A tiny one-day-old kitten and her three siblings were found all alone with no mother in sight.

The ladies who found them brought them in to the Nevada SPCA No-Kill Animal Shelter right after they were born.

They waited around for the mother cat, but she remained out of sight and never returned. Sadly, the kitten’s three siblings didn’t survive; they were extremely little and couldn’t pull through. But the kitten, named Nala, fought hard to live.

Her foster mom, Patricia Rusek, told Love Meow, that after just one week, Nala was already gaining strength and starting to grow. She began to eat more and get rest, and Rusek knew she was going to be ok.

Rusek took great care of Nala, bottle-feeding her around the clock. When Nala first opened her eyes, she was bundled up in a cozy blanket, which became her favorite.

Nala is a very curious kitty and loves to explore. She is also very friendly and affections and loves cuddles. She purrs whenever she’s wrapped up in her foster mom’s arms.

Nala is now nearly eight weeks old and she continues to grow big and strong. She still loves the warmth of blankets and even stuffed animals.

Nala has come a long way since she was found abandoned, and she will continue to thrive while she awaits her forever home!
