Pint sized kitten made her dream come true with new sisters after being discovered outdoors alone
A little kitten had made her dream come true with new sisters after she was found outside alone.
A North Carolina resident found a small cream-colored calico outside his home. The mother cat never returned for her baby after many hours of waiting. The kind person brought her in and kept her safe and alive overnight. He reached out to his local rescue center, Sparkle Cat Rescue (in Burlington, North Caroline) because the kitten needed more care than he could afford.
Sarah Kelly, a volunteer rescue worker, was quick to respond. The kitten had a serious eye infection and needed immediate medical attention. Sarah dropped everything and hurried to pick her up. As soon as she had the kitten safely in her car, the tiny bundle of fluff began purring and kneading with her tiny front paws.
With the right medication and bottle feeding around the clock, the kitten began to improve. A few days later, her eyes cleared and her appetite increased.
The kitten was an avid kneader from the start and happily waved its paws when someone was around. She was aptly named Julia after Julia Child.
"She continued to do well, making cookies and meow," shared Sarah Love Meow. "She's sassy and incredibly cute. She loves her kitten formula almost as much as she loves cookies."
The kitten was eager for attention and a constant mate to keep company. After every meal, she snuggled up to her teddy bear in her cozy incubator and began kneading and purring as if she were with her mother.
Tiny singletons like Julia can benefit from having another kitten to play with as it helps them develop, socialize, and fight loneliness.
Sarah knew exactly the perfect pair of friends to introduce her to.
Before Juliet's arrival, two calico sisters came to Sarah's home to allow themselves a better life. They were discovered by the roadside in poor condition.
"They were found together without a mother," added Sarah. "These sisters were about to rise, had never been with their mother and so frail and small."
With careful grooming, the kittens Soleil and Luna perked up and gained weight.
While Luna recovered, her sister stayed by her side the whole time and cheered her on. "Soleil was very protective and comforting to her sister. She slept on her or with one paw on her."
When Julia was ready to meet other carers, Sarah placed her in the same playpen with the calico sisters. After a few sniffs and showing off their cheeky demeanor, the kittens quickly got along.
Tiny cream colored calico may be the smallest of the three, but she has a powerful personality.
The two sisters took the little newcomer under their wing and showed her her scratching post and toys.
Julia was thrilled to find other kittens who share the same passion for kneading and happy to have real snuggly friends to sleep on.
Julia blossoms with friends to play and cuddle with. She no longer feels lonely and learns new skills from the other kittens like a champion.
Although a little tiny, she can really hold her own when playing with larger kittens.
Luna and Soleil adore their little sister from another gentleman. Together they are an adorable, cheeky calico trio.
Julia looks up to her foster sisters and tries to keep up with them as they play. She learns to do a little mischief.
The cute kitten continues to spread joy with her little kneading paws and is so happy to share her journey with her purring friends.
