Discovering yourself isolated as a tiny kitten who’s only been alive for a few weeks can be a frightening experience. In Houston, Texas, a gracious woman rescued a lovely white kitten just in time. This little male kitten, named Snowy, patiently waited for someone to notice him in his new environment, but he was too weak to move and desperately needed help.
While browsing through my Facebook feed, I stumbled upon Snowy’s incredible tale of survival. Intrigued, I contacted my Facebook pal, Jane, and requested permission to share it with others. As devoted feline enthusiasts, we understand all too well how frequently stories like Snowy’s arise, where vulnerable young kittens come across loving humans who will go above and beyond for them.
Do you mind sharing how you came across Snowy?
Well, one day while I was heading to work and walking down the stairs, I stumbled upon the cutest sight. Snowy, a white furball, was lying on the fourth step. He was so motionless that he either seemed petrified or drained from extreme hunger and thirst.
Can you estimate how old Snowy might be?
Based on my experience with pets, I would say that Snowy is approximately four to six weeks old.
How is his health doing?
Despite being malnourished and skinny due to living outside, he is surprisingly alive and healthy. However, he needs to gain some weight as he is severely underweight. To help him put on some pounds, I am feeding him wet food using my finger and also carefully force-feeding him. Although the kitten may be eating a bit on his own, I ensure that he gets enough nourishment every day. Fortunately, he is gaining more energy with each passing day, and it’s truly a blessing to have him in my life. I’m grateful that he came into my life as a gift from above.
Is Snowy starting to feel more comfortable around you? It seemed like the poor thing was really scared when you first got him.
Well, I’m happy to say that he’s slowly coming out of his shell. He’s actually quite sweet and even meows at the other cats when they’re nearby. Plus, he loves to purr a lot. Speaking of Snowy, I’ve decided that I’m probably going to keep him. I might even change his name to Frankie because of his mesmerizing blue eyes, just like Frank Sinatra, the famous ‘Ol’ Blue Eyes.’ Of course, I’ll wait until Thursday when he goes to the vet to confirm that he’s a boy. (After some thought, I did end up sticking with the name Snowy!)
Does Snowy have any furry friends to keep him company and play with?
Snowy has two housemates, TobyMac, a two-year-old Tuxedo cat who was adopted from the SPCA two years ago, and Sagebrush, an 18-month-old tortoiseshell cat who was also adopted from the SPCA in June 2020.
What makes Snowy unique and special?
Currently, Snowy’s exceptional quality is his passive and sweet nature. He possesses an excellent temperament that makes him a great companion.
I want to express my gratitude to Jane for granting me permission to share Snowy’s story with the readers of Cattitude Daily. Let’s wish Jane and Snowy a happy and fulfilling life together.
