A tiny kitten wandered in a yard looking for help, and turned her life around. Along the way, she befriended another cat just like her.

Last month, a Good Samaritan from Florida heard what sounded like a kitten crying outside in their yard. Upon investigation, they found a tiny 2-week-old calico all alone, screaming for her mother.

Hoping that the cat mom would return, they waited for 24 hours, but it was to no avail. The kitten continued to cry and there was still no sign of the mother, so they reached out to the rescue community for assistance.

Nadija, a foster carer based in Tampa, Florida, was contacted about the calico and didn’t hesitate to take her. “She was extremely hungry and crying her little lungs out. I just couldn’t say no,” Nadija shared with Love Meow.

“She was two weeks old, weighing seven ounces and pretty fragile. The first 48 hours were tough as she was not latching very well to the bottle, which means she was not getting enough milk and had an upset tummy—this is never good with a tiny kitten.”

They named the calico Sienna and immediately started her on medication and round-the-clock intensive care.

After frequent feedings, supportive care and lots of patience, Sienna perked up, got the hang of the bottle, and started making good gains.

She was so grateful for being catered to, and would rumble with her adorable purrs at each feeding.

Nadija gave Sienna a cuddle toy (as a faux mama) to keep her company, so she wouldn’t feel lonely.

As soon as the foster mom entered the room with a bottle, Sienna got up from the comfort of her nest. She watched her human intently and tilted her head curiously, as she prepared the food.

“She was always sweet, purring, snuggling and curious,” Nadija told Love Meow.

Around that time, Nadija received another singleton, Miles, who was two weeks old, rescued from the county shelter. Both kittens were orphans, close in age, and both were in need of a friend.
