A kitten with a stubby leg runs around with his sister in bliss after they were given a chance at life.
Earlier this year, a Good Samaritan from Southern California discovered a litter of newborn kittens in her backyard. The cat mother left her three babies behind and didn’t come back to care for them.
The trio were cold and hungry, and the weather was too harsh for them to stay out any longer. “The finder brought them in and kept them warm,” Erin, a foster volunteer of Wrenn Rescues, shared with Love Meow.
With the help of volunteers, the kittens were safely transported into a foster home with Erin.
They were placed into an incubator to keep their body temperature regulated. Erin began round-the-clock feedings while she showered them with TLC.
After days of painstaking care, one of the kittens, Pancake, sadly didn’t make it. His siblings, Waffle and Toast, bounced back and started to put on weight.
“Waffle (black and white) was born missing his front leg but it never slowed him down,” Erin said.
