It’s hard to believe that some people will completely abandon an animal and leave them to die, but atiny tabby kitten weighing less than a pound was found huddling with her siblings in a cardboard box amongst garbage.
A social worker called in that five young kittens had been abandoned by their mother, and while a NYC-based animal rescue group did their best, two couldn’t be saved.
But rescuers gave the hungry survivors formula immediately after they got them.
Joanne, a caring foster mom, took them into her loving home and began around-the-clock care. And at five weeks, one they called Emma was just the weight of a two week old kitten.
Even though Joanne carefully tended to the young kittens, and took them back and forth to Little Wanderers resident veterinary practice, Emma’s siblings passed away within a week of rescue.
And Emma had to be hospitalized for a month in the ICU at City Vet Care where she was fighting for her life.
That little fur ball was so determined to live that she eventually pulled through and made a full recovery, which was nothing short of a miracle.
Now all Emma needed to find her forever home, and they knew the little kitten wanted a feline friend to play with.
Meanwhile, Erin was looking to adopt a kitten so her cat Nimbus could have a friend to play with, and that’s when she learned about Emma.
“I teared up when they sent me her vet documents…I couldn’t say no,” Erin said.
She joined her new family and quickly made her way into her human’s arms.
In the weeks that followed, her personality began to show through, andshe no longer looked like the same kitten that they found inthe garbage.
