Preemie Little Cat Was Abandoned By Her Birth Cat Mom But a Family Swooped In and Saved Her With Their Love

Preemie Little Cat Was Abandoned By Her Birth Cat Mom But a Family Swooped In and Saved Her With Their Love

Hazel the little calico had terrible odds luck wise when she was conceived. She was a preemie and the only survivor in the litter. Over a month prior, Katerina of CatRescue 901, a Rescue group in New South Wales, Australia, found out about the predicament of a litter of kittens born to an unspayed house cat.

"The indoor house cat slipped out the door accidentally one day and came home pregnant," Katerina told Catstore.co "She had a really traumatic birth. The babies were premature and two were stillborn.

The feline mother was under stress and refused to nurture the little cats since she couldn't produce any milk. A rescuer picked up the remaining two kittens and transferred them to Katerina. "We had them checked at the vet and they confirmed that they were premature. The little boy passed away just a few minutes after I got home."

Hazel turned into the sole survivor and she was not willing to surrender.

"She was very tiny (79 grams) and fragile. I was up feeding her every two hours and I barely slept because I was so worried about her," Katerina told Catstore.co

At a couple of days old, the shy calico was at war with an umbilical disease. Katerina worked nonstop to nourish her and help her get stronger.

Throughout the following couple of weeks, there were moments where Katerina didn't know whether the little cat would make it. Hazel was raced to the vet as they suspected she had fading kitten syndrome. The little one held tight with an enormous battle to live.

The sweet calico adores cuddling with her foster parents. "My heart warms up so much when I look at her and I cry happy tears when I see her snuggling up with my partner," Katerina said. "Those weeks have been so stressful but look at this gorgeous girl that has stayed with us."

After a few vet visits, numerous restless evenings and innumerable cuddles and kisses, the calico started to flourish. "She pulled through with devoted consideration and loads of affection from myself and my accomplice. She is a little diva," Katerina included.

With assistance from CatRescue 901, Hazel's feline mom has been spayed and vaccinated and will never again have kittens.

The little preemie has transformed into a cute heap of a furball, full of life and bright personality. Hazel turned five weeks old, and she's as upbeat as anyone might imagine.

What a difference a few weeks make!
