Cedar came to us from under a woodpile. His
rescuer immediately took the two week old
kitten to his vet. His vet prescribed all sorts of
things for the small howling baby. However
round the clock care was not something that
the gentleman could do. Cedar, for a small
kitten, had an extremely big appetite. He
eagerly swallowed syringe after syringe of a
slurry made of First Step, a rich baby kitten food
especially for rescues like this tiny black kitten.
After the first day with us, Cedar’s paws
were wrapped with a towel as he constantly
flailed, telling us to go faster, faster, more,
right meow! As he got a bit older he looked
out and watched the other kittens. Everyone
but little Cedar had a friend to cuddle with.
Cedar refused to learn to lap by himself. He
insisted that we hold him and feed him
several times a day. Finally a few days ago
Miguel, a small tabby female, was left all
alone by her two siblings being adopted
together. We placed the two together.
Cedar could not believe his eyes! A friend
just for him! He wrapped his paws around
Miguel’s neck and snuggled down for a nap.
When Cedar awoke, he observed Miguel
lapping her bowl of wet cat food. When we
fed the two, (they receive five meals a day)
we placed a bowl in front of both kittens.
Cedar lapped all by himself. A friend is a
wonderful blessing. Cedar is now content
and a purrrfect gentleman!
