Teeny abandoned kitten only eats when you pet her
This poor 1.5 pound kitten was brought to a shelter seriously injured and needing a meal.
"A staff member asked me to check out a 1.5-pound kitten that had just arrived at the shelter and was very seriously injured. When I opened the cardboard box that contained the kitten, I saw a little white and gray kitten who promptly hissed at me," Dr. Ostermann wrote.
The kitten had a badly severed leg, and she was taken in immediately for treatment.
"We gave her food and a comfy padded bed. Although she had food available to her, she showed no interest. It was discovered that she would only eat when she was petted, and she would promptly stop eating when the petting stopped. With that being the case, the shelter staff made sure to oblige the kitten by providing her that extra attention so as to ensure she received her proper nutrition."
The treatment and surgery were a success! The kitten made a full recovery.
"The kitten recovered quickly from anesthesia on a warm, comfy bed with food and lots of petting to stimulate her to eat."
The fighting kitten has now been taken in by a rescue organization and is in search for her forever home.
