A HOMELESS KITTEN WINS THE HEART OF A FAMILY AND BECOMES THE BELOVED CAT OF THE HOUSE.
A mother cat who abandons her kittens is a common phenomenon, but one that is difficult to understand. Although these little creatures are good mothers by nature, they sometimes seem to ignore one or more of their young kittens.
This is due to a variety of factors, including physical abuse by the mother or her offspring, a lack of knowledge about how to care for or feed them, which leads her to choose to abandon them, or she will simply follow her instincts in the event of a large litter and save the ones she considers strongest.
Unfortunately, there will always be a distressed kitten in this circumstance who will need help to live.
Millie, a beautiful cat abandoned on a farm and rescued by a couple who were lucky enough to hear her frantic little meows, is the subject of this story.
Kyle, a farmer from Indiana, and his partner Claire were tasked with rescuing the kitten. When the little ball of fur noticed them, she cautiously approached them, asking for help, which the couple was willing to do.
Since he was so small, Kyle and Claire decided to wait a bit in hopes that the mother cat would arrive, but she didn’t seem to be interested in the baby.
The cat had been abandoned, and she begged them to bring her home with her soft eyes. Claire had this to say about it:
“She was shaking as she walked toward us, and she kept following us.”
They wrapped the cat in a towel and very carefully transported her to the vet; the kitten kept purring as she cuddled her new parents during the ride. She immediately proved to be a very affectionate kitten.
After a thorough examination, the vet decided that she was about three weeks old, in good condition, and should be bottle-fed and closely monitored for the next few weeks.
Adopting a kitten or young kitten is a big commitment; it takes a lot of time and money to keep them alive.
Before you take the plunge, keep in mind that during its first few weeks of life, a young kitten feeds every 2 to 3 hours. Claire and Kyle realized this and agreed to take turns keeping the kitten.
For the first few days, the kitten did nothing but sleep, spending most of his time snuggled in his parents’ arms.
With each passing day, both parents became more and more convinced that the best they could do was to give her another chance. The kitty continued to capture their hearts; she was the perfect fluffy, spoiled family member.
Millie wasn’t the only pet in the house; she also had a dog named Sadie and a puppy named Boone to play with.
Although the couple was initially concerned that the three creatures would not get along, they happily got along just fine from the first day they met.
Millie, who was only a few weeks old at the time, played with Sadie.
Millie became a little sister to protect, and the rambunctious Boone became a new adventure companion for Sadie. They all enjoy spending time together and being the center of their parent’s attention.
Many months have passed since the little kitten was rescued, and he has grown into an adorable kitten who loves to scamper, climb and play with everything in his environment.
Claire describes her as a “whirlwind of vitality.”
The kitten has had a terrible past, but now has a new existence with people who have always been willing to help her.
There is no doubt that the kitten has chosen them as his family, and they are delighted to have him in their midst.
“Millie gets into all kinds of situations, but we love her. She reminds us how lucky we are to have her when she calms down and gets cute. “She’s made her way into our hearts and homes,” Claire explains.
