A kitten who was weary of living in the outdoors, was thrilled to be inside one day. She couldn’t stop having fun.
When Nikki Martinez, an animal rescuer based in Las Vegas, came across a pitiful, sickly kitten, she knew she had to help. The kitten was living on the streets in a feral cat colony until she was secured by a fellow rescuer, David.
She was just skin and bones, weighing less than two pounds. Her nose was stuffy, and she was so tired that she could barely keep her eyes open.
Nikki noticed her right away after she was rescued and offered to take her in to care for her. “She was very sick with an upper respiratory infection,” Nikki told us.
The kitten was lovingly named Jordi-Lee. She was placed in a comfy space with lots of blankets and good food. With proper medical care and plenty of TLC, she was on the mend.
David not only made sure that Jordi was safe, but also “spayed and neutered the entire colony to prevent more kittens from suffering on the streets.”
In just 24 hours, Jordi could see a lot clearer and breathe much easier. With her improved appetite, came new-found strength. After a few days of healing, her kitty cold cleared up, and her energy level soared.
As soon as Jordi felt pep under her paws, she started to play and have fun.
Jordi was fearless and friendly, so when she met the resident pup, Bradley, she was immediately intrigued and greeted her with her puffy tail, big hops and side strides.
“She’s a sweet, independent little lady who gets along with cats, dogs and people. She knows how to keep herself busy.”
Jordi became a ball of unbridled energy and was constantly on the lookout for fun things to do.
Whenever she stumbled upon a new toy, she would make the best of it by playing to her heart’s content. No toy was left untouched under her watch.
Jordi spent almost every second of her waking hours playing and creating mischief. “It’s zoomies and playtime 24/7. I think she’d do great with a friendly dog or cat companion. She’s such a fun little kitty.”
