The Most Precious and Unexpected Stowaway

When 5-year-old Justice Rose Johnson arrived for surgery on a mid-August morning, she had a little secret inside her backpack. Along with her pajamas, toothbrush and favorite toys, she brought her kitten along to keep her company!

While mom was busy signing paperwork and talking with the patient access representative, a faint meowing sound could be heard. Justice’s mom thought it had to be coming from the television waiting room.

The kitten had to be taken back home. But, The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio decided to make sure Justice had a kitten while she was recovering in the hospital. So a plush kitten was found and presented to her when she woke up from surgery.
