P-17: The Abandoned Cat
Female | Born May 2010 | Died August 2010
This young kitten was abandoned by her mother, P-13, after three months. Although anticoagulants were found in her system, the official cause of death was ruled as starvation. P-17 was born in a litter of three, with brother and sister, P-18 and P-19, respectively, in the spring of 2010, and it is thought that her abandonment may have been due to her not being able to keep up with her siblings, or her first-time mother not having the capacity to raise a litter of three. P-17’s father was P-12.
