Residents of the United States noticed this fluffy little lump when he ran across the road and hid in the rocks. Concerned for the little guy, kind people decided to save him. To get him out safely, they called the rescue center for help.
“He weighed in at a tiny 225 grams at about six weeks of age. After searching around that night and later the next day, she found no siblings,” Best Friends Felines shared with Love Meow. “The little man was alone, scared, and starving.”
The Best Friends Felines shelter volunteer immediately came to help. She helped get the kitten out safely – he was fine, but he was flea-covered and skinny. He weighed only 225 grams.
The volunteer left the kitten at the shelter, and she went to look for its mother or other kittens. Unfortunately, she never found one. In the meantime, the redhead was named Mufasa, and they began to actively care for him.
A veterinary nurse volunteered to take the kitten to her house. She fed him by the hour, took him to work with her, and took care of him in every way. Mufasa responded with incredible love and gratitude.
After this care Mufasa quickly became lively – he began to play, explore his foster’s house, and take an interest in everything around him. He developed a good appetite and gained weight quickly.
“He loves to play and adores his snuggles. He gets on great with his younger foster siblings who are still bigger than him.”
His favorite pastime became lying in his foster’s arms or in her scarf, purring loudly, and playing with the other kittens in his spare time. He turned out to be a very sweet, friendly, and playful boy.
Since Mufasa was found, he has tripled in weight, which was a big win. He is now enjoying life waiting for better owners, whom they have already started looking for.
“We are so proud of this little man and how far he has come with the dedication of his foster mom.”
