A national park ranger in Sydney, Australia, found this kitten crawling through the grass all alone. The friendly baby was very hungry and was squeaking loudly. His mother and other kittens weren’t around, so the man decided to help the baby. The man contacted the CatRescue 901 Animal Rescue Center, whose staff immediately went out to pick up the kitten.
He was picked up by a volunteer named Jenny. The kitten was about three weeks old, but not up to the weight standard for that age.
The kitten was named Gordon. Jenny took him to a holding facility and began feeding him by the hour. The tiny cat quickly became accustomed to the new environment and was very loving and grateful. Everyone in the woman’s family took turns taking care of him.
“As soon as I had him home and fed, it was very clear he had been abandoned, despite only being three weeks old. He was friendly and not remotely scared.”
After each feeding, Gordon curled up in the arms of the family and purred loudly. He was most fond of his caretaker’s husband – he was always reaching out to him and asking for affection. Gordon grew up curious and affectionate. Kitten quickly learned to use the litter box, and then switched to solid food. When he learned to walk confidently, he began to explore every corner.
“Gordon is the cutest little guy who loves sleeping in my husband’s arm when he is tired,” Jenny shared with Love Meow.
When the baby grows up a little more, permanent owners will be found for him.
