This is the tale of how an 11-year-old child rescued a little kitty and provided her with the home she urgently required.
The kitten was in need of a foster home, and animal rights activists had already informed the young cat. Alyssa Smith, co-founder of the animal rights non-profit, mentions, “The youngster was incredibly tiny. He’s likely around four weeks old, but his size is comparable to that of a one-week-old.”
The unfortunate kitty was in a dire state when rescued, only half the size it should have been. However, it was incredibly adorable and affectionate.
An 11-year-old boy and his mother volunteered to provide foster care. It wasn’t until they cradled the kitten in their hands that they truly grasped its minuscule size.
The boy’s mother mentioned, “He weighed just 240 grams, half the size he should have been, and his fur was a bit matted.” She and her son decided to name him ‘Fluffy,’ drawing inspiration from a mouse due to his striking resemblance.
They were compassionate enough to provide the pocket kitty with a gentle bath and took turns feeding him every couple of hours.
Fluffy adores leaping onto humans’ shoulders and purring, emitting a volume surprisingly loud for his size.
“He enjoys perching on my shoulder and surveying his surroundings,” mentioned Erin, the mother.
“When he’s not napping, cuddling, or eating, he perches on someone’s shoulder and seems to be the master of the situation.”
Once the kitten found its family, with love, attention, and nurturing care, it finally started to gain some weight.
Despite his petite size, he compensates with a lively personality. The moment he figured out how to use his four legs, he started running and jumping with excitement.
“All he wants is to dart across the shoulder beside him. What more do you need than his purrs and affection?” Erin remarks.
“He’s a true treasure, and we believe that with time, he’ll blossom into a beautiful diamond,” says the mother.
Erin adds, “He loves spending time with our adopted kittens and appears to relish taking care of them.”
