Woman finds newborn kitten abandoned in the pouring rain, brings him back to life
Kathryn Van Beek was walking home one day in the pouring rain in Kingsland, Auckland when she spotted something barely squirming on the footpath.
She thought it was a mouse at first, but upon closer inspection, she noticed a teeny kitten with his umbilical cord still attached.
“He wasn’t meowing when I found him but he was crawling slowly along on his tummy as though he was trying to find his mother. Poor little mite,” Kathryn told Love Meow.
She named him Bruce, after the orphaned Bruce Wayne, aka Batman.
She brought him home and gave him the warmth and food he desperately needed. If she didn't happen to stumble upon him that very moment, she didn't expect him to live to see the next day.
Taking care of Bruce was a full time job. She had to constantly get up in the middle of the night to feed and cuddle him, and despite his size, he was very vocal and loud when he needed attention.
The first few days were a bit rough, but he soon began to purr and show his adorable heart.
At 12 days old, he was just over 100 grams!
Bruce continued to get stronger each and every day.
His eyes finally open!
They tought him to eat on his own like a big boy.
His grooming needed some work, but he soon got the hang of it!
He loves to play.
Especially with his big sister, Jager.
He loves her... she tolerates him.
Just look at that face!
Bruce is now 13 weeks old and healthier than ever!
Kathryn and her family weren't ever planning on getting a second cat, but Bruce quickly became their new fur baby. He's now part of the famly furever!
Watch Bruce in action in the videos below!
See Bruce and Jager play in the bushes.
Bruce wins this battle!
