A Family Rescues A one Day Old Kitten That Was Crying In The Middle Of The Road
Kind individuals listening at home two and a half months ago noticed what sounded like a cat crying outside and went in search of the source of the sound. A tiny kitten the size of a finger was laying alone on the street, much to their astonishment.
The mother cat never came back for her young after they waited all night. Less than a day born, the black-and-white infant was not given regular nourishment. A foster volunteer from Saving One Life named Caroline Grace replied when people requested help.
Caroline affectionately named this miracle Theodore. He had problems with nutrition – at first he could not swallow formula milk. Caroline fed him through a tube every couple of hours, which brought the little organism back to life.
The next day, Theo cheered up, with newfound strength, he firmly grabbed the nipple and began to eat so that it crackled behind his ears. He called his adoptive mother to shout and always thought that food delivery could work faster.
As soon as Caroline opened the incubator door, “he started yelling at me, and so on until I filled his mouth with a bottle,” Caroline recalls. At only 87 grams, he swiftly developed into the strongest and most ravenous kitten I had ever seen.
Theo learnt to purr at the age of three days and did so whenever he was touched. Even though he was still only a newborn, he already shown great struggle and a constant need for love.
“Every time I picked him up, he immediately began to purr. And the same thing is happening today, when he is two and a half months old! He purrs when you touch him, likes to be picked up, and he could nuzzle you in the crook of your neck with a loud purr, ”says Caroline.
Theo was very active, even before his eyes were open. After each feeding, he crawled around the incubator, developing limbs for the coming sleep
It’s incredible how much power a strong mur-motor can pack into such a crumb! Following a meal, the kitty asked to be rocked and cuddled like a kid and in return purred loudly.
Each kitten develops slightly differently, and occasionally there are kittens like Theo who, for various reasons, slow down before a certain barrier. He’s merely a unique youngster who developed slowly.
Moving to a superior room with a spacious playpen, he plunged headlong into research, running around his new possessions and examining every centimeter.
Becoming more playful and inquisitive, Theo also grew up and learned to better control his body. He was indescribably delighted when he first saw the tunnel – he ran through it as fast as he could, and rolled it, jumping onto the walls.
Theo has an undeniable love for life. He enjoys running through the tunnel, chasing toys, and scaling the cat’s play structure. But being among people and cuddling are what he enjoys doing the most, explains Caroline.
“When you arrive home, he is the first to greet you at the door. He suddenly leaps into your arms and gives you a nose kiss.
Black and white kitten wants to be always in the spotlight. He crawls on the arms or balances on a person’s shoulder like a parrot, and all this to the loud accompaniment of his purr.
At foster care, Theo made friends with other adoptees, shared cat secrets with them and joined forces to destroy the house together.
There is no denying Theo’s love of life. He enjoys chasing toys, sprinting down the tunnel, and scaling the cat’s play structure. However, Caroline explains that his favorite things are people and cuddling.
“He is the first person to greet you when you arrive home. He suddenly leans over and leaps into your arms, kissing you on the nose.
“Theo came to me as a newborn lump. I love him with all my heart and I’m proud of how far he’s come,” says Caroline.
“Whoever adopts this embodied grace will fill his life with laughter, hugs and purrs.”
