A tiny kitten was brought to a vet clinic by a guy who found her while he was working on a big rig truck. When an employee at the vets found out that the shelter might put the kitten to sleep, she took matters into her own hands. “I couldn’t handle that so I took her home with me,” she wrote on imgur.

Edie the kitten was only a few days old, when she was rescued. “We estimated her to be between 3-7 days old… She was so tiny she fit in the palm of my hand. We called a shelter to come get her but they said because she was so young they would just put her to sleep.” She refused to let that happen, so brought the tiny one home to foster.

“(The kitten) had to be fed every 2 hours round the clock for the first week and a half.” When the kitten’s eyes finally opened, all the hard work and sleepless nights just seemed so worth it.
