Have you ever compared the size of your hand’s palm to the size of a kitten’s? It is smaller than any other limb in the body, and despite the difficulty of believing it, the harsh existence that some vulnerable creatures endure causes them to have that proportion.
Thanks to a mission to manage the cat population, the Charles River Alleycats in Boston rescued a litter of kittens from a wild cat colony. They discovered a tabby cat that was unusually little among them.
Heather Fontaine-Doyle of Broken Tail Rescue, a completely volunteer-run animal rescue, jumped in to aid right away. Heather was taken aback when the orphan was presented to her. The little kitten was almost half the size of its siblings and resembled a small squirrel.
Pill Bug, the kitten, weighed just 250 grams at five weeks of age. Despite his little size, he had a fierce fighting spirit and attempted to accomplish everything his much larger littermates did.
His rescuers ruled out the possibility that he was younger than the other three kittens based on his teeth. It was small, with extremely short limbs.
The Pill Bug’s illness worsened a week after her foster journey, and she required a lot of supportive care. Heather stayed up all night with him, feeding him with a syringe, keeping him hydrated, and assuring him that he was loved.
Heather’s pussy began to mend after almost a week of caring for her. People, their toys, and the other cats in the neighborhood piqued his curiosity. Slowly but steadily, the tabby gained weight. Heather carried it with her wherever she went so that the kitten could be fed and cared for at all times.
