Meet Colin the runt of his litter orphaned when they were three days old. He is much smaller than his age, but what he lacks in size, he makes up with his personality!

“He is the sweetest little guy,” said Amy Bender, fosterer of Central Oklahoma Humane Society and pet mom of Sauerkraut the cat.

“Colin and his three siblings came to us as foster kittens through Central Oklahoma Humane Society. Their mother rejected them at three days old, so we have been bottle raising them.

Colin is the ‘runt’ of the group, and my personal favorite (shhhh, don’t tell the other kittens). He’s about five weeks old, but developmentally he’s closer to three and a half weeks. I’m hoping he’ll ‘catch up’ once he’s weaned, but even if he doesn’t, he’s still special.”

Little Colin and his siblings will be available for adoption, once they are big enough.

“Colin loves snuggling and play fighting with his sister Enya, though most of the time he bites off way more than he can chew!”

Meet Eeyore, a small miracle kitty.

He is a shelter, throw away kitty turned in to the Montgomery County Animal Shelter, along with his cat mother and four siblings.

Here’s Eeyore’s story via his Facebook page: “I’m a small miracle. I wasn’t even 4 oz when Mom brought me home from work. My brothers were much larger and still are. I’m what they call, ‘the runt’. We all did fine for the first week… but one morning, Mom woke up, started her routine and came to check on us. I was on my side, seizing and barely breathing. I was almost gone.

Being so small, Mom didnt have much hope but tried everything she could: fluids, karo syrup and wrapping me in a heated towel and carrying me around. She was weary and expected me to be gone when she unwrapped the towel… BUT to her surprise, I popped up!

I had a severe hookworm infestation and it took a toll on me..I crashed 3 more times. Mom carried me everywhere, giving me fluids, special kitty milk, keeping me warm… you name it… every hour for a week. It was very touch and go, but a week later, things seemed to be turning in a positive direction.

That was the beginning of November and here I am. I am about 8-9 weeks old now and getting stronger everyday. I weigh 1.2 lbs and do almost everything a normal kitten does. That’s why Mom makes such a big deal about ‘my firsts’ and everything I do.

I’m what she calls, a Christmas miracle, and for that, I am grateful. I have been given a second chance and my goal is to bring joy and smiles to everyone I meet!”

Being so small, Eeyore fought hard to live and his family was there every step of the way to bring him back to health.
