Baby was abandoned as a kitten but luckily was found by a loving man when he heard her meowing in his backyard.
He said he found this little orphaned kitten in a hole under the back fence.
Apparently she was the runt of the litter and had probably been abandoned when the mother cat and her siblings had moved on.
When the man heard Baby’s lonely cries, he tore down his rock wall to save her.
He then started giving the tiny orphaned kitten round-the-clock care, which meant bottle feeding her every 2 1/2 hours.
On the 11th day she finally opened her eyes.
With lots of love and attention she was now walking and exploring her new surroundings.
She was no longer an orphaned kitten, she had a new family and a new home.
She soon discovered that she loved laying around in the sun...even though she was still only the size of a small sock!
As the weeks went by, this little kitty was now completely in love with the big man that saved her life.
Here she is trying wet food for the first time.
She shows her appreciation by snuggling on his shoulder for her cosy, daily naps.
Whenever she sees her human dad lay down, she’s right on his belly demanding love and cuddles.
Baby loves sleeping on his lap...
And on his shoulder...
In fact, she just loves to sleep close to her human.
With a little bit of TLC from a young kindhearted man, this once orphaned kitten blossomed into a beautiful, affectionate cat.
And even though her dad said he never really wanted a pet, he’s extremely thankful he found her.
She still loves to bathe in the sun...
And has grown to love watching the world go by through the window.
And like most kitties of her age she's very playful.
But of course her favorite thing is basking in the sun.
He loves the newest member of his family very much - and Baby says the feeling is mutual!
What a lovely rescue story with a happy ending.
