In early September, Beth Walden from Florida stumbled upon a distress signal on Facebook about a newborn kitten found alone on the streets. Without hesitation, she reached out and volunteered to help. Accompanied by her daughter, they retrieved the kitten the next day and realized he was extremely hungry. A speedy trip to the nearest store resulted in the purchase of essential supplies, including a syringe, which came in handy for the kitten’s immediate feeding in the parking lot. The kitten was affectionately named Little Short Pants and quickly proved to be a fighter. Photo credit goes to Beth Walden’s Instagram account, @mr_tiny_pants.
The newborn had his eyes shut and was still connected to the umbilical cord, but he was able to move without any trouble. Upon Baby’s arrival, Beth’s three dogs heard him crying and came over to meet him. With Beth’s guidance, Frenchy’s dog licked the kitten’s muzzle lovingly and gently, like a mother would.
Salvador the dog had a strong fondness for the little kitten and would often make visits whenever it began to squeak. According to Beth, the other pets in the house would quickly come over when they heard the kitten’s meows.
In the coming weeks, the Kid achieved several significant accomplishments. Little Short Pants finally decided to open his eyes, and his furry companions were present to commemorate the momentous occasion.
Once the little kitty grew up a bit, Beth gave him the chance to snuggle up with the dogs – while keeping a watchful eye on them, of course. As soon as he nestled into their embrace, he couldn’t help but let out a relaxing purr. The warmth and affection from his furry companions lifted his mood and made him feel cherished and at peace.
Lately, the little one has been mastering the art of walking. The furry companions observed intently as he wobbled on his tiny feet and took his initial strides forward.
Salvador is a true caretaker when it comes to the little kitten, as he pays close attention to every aspect of its well-being.
The child who was once discovered in solitude will never have to experience loneliness again.
Our baby has finally reached 510g on the weighing scale! It’s amazing to see how much he has grown since we took him to the vet as a few days old kitten when he weighed only 113g. It’s a proud moment for us as pet parents to witness his growth.
