Kitten Rescue in Boracay

We found ourselves a 1/4 pounder!

There is a McDonalds on Boracay but I’m not talking about that kind of 1/4 pounder. I will explain…

As mentioned in my previous post, we stumbled upon a very poorly little kitten on the way back from buying fruit and veg late one evening.
