A Las Vegas resident spotted two tiny kittens in the bushes near her home. The kittens probably lost their mother or she left them behind, so the hungry kittens squeaked and didn’t know where to go.
The woman tried to look for or wait for the mother cat to return, but she never showed up. Then she immediately contacted the rescuers. A volunteer named Patricia responded to the request. She immediately took the babies to her place to save them.
The kittens turned out to be brothers, and one was half the size of the other. Patricia placed both kittens in an incubator to maintain optimal body temperature and began feeding them through a tube at regular intervals. The older kitten always snuggled up to the younger one, trying to soothe and protect him.
“Alexander was a normal baby who was a little underweight, but his brother Liam was a tiny preemie at only 40 grams. He was not fully developed.”
Unfortunately, despite the caregiver’s best efforts, the younger sibling lost the battle for life. The older kitten, who was nicknamed Alexander, became the surviving one. Patricia did everything in her power to make sure that the baby got well and grew up healthy as quickly as possible.
“He was gaining weight as he should and just started growing into a healthy chubby boy,” Patricia told Love Meow.
Brave Alexander turned out to be a fighter – he made small victories every day and pleased his caregiver with his progress. He was actively gaining weight, started exploring his incubator, and thanked his caregiver for food with a purr. These were already positive signals!
Then Alexander learned to walk, climb on the surface, and even get up on his hind legs. He makes it a point to watch the other kittens in the room from his incubator.
“He really has a deep bond with me because I’m all he knows from birth. I love when he looks at me like I’m his mama — it melts my heart to pieces. He loves to cuddle in my arms,” Patricia shared with Love Meow.”He is curious and loves standing up in the incubator and watching the kittens in my room. He wants to join them but he’s still too small.”
This brave boy recently turned one month old. He is still small for his age due to being developmentally delayed, but he has a big and bright future! The caregiver already knows for sure that this little guy will grow up to be strong and active, just a little later than the others.
When this baby is old enough, they will find permanent owners for him. Thank you to the kind people for rescuing him!
“Fostering these most vulnerable babies can be heartbreaking at times, but there are also times like these that bring you so much happiness,” Patricia told Love Meow. “There will be so many more happy loving endings, and that’s what keeps me going. Alexander is proof of that.”
