“From Petite Kittens to Majestic Cats: A Journey of Growth with a Canine Companion”

Three Kittens Less Than Half the Size They Should Be Transform into Gorgeous Cats with the Help of a Dog

Three tiny kittens, smaller than they should have been, blossomed into beautiful cats thanks to the assistance of a friendly canine.

Around three months back, Tara Hatch, the founder of Mad Catters, an animal rescue organization, was given three 4-week-old kittens in dire need of assistance. They were infested with fleas, severely lacking in red blood cells, and suffering from dehydration. The veterinary team provided them with around-the-clock care, administering fluids, medications, and feeding them every two hours. Tara mentioned to Love Meow that the kittens were only a third of the size they should have been due to severe malnourishment. “It’s nothing short of a miracle that they survived when they were brought to us because their red blood cell count was so low that it was incompatible with life.”

Pixie, Paul, and Bandit were three little kittens who were too weak to stand on their own. Despite their fragile condition, they displayed a strong determination to survive. Along with the excellent care they received, a clinic dog named Ned also lent a helping hand. Ned, a Bull Terrier belonging to one of the nurses at the clinic, offered his support to the kittens in need.

Paul witnessed Ned selflessly donating blood at the clinic, contributing to saving numerous lives. The three kittens were in critical condition and required specialized care to help them recover. Thanks to Ned and another cat named Marshmallow, the trio showed remarkable progress and began to bounce back. Paul was thrilled to observe the kittens transition from being weak and unenergetic to lively and engaged in play after the four-hour transfusion.

The kittens were once again full of energy, and their hunger returned with a vengeance. They packed on some much-needed weight and gained plenty of strength. When they visited the vet again, they snuggled up to Ned as if to express their gratitude for rescuing them.
With a month of love and care from the veterinary team and their foster mom, the trio began to flourish.

Tara Hatch noticed a positive change in the kittens’ behavior as their health improved. She was amazed by their energetic and playful personalities that started to shine through. According to Tara, she has never fostered kittens with such determination to survive before. She was truly impressed by their remarkable recovery journey.

Now three months old, the kittens have grown in size and transformed into a lively and mischievous group. Tara is delighted to see them thriving and enjoying life to the fullest.

They love to run around the house with their endless energy. Despite their playful nature, the kittens are in need of love and attention from their owners.
“Bandit (ginger tabby) is a complete cuddle bug. He is always seeking out cuddles and enjoys hanging out and snuggling with my dog a lot,” Tara mentioned.

Tara Hatch describes Paul as a large, affectionate, and sweet boy with a diluted ginger and white coat. He loves to cuddle up on your lap or chest, staying close to you with calm and gentle behavior from the moment you pick him up until you put him down.

Paul introduced me to Tara Hatch and her adorable calico cat, Pixie. Pixie is quite the chatterbox, always making cute trilling sounds to get attention when she wants to play or cuddle. Despite being smaller than her two brothers, Pixie is the boss of the group. Tara says, “She has her brothers wrapped around her little paw.”
