For a motherless kitten, the chances of survival are extremely low. That’s what Harvey went through, but he was picked up just in time.
Sara Kelly is the founder of the Murphy’s Law Animal Rescue Association, based in Greensboro, North Carolina (Eastern US). In mid-October, she learned that a very young orphan kitten had just been found with a tenant. The latter heard in the middle of the night what she thought was a bird in distress. As she went to look into her garden, she realized that it was actually a small cat that kept meowing.
The young feline was completely alone. Despite searches, his mother was never found. Sarah Kelly welcomed him into her home the next morning. She named him Harvey. With the help of volunteers, she cleaned and treated the eyes, which were so infected that the kitten could not open them. After 24 hours, he could see again without difficulty.
Sarah Kelly placed him in an incubator to maintain his body temperature. As the days went by, Harvey began to show his sweet personality and remarkable determination.
The once suffering kitten is now healthy and happy!
The kitten grew up and was able to leave the incubator to find a corner specially equipped for her by a volunteer, with a convenient basket and an unlimited number of toys.
Harvey was also able to get to know the other small cats she adopts and quickly became friends.
A loving family has already been found for Harvey. Soon he will be ready to join her to start a new phase of his young life, which started so badly. Thanks to the man who discovered him in her house and Murphy’s Law animal rescue, his future looks bright.
