A little pint-sized kitten fought hard to live after he was rejected by his mom.
Two weeks ago, Beth Walden and her family were contacted about a tiny “runt” who was in urgent need of rescue. The 3-week-old kitten was just the size of a newborn and had been rejected by his cat mom.
He was just so tiny it was shocking.
The little feline couldn’t see due to an eye infection. At the time, they didn’t know if both of his eyes would be saved, but they were determined to help him heal.
After a couple of days, the kitten (named Guinness) figured out how to eat from a syringe and started to put on weight. That’s when they knew he was going to make it.
Beth was feeding him every hour around the clock, through many sleepless nights. Once his appetite improved, he tripled the amount of food intake.
Guinness is definitely a cuddler.
Over time, his eyes cleared up and recovered fully. He could finally open them wide and reveal just how gorgeous they were.
The tiny kitten continued to make strides every day, He’s been strong from the first day I had him.
Their resident dogs and cat have also taken to the little one, and will offer a helping paw whenever they get a chance.
Annie the dog came to give the kitten some much-needed TLC.
With his new-found energy, Guinness is starting to use his legs to walk and explore. He is curious about everything that moves but a total cuddle-bug with everyone, both human and furry kind.
His eyes are wide and bright, and his personality is shining through.
The little fighter has come a long way. He’s more than doubled his weight and is thriving every day.
His ears are growing right along with his belly.
Nothing makes Guinness happier than snuggling with his foster mom.
