Tiny Day Old Rescue Kitty Nursed Back to Health

A tiny kitty’s cries alarmed Kalysta and her brother from outside their home. He was only a few days old. They brought him into their house and the rest is history.

Kalysta wrote on her tumblr: “Me and my brother found this kitten out behind our house crying at 2 am, i couldn’t leave him there alone and cold so i took him in and put him next to some warmed up pop bottles full of water.. At that point, i didn’t know what to do with him or if he was even going to live.. BUT, we’ve come a long ways.. I started bottle feeding him every 2 hours, day and night, i’d also have to help him go to the bathroom because he couldn’t go on his own. I even brought him to school with me everyday (I go to an alternative school, so i was allowed to). I did this for months, until he could finally eat wet cat food and go to the bathroom on his own… I love this baby so much and i know he loves me too. I don’t know what i’d do without him. The pictures just show how much he has grown and changed.”

Finally safe and warm

    Congrat., Kalysta, the kitty has grown up into a precious little thing. Cats are a wonder of Nature, can’t imagine a world without them. I hope you have a long, happy life with your kitty!

    Kalysta, such a heartwarming story and you told it so well! Having a cat that you rescued and mothered is a special experience and connection that the both of you will enjoy forever. Bless you and props to your high school for letting you bring a kitten to your classes. All high schools ought to be this adaptive!

    Beautiful kitty is lucky to have you!

  18. What a lovely job you did being a foster parent. I too have hand raised an abandoned kitten from 3 days old.. He is the most affectionate of all my cats now. Just a bundle of joy always. :) Bless you for your loving heart and I hope you always have room in there for your kitten.
