From Tiny to Terrific: The Heartwarming Friendship of a Kitten and a One-Eyed Cat

CatRescue 901 received a helpless little kitten who was in dire need of assistance. Dubbed as Flora by the volunteers, the kitten was so tiny that she could easily fit in one’s hand. Unfortunately, Flora did not have a mother to provide her with milk, making it even more challenging for her to survive. However, Katerina, a foster volunteer, took care of the kitten and provided round-the-clock intensive care. She even used her body to keep Flora warm and comfortable. Despite the challenges, Katerina was determined to help Flora live, especially since she only weighed 72 grams when she was born. Through her unwavering efforts, Flora managed to pull through, even though there were several close calls.

For a while, it was uncertain whether the kitten would make it, but her foster mother was resolute in nursing her back to good health. With tireless efforts and round-the-clock attention, the little feline began to show signs of improvement. According to Jenny Storaker, co-director of CatRescue 901, Flora was able to pull through thanks to the tremendous effort put in by her caregiver, Kat. Despite being a week old, Flora was still smaller than the average newborn kitten.

Kat’s resident feline, Sabrina, who was also rescued, provided the kitten with some much-needed care and affection. After every feeding, she would snuggle with the young feline and groom her. This greatly supported Flora’s growth and perseverance, as she felt like she had a mother. According to Jenny’s account, Sabrina’s presence played a significant role in the kitten’s well-being. Katerina also explained to Love Meow that at two weeks old, Flora’s size was comparable to that of a healthy two-day-old kitten. Although she was a week behind her expected weight at three weeks old, Katerina was relieved as she saw steady improvement in her weight gain.

As soon as the two youthful felines became accustomed to each other’s fragrance, they immediately bonded and developed a strong friendship. Even after Flora’s surgery, the dreaded cone-of-shame couldn’t prevent her from snuggling with her foster sibling and showing him affection.

The two furry creatures were always inseparable, often seen cuddled up and grooming each other. Their bond only grew stronger during their stay in foster care, and the rescue organization knew that they couldn’t separate the pair when it was time for them to find a permanent home.

These charming feline companions have matured into stunning cats. They are thoroughly enjoying their luxurious lifestyle and are overjoyed to have each other for eternity.
