A kitty with big, pleading eyes was spotted in the street all alone. There was no one near it, and it was learning to live by picking up scraps from the back alleys. The kitty never dreamed of finding a home…
This kitten was found on the streets of Melbourne, Australia, when it was just five weeks old. Its thick, fluffy fur hid its scrawny body – it was very hungry and dehydrated. There was no mother or other kittens near the baby.
Luckily, the kitten was spotted by people who cared. They reported it to a rescue centre and a volunteer called Amber immediately took it in. It was very fragile, shy, and afraid of everything around it, but the centre staff did everything they could to make it feel comfortable.
The kitty was named Sprout. Sprout needed supportive care as it was very weak and the staff started to give it medication. Amber stayed by Sprout’s side for days and nights to keep an eye on it.
Sprout quickly showed what a fighter it is. It patiently tolerated all treatments and it trusted its guardian. The kitty ate with an excellent appetite and soon began to gain weight actively and with it its energy.
Kitty was very fond of petting and began to ask the guardian frequently for petting. The kitten has become more and more curious, exploring Amber’s home more and more each day. The kitten also made friends with the other kittens at the shelter and became their ringleader.
In a short time, this beauty has transformed from a battered, weak kitten to an active, business-minded madam. They will soon be looking for permanent owners for this little girl. We wish Sprout the best loving home!
