Say hello to Milo!

This black furry baby was found all alone, barely clinging to life, when he was just 1 day old.

His mother was nowhere to be found. Being helplessly small and vulnerable, his prospects looked grim, he almost got euthanized!

Recognizing the urgency of his situation, the dedicated volunteers of Chatons Orphelins Montreal swiftly answered the plea for assistance. 

With their quick action, he was safely transported into their care where he was given a name that suited his delicate stature - Milo.

He was like a tiny little mouse, weighing just 3.5 ounces! His fur was matted and covered with dirt.

Despite the challenging circumstances, Milo exhibited a remarkable resilience and an unwavering determination to survive.

The rescue team provided him with warmth from a heat source before feedinging him. His hunger was evident as he eagerly consumed his first bottle.

In just two days, Milo gained an impressive 35 grams, transforming into a round-bellied bundle of cuteness.

Developing a strong bond with his foster mom, Milena, who tirelessly fed him every two hours, Milo received the care he needed to thrive.

With each passing day, Milo's growth and vitality continued to impress.

He achieved one milestone after another, mastering the art of eating from a dish and using the litter box  all on his own.

As Milo grew bigger and more adventurous, his playful and curious nature blossomed. He reveled in exploring his surroundings, displaying a remarkable energy that filled the room.

Climbing atop his pillow fort, he fearlessly pounced on imaginary prey, delighting in every moment of his feline adventures.

When exhaustion eventually set in, Milo would head to a comforting lap for a nap.

Affectionate, playful, and sociable, Milo sought constant attention and loved getting cuddles.

Wherever his human companions ventured, he faithfully followed, often assuming the role of an indispensable office assistant, attentively observing their work at the computer.

His contentment was obvious to all as his purr resonated loudly whenever he was held close.

Embracing the boisterous nature of kittenhood, Milo unveiled a surprising talent for fetching.

Engaging in playful treasure hunts, he proudly paraded his findings, whether toys, cloth, or other odds and ends, gifting them as tokens of his affection to his beloved foster mom.

Never straying far from his foster family, Milo would voice his desire for companionship with soft meows, seeking out their presence.

He found solace in napping on their laps and necks, cherishing the warmth and closeness they provided.

At the age of four months, Milo graduated from foster care and embarked on a new chapter in his life - a forever home with a family that fulfilled his every longing. 

He now relishes in the constant cuddles and affection bestowed upon him, never failing to demonstrate his gratitude by continuing to shower his loved ones with gifts at their feet.
