Beth Walden, an animal rescuer from Florida, took in a palm-sized kitten who needed round-the-clock care. The little one was rejected by his cat mom. At three weeks old, he was only the size of a newborn.

They were surprised by how small he was. “I knew he was a little fighter since he had made it three weeks in the condition he was in,” Beth shared with Love Meow.

The kitten was very fragile and had trouble getting food into his belly. Beth fed him kitten formula drop by drop, and overnight, it brought the little guy back from the brink.

She cleaned off the crust covering his eyes and treated him for the infection. They didn’t know if his eyes could be salvaged but were trying everything they could to help him heal.
