A tiny 5-week-old kitten was found wandering the streets as an orphan all alone. She had an upper respiratory infection, an upset stomach and was very timid.
A good Samaritan spotted the kitten in poor shape and they managed to bring her to safety and took her to the county shelter for help.
Nadija, a volunteer of AnimalLuvr’s Dream Rescue, saw a picture of the kitten and knew she had to help.
“Boo was very scared when she first arrived here and very unsure about me and her new space. She was meowing out of fear,” Nadija shared with Love Meow. “She got crusty eyes, nasal discharge, a dirty bum, and she was very hungry.”
Although very wary of humans, Boo couldn’t resist the offer of food and gradually resented his adoptive mother. She begins to accept being pampered because she realizes that people aren’t so bad.
After a few days of convalescence, rest and recuperation, Boo was cleansed, her expression was good and her eyes were brighter and clearer. Her fur becomes softer and more bouncy. And she looks so cute and lively, so much more confident.
“She is a sweet, snuggly, brave and playful kitten that ventures out into the rest of the house every day for a few hours before she runs back into her safe space which is my office,” Nadija told Love Meow.
Boo has discovered her favorite place to hang out – the big couch. She will hop on the couch to join her people, and pounce or roll around on their lap exerting unbridled energy.
She now zooms around the house without a care in the world, and plops down on a lap whenever she needs a nap.
