Two kittens were found lonely, injured and orphaned near Phoenix, Arizona. They were five days old, and no one knew how long they had lived without a mother. Both kittens had wounds on their legs and needed urgent help and treatment to survive. Fortunately, the person who found these babies contacted the experienced kitten rescuer Melinda Blaine.
When Blaine saw the kittens, they were amazed at how long they live. “The tortie girl with the tortoise shell weighed only 85 grams, while her brother weighed 120 grams. She weighed less than a newborn at five days, ”Blaine said. However, both kittens fought and seemed to gain strength from each other.
The ginger cat is called the Buddha and the bonsai turtle. The siblings were treated with antibiotics to prevent infection. The kittens were inextricably linked, and if separated, they would pay each other money. But they seemed to realize that they were in the right place with the right savior. “Then it just became our attention. As if they just knew they loved themselves so much,” Blaine said.
The kittens recovered quickly. Bonsai gained 15 grams in one day, and the Buddha was still blooming next to him. Blaine said, “He is a great little fighter and the toughest man […] He had a very fast appetite and fighting spirit, so his size quickly increased and healed.”
On the tenth day, the kitten opened its eyes and its belly became round and full. They began to rejoice in the hugs and hugs of each other and Blaine. “Siblings spend more time in hugs in the morning, and they are always ineffective when hugging,” Blaine explained.
These two kittens were saved from certain death by kind people, Blaine’s love and care. She hopes that someone will soon adopt the kittens when they are ready to be adopted. Therefore, Buddha and bonsai will always embrace each other.
