Nurse – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

The young nurse was on her way to the hospital to start her shift when she spotted a stray kitten meowing by some bushes. She could tell it looked very young and weak, and obviously needed help. Not seeing any signs of siblings or the mother cat, she took the kitten to the nearest shelter, where they were able to place the kitten with a cat who’d just had kittens. The mother cat instantly accepted the kitten and let it nurse from her. Relieved that the kitten would be nursed back to health, the young nurse headed to work.

It was a last-ditch effort, she knew, but with no other plan available, it was the only option they had left. If it worked, even if the resulting peace didn’t last, it would be better than letting the war continue. So she gave the go-ahead for it and prayed it would work.
