These cute little tabby kittens have definitely come a long way from their unfortunate start on the streets of Kuwait where they were left to fend for themselves.
The Kuwait Animal Aid team rescued a group of sickly kittens who were extremely underweight and in poor health. Among them, one kitten had a congenital deformity that affected the right side of its face. The rescuers also discovered another littermate and immediately took all three to a foster home where they could receive constant care.
With unwavering determination, the rescue volunteers worked tirelessly to nurse the two sisters, Shiva (who has only one eye) and Vishnu, back to health, resulting in a noticeable improvement in their weight. However, the third kitten, Amani, contracted a viral infection and needed to be isolated and treated promptly. Despite being labeled as “unwanted,” the rescue team never gave up on these adorable felines.
Despite her physical imperfections, Shiva remains an active and playful feline. She may be missing one eye and have a cleft nose, but it doesn’t stop her from wrestling with her sister and bouncing around. Thanks to Kuwait Animal Aid’s partnership with US-based rescues, deserving cats like Shiva can find their forever homes. After being deemed ready for adoption, the two sisters embarked on a journey across the ocean to California.
Anaheim-based organization Rafiki’s Rescue stepped in to provide proper care and diagnosis for Shiva’s congenital condition. Upon arrival, the feline duo immediately charmed the staff with their affectionate personalities, radiating love, joy, and energy. Megan from Rafiki’s Rescue shared this heartwarming tale with Love Meow.
Shiva, the lively kitten at the shelter, would spend her nights baking biscuits and her days playing fetch like a happy pup. However, it was her energetic nature that made her caregivers realize that something was amiss. Shiva struggled to catch her breath and panted heavily, indicating that her condition was more serious than they had initially thought.
After conducting a CT scan and seeking advice from two experts, it was determined that Shiva’s nasal passage issue could not be resolved through surgery. However, there is some positive news – Shiva can still have a joyful and active life with some adjustments to her routine and living conditions. Providing her with structured playtime and a regulated environment will be key to her comfort and health.
The tabby cat with only one eye is a happy-go-lucky creature who makes the most out of each day. Her sister, Vishnu, is often found near her, either creating mischief or cuddling with her. Shiva, the one-eyed tabby, is unaware that life could be any better than it already is. Her unending joy is infectious and uplifting.
Once rescued from the streets and taken to a different continent, the two sister cats grew into stunning felines and were now prepared to find their ideal forever home.
An amazing duo was smitten by each other’s fun-loving nature. As a result, we decided to give them the opportunity to foster before adopting, and they instantly bonded with their new fur family. They now joyfully adore their new parents and four-legged companions.
After receiving extensive care for several months, Amani, the third sibling, made a full recovery. To ensure that all of the littermates were together, she was also transported overseas to Rafiki’s Rescue. Recently, Amani completed her treatment and is now ready to find a loving home.
Shiva and Vishnu are living their best life with the company of their affectionate family, adding warmth to their recently acquired abode by constantly purring and cuddling.
