A friend found an abandoned kitten at the Bosphorus University. She was so tiny, so scared, hungry, dirty and covered with fleas. We took care of her. We first fed her, then washed her and got rid of the nasty fleas. She first started crying while we are washing her, but a few minutes later, she liked it and started purring.
