Drabble Challenge #125

Prompt: start

"Dad found a box in the snow..." the article begins.

It tells of the unexpected discovery of a Styrofoam box, containing two desperate kittens and a frozen can of cat food.

It has a happy ending...and to that kind man, I'm grateful. But to me, this also implies a whole second story: the story of a first someone, who had such limited resources they could offer only an insulated box, and a little food. Still, they tried...and it bought the kittens time.

It's a story of caring, even when you don't have much to give.

It's a start.
