Wally and Eva were discovered by a kind woman who had heard a meow coming from a trash bag. She entered and discovered three kittens huddled together.
They were taken to the Whitley County Humane Society by a caring woman. The other two were in bad health, and one of the three ceased trying to survive.
Barb offered to assist as a volunteer at the shelter. She was informed that the kittens might not make it when she went to pick them up. In an effort to preserve the infants’ lives, she carried them home.
Weak Wally, in any incomprehensible situation, clung to his stronger sister. “His eyes looked like he was about to give up. He did not meet my eyes, bowed his head low and cried in an unhappy, hoarse voice, Barb recalls. “We had to feed Wally through a straw because he didn’t drink from a bottle.”
Throughout the first week of their recovery, the kids did not leave each other a single step.
Wally was already able to consume some pureed beef from a spoon the next day, according to Barb.
Eva frequently purred and hugged her brother, seemingly trying to cheer him up, showing how protective she was of him. “Wally wouldn’t be here right now if it weren’t for Eve. She gave him a new lease of life.
For some time, the kittens were unable to walk normally and needed massage therapy to strengthen their limbs.
Once they were strong enough to explore their surroundings, Eve encouraged Wally to play and even run. Together they gained a lot of healthy weight and enough strength.
Multi-toed Wally surprised his doctor with an amazing will to live. She again became like a kitten, every day there was playfulness and mischief in him.
“Their eyes are now shining, their meow is no longer plaintive and hoarse, but sonorous and happy,” says Barb
