In a world invisible to him, a little 4-week-old kitten found his entire universe transformed by a loving family and their cat.
The diminutive feline was received by SpokAnimal, suffering from severe eye infections, leading to an immediate enucleation at the Animal Emergency Clinic due to the irreparable condition of his eyes. The procedure was extensive for such a small creature, leaving him with stitches, but his spirits remained untamed. Jamie Myers, a volunteer at SpokAnimal, welcomed him into her home to foster, providing a sanctuary filled with warmth and affection for his recovery.
Jamie was instantly enamored upon meeting him. “He quickly became my whole world,” she shared with Love Meow. The kitten, now named Stevie, remained reticent and withdrawn initially, showing reluctance towards food and drink. Jamie tenderly syringe-fed him to ensure his hydration.
However, as Stevie began to regain his strength by the third day, he displayed an increased longing for affection and companionship. “I carry him in a baby sling against my chest, allowing him the closeness he seeks whenever he desires to rest. His trust in me is truly remarkable,” Jamie revealed.
Stevie developed an insatiable hunger, preferring his favorite blend of food, and made significant progress. “I used to weigh him four times a day on my gram scale, and now I don’t need to.”
Stevie started exploring, relying on his remaining senses. He exhibited no hesitation in stepping into unfamiliar territories and walked around any new environment with joy.
Upon his introduction to three other foster felines and a resident cat, Prince Waffles, Stevie learned to traverse his surroundings by trailing behind them. His courage and playful nature became more evident as he engaged with toys and enjoyed playful skirmishes, often climbing onto Jamie for a brief reprieve between his playtimes.
Stevie showed love to every feline he met, but it was Waffles who truly won his heart. Waffles reciprocated the affection, becoming a comforting presence for Stevie, their bond growing stronger each day. They turned into inseparable companions, experiencing the joys of play and the serenity of rest together.
Jamie and her family were deeply touched by Stevie, realizing that they were meant to be his permanent family. “I knew he was meant to be with us from the first moment I saw him,” Jamie confessed.
Jamie credits the individuals at SpokAnimal for saving Stevie, calling them the true heroes of his journey. Recently, Stevie had his stitches removed and expressed his gratitude by purring softly into Jamie’s ears, a symbol of his new-found happiness.
Waffles and Stevie continue to share an indissoluble bond, living their lives in joyous harmony, leaving them exhausted yet content, as the ideal pair.
