A newborn kitten just a few hours old was found in a box on the Oregon sidewalk! Without their mother keeping warm and feeding them, they are cold and weak!
In fact, it was so cold that the rescuers were unable to measure the baby’s body temperature!
They were taken to the VCA hospital, where they were carefully warmed and rescuers began searching for potential Foster parents.
Rescuers took the cat to VCA hospital, where the cat will be carefully warmed and rescuers began searching for adoptive parents. At the moment, no one has signed up to do that!
Leaving the little Beep in the care of a nurse on March 30. At that time, she was only a few hours old, weighing less than 1kg.
She is very dirty and has a large flea in her fur. The nurse has a small brush that removes most of the dirt and repels fleas. But worst of all, Beep is still extremely weak.
Her sucking response is good but she can only latch on for a short time because she lacks the energy to suck properly.
Because of this, the nurse had to feed her hourly, adding fluids to these foods, both to make up for what she couldn’t eat and to keep her hydrated.
Beep is a fighter, wants to live, never give up, she started gaining weight day by day.
Before long, the baby starts to grow, but then things get worse!
On April 1, the nurse noticed some redness around Beeps’ umbilical cord, which quickly developed into a lump, and the tiny kitten was rushed to the VCA emergency room.
Beep was diagnosed with Pharyngitis, the prognosis was not good, the infection had begun to spread to the joint of one of her legs.
The vet prescribed antibiotics and Beep continued to do what she does best, eating and cleaning as she battles the infection.
Soon the infection went into remission and weight gain started again.
But Sheila noticed Beep’s right eye was swollen! While on antibiotics to treat an infection of her navel, Sheila applied warm compresses to her eyes to reduce swelling and help heal.
