Girl Thought She Rescued An Ordinary Kitten But Commenters Disagreed

| Published on February 25, 2024

Katherine Van Beek, a passionate enthusiast of all things animal, was on her way home when she spotted a minuscule creature making its way across the sidewalk. Initially, she mistook it for a mouse due to its small size. However, upon closer inspection, Katherine discovered it was actually a newborn kitten, umbilical cord still intact. Aware of the slim chances of survival for a kitten so young and vulnerable, she nevertheless felt compelled to attempt a rescue.

Katherine brought the motherless kitten home and named him Bruce after Batman because he, too, was also an orphan. She cared for the little one around the clock, praying for his survival. She planned on fostering Bruce, and if he survived, she’d find him a forever home. But that all went out the window once Bruce opened his eyes for the first time.

With Katherine’s care, Bruce thrived! Then, oddly, the kitten’s coat changed from a light grey to black. The vet explained that Bruce had “fever coat.” If a mother is sick or stressed and gives birth, parts of their fur can change to grey, cream, or even red.

The teeny grey kitten is now a big boy that loves life. Especially bird watching! Thank you, Katherine, for saving this precious cat’s life!
