Parking lot kitten barely surviving off bugs gets rescued and becomes a spoiled prince!
A woman found this poor little guy crying for help in the parking lot. He's now a spoiled prince!
"Several days ago, I found and rescued an emaciated, half dead, starving ball of hair curled up all alone in a parking lot with nothing to eat but bugs." angrybroad shared on reddit.
"I really think he only ate bugs due to desperation, hunger, and the subpar hunting skills of a 5-6 week old kitten. He had been eating June bugs or whatever they're called. Those dumb brown beetles that fly into lights repeatedly. I only know because I got him through the "expulsion" process, and apparently kitties don't digest beetle shells."
But this little guy is already spoiled.
"I've been pampering him with stupidly fancy cat food with stuff like whitefish, whole tiny shrimp, and tilapia and he loves it, and is already becoming a bit of a diva in deciding whether or not a new food is up to his standards. He probably feels beetles are beneath him now lol"
He loves his new toys!
"He turned out to be the sweetest, most lovable bug-eating ball of hair I've ever known, and is also slowly becoming the most spoiled."
"I haven't been able to settle on a name yet. It's weird but to me he looks like he belongs in a forest, because of his fur pattern, so I've been trying to come up with an "earthy" name for him."
"He's just now really getting into truly normal kitten behavior, since he was too weak and probably traumatized at first to focus on anything but eating and sleeping. But now that he's feeling so much better, he is a precocious little thing."
"He has a bunch of toys that he frequently attacks, he really likes reaching under things like doors and frantically swatting at nothing, discovering "caves" to hide in, testing just how rough he can be with our hands and feet, etc etc etc. He's very happy and playful now. He still sleeps a lot but when he's up he's showing us just how much better he feels."
Right now, she's focused on getting his weight and strength up, but a vet checkup is on the top of her list.
I think it's safe to say that this little prince is in good hands. :)
