A tiny kitten who was spotted outside abandoned, shows so much strength. Now, she has a cat to watch her grow.
Earlier this month, a calico kitten was spotted outside with a wound on one of her legs. She was immediately rushed to ACCT Philly for help.
“She was found abandoned in a box in North Philadelphia, and a Good Samaritan dropped her off at the shelter. It was obvious that there was something wrong with her right hind foot,” Erica, a veterinary technician at ACCT Philly, shared with us.
After cleaning and treating the wound, the kitten was ready to start her healing process. “She needed somewhere to go, so I took her home to foster.”
The kitten with the perfectly split markings on her face was lovingly named Phoebe. She was provided with a comfortable nest and plenty of soft bedding to knead on. She tucked herself under a blanket and blissfully started making “biscuits”.
In no time, her walls came falling down, and she began to demand attention from her foster mom.
Every time Erica came to tend to her, Phoebe would cry for her attention and wouldn’t take no for an answer. Despite having a bum leg, she was always on the move, and nothing seemed to ever slow her down.
Phoebe was eating slurry on her own and taking meds like a champ.
She put on weight steadily each day, and her energy quickly doubled.
The mischievous calico managed to escape her nursery one day, and figured out a way to climb onto the couch. She was persistent and repeated the escapade after being placed back into the pen.
Forest showers his new baby with snuggles and keeps her clean from head to toe. Phoebe is so much more content now that she has a real cuddle-buddy who makes her feel loved.
