Kitten no bigger than a chapstick tube found abandoned in bushes
Little more than a chapstick in size, the tiny kitten was saved from the bushes close to a house and fought his way to excellent health and happiness.
Stuart Little had been left in the bushes with his mother and siblings, who were all much larger than him, when they were just found. Stuart Little was totally helpless when Fabulous Felines NWA took him in. Nobody knew for sure if he would survive.
But at least we had to try, they said. “Stuart Little was brought to me in August together with his mother and six other littermates after being saved from the outside by a resident of Springdale (Scott Hollandsworth). Stuart Little was the worst of the kittens since the mother was very severely underweight and almost feral”, according to rescue worker Amanda Rhea.
On his head and face, his fur did grow back, and in less than a week, he more than doubled in weight. In order to ensure the mother cat’s safety and wellbeing, I had her neutered and moved her to Cat Haven Ranch after she stopped feeding her kittens and showed little interest in food. I continued with bottle feeding until a surrogate mother could be obtained for the kittens.
Stuart Little’s human foster mother got help from Bessie, a loving cat surrogate. 6 weeks of age. The body of Stuart Little has not yet caught up to his mind. Since his last photo with a ChapStick, he had grown a month’s worth of weight and was now about 8 weeks old. Stuart was given a loyal, lifelong home.
