Kind individuals sitting at home two and a half months ago heard what sounded like a cat whimpering outdoors and went outside to investigate. A lone cat the size of a finger was lying on the street, much to their surprise.
They waited all night for the mother cat to return with her baby, but she never did. The black-and-white infant was only a day old at the time, and he didn’t have access to ordinary feeding… People called for assistance, and Caroline Grace of Saving One Life, an overexposure volunteer, stepped in.
“He was extremely little and chilly when I took him up, but he had a mischievous and fiery attitude from the start,” Caroline explains.
Caroline affectionately named this miracle Theodore. He had problems with nutrition – at first he could not swallow formula milk. Caroline fed him through a tube every couple of hours, which brought the little organism back to life.
The next day, Theo cheered up, with newfound strength, he firmly grabbed the nipple and began to eat so that it crackled behind his ears. He called his adoptive mother to shout and always thought that food delivery could work faster.
Caroline explains, “As soon as I opened the incubator door, he started shouting at me, and so on until I filled his mouth with a bottle.” “At only 87 grams in weight, he quickly became the strongest and most insatiable little kitten I’d ever seen.”
Theo learned to purr at the age of three days and did so anytime he was stroked. Even though he was still the size of a baby, he already struggled and sought affection.
