WHEN THEY FIRST SAW HIM THEY THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD! THERE WERE NO SIGNS OF MOVEMENT, NO SIGNS OF LIFE AT ALL.
Two Good Samaritans saw a kitten lying alone on the street, he was curled up into a tiny ball and covered with ants, when his leg gave a slight twitch, that gave them a glimmer of hope.
They picked the tiny kitten up and decided to try and get him all the help he needed in the hope it was not already too late.
They both knew time was of the essence.
“My partner and I found him curled up beside an automotive repair shop here in the Philippines. According to the mechanics, street children brought him there and were playing with him. He was covered in dirt. His right eye was shut due to pus,” Andy told the people of Love Meow.
He was rushed to an animal hospital where he was first cleaned up by a vet and given anti-biotics for his eye infection.
Severely dehydrated he was given milk replacements every four hours or so, then they all waited for an improvement in his overall condition.
SOON HE OPPENED HIS EYES.
Soon he opened his eyes, they were so beautiful. They gave him the name Alden.
Alden was still waddling a bit when he walked. “He is able to walk without limping, and cries loudly for more milk!”
They had to feed him with a syringe for a few days until the ginger boy was strong enough to eat on his own.
Alden arrived at his new forever home on October 10. He is recovering nicely and has a healthy appetite.
It’s been almost 3 weeks since they found him.
He’s got a full, round belly, big ears, and a lot of cattitude.
“He eats a lot and is getting more active now.
We are so happy we took him home.”
