After obtaining permission from the owners, the kindhearted volunteers took all five kittens to the rescue, bringing immense joy to the owners. Upon arrival, the smallest of the bunch, a 5-6 week old kitten who was paralyzed, was weighed and found to be only nine ounces. Despite her tiny size, she had a hearty appetite and eagerly consumed wet food and kMR slurry. The team quickly found a foster mom for the kitten, and Kacy, one of the volunteers, generously offered to provide care for her. The little feline was affectionately named Dumpling and soon found herself in the warm embrace of her new foster family.
The next day, Dumpling received a visit to the veterinarian and was discovered to have some slight reflexive movements in her hind legs. The primary focus was on relieving the irritation around her backside, which was causing her discomfort. Thankfully, over the following days, Dumpling showed improvement in terms of recuperating her health. Her preferred food choices included kMR and a unique blend of wet food.
It’s been almost two weeks since we rescued the adorable little Dumpling, who was just a tiny 1lb and 3 ounces when we first found her. She’s doing much better now and has been exploring our home on her handmade diaper. However, she’s also causing some mischief by chewing on the paper towel roll and trying to get into everything.
Dumpling’s growth has been impressive lately. She’s been enjoying life to the fullest by steadily gaining weight and indulging in all the luxuries. Kacy shares that Dumpling still loves her kitten milk, enjoys chewing on anything she can find, watches the bigger cats from her cozy studio apartment, and takes on the notorious paper towel monster.
