Rescuers Found Kitten Through a Fence and the Kitty Was Not Alone

In May, rescuers from Alley Cat Rescue worked on a TNR (trap-neuter-return) project near the North Hollywood Metro station in Los Angeles. While they were there, they discovered a tiny kitten poking her head out through a hole in a wooden fence, but she was not alone.

As it turned out, the kitten was with her siblings and they all needed medical attention. Rescuers sprang into action and got them to safety.

Meeps, the weakest kitten in the litter, was hanging on with all her might. Her eyes were sealed shut due to infections.

“They were very ill and required multiple rounds of antibiotics for prolonged upper respiratory infections, eye ointment, eye drops, GI meds, probiotics, and treatment for multiple parasites,” Desiree Stapley of Alley Cat Rescue shared with Love Meow.
“Meeps was the smallest and sickest and we did not know if she would survive, let alone see again.”

The kittens were placed in foster care with wonderful volunteers. Over the next several weeks, they were given round-the-clock care to help them recover.

Meeps needed extra attention for her eyes but she never complained and cuddled with her caretakers after every meal.

She purred up a storm, snuggling with her siblings in their comfy, warm bed – they were so happy to have a safe place to stay after a rough beginning.

With a roof over their heads, proper care they needed to recuperate, and plenty of love and hugs to go around, the kittens began to improve and gain weight and strength. “It took a village to get these kitties healthy.”

Meeps surprised everyone with her incredible will to live and has developed an endearing personality.

“This adorable sweet girl comes looking for love in the right places. She rolls around on your computer keyboard, purring until you can’t resist.”

“She sits on your shoulder, waiting for a tea break patiently. Her brother Bear is another snuggler and their dilute calico sister Prue is also the sweetest baby.”

“She has the most wonderful personality especially after all she has been through – eye meds daily for months,” Desiree told Love Meow.

“She got the all clear from an ophthalmologist at VCA last Thursday. Her eyes are looking great.”

Meeps and her siblings are almost three months old and have grown by leaps and bounds. She’s still the smallest kitty, but what she lacks in size, she surely makes up for in personality.

The little feline family is ready for their next chapter of life – their forever loving homes.

Meeps went from a kitten who couldn’t see, to a gorgeous girl with bright eyes.

Look at her now!
