Starlight was found all alone on a footpath in the middle of summer when she was just a few days old.

She was badly sunburned and only weighed 85g, her foster mom was so worried.

But thanks to her amazing resilient spirit, a miracle happened!


The odds were against her from the start as she was really sunburnt. It was 38°C the day she was found!

She looked like a belly on legs, they were so skinny they resembled toothpicks.

Her foster mom was really worried. It was awful to see how red raw her skin looked, especially on her legs and paws.


The vet confirmed it was sunburn and every day she prayed for Starlight’s survival.

Every hour she fed and hydrated her and was worried about what she would see every time she entered the room.

But Starlight had an amazing resilient spirit so her foster mom did everything she could to help her survive.


It’s always a delight to see how cats and kittens “bounce back” from some truly dreadful situations.

Their will to live is so strong, they manage to overcome and cope with everything that life throws at them – and of course in particular this amazing little kitten.


Way to go Starlight!
