was about to happen that stopped the pair in their tracks and left them chilled. You see, as the runners approached a bush, all of a sudden they were alerted to pitiful cries coming from its interior.
After hearing the distressing sob, the joggers immediately stopped their run to survey the scene and listen more keenly. It was then that the two women caught a glimpse of a small black creature crawling out of the bush’s foliage. A closer look subsequently revealed that the dark mass was, in fact, a tiny newborn kitten. And investigating further, K and her friend soon discovered that the little fella was by no means alone.
