A couple, who intended to help a feral mother and her babies, caught one of the kittens and tried to provide it with a better life. Unfortunately, this action resulted in the separation of the attractive calico from her mother at an early age, leading to a dangerous situation. Fortunately, Marlena, the founder of Be Their Voice Animal Rescue in Atlanta, Georgia, received information about the kitten’s distress and quickly took action to assist. A photo of the kitten has been shared on Instagram by fostercatsfordays.
For several weeks, Uno had been in the company of her rescuers who had good intentions. She was malnourished and deserted in their bathroom, making loud cries continuously.
Uno had a habit of screaming at the top of her voice whenever she was left alone, even for a short period of time. This was probably due to her past experiences of being isolated and locked in the bathroom for hours on end. In another story, a brother was seen taking care of his younger sibling with closed eyes after the loss of their mother. The siblings were scared and relied only on each other for support. They would cling to each other and seek comfort in the presence of anyone who came into the room.
In no time, Uno settled in and showed a preference for human company over the cozy napping spots. She loved to curl up on laps, necks, and arms. When she had her first vet check-up, it went smoothly with one exception- a parasitic infection called Giardia. Despite being otherwise healthy, the entire cat and kitten household needed treatment until they were all free of the infection.
Uno remained a very affectionate kitten even as time passed. She enjoyed being held and snuggled, and would often doze off in anyone’s lap. However, she started to understand that she was no longer alone and felt secure enough to sleep in different areas. Her confidence began to grow.
As time passed by, her tummy problems subsided, and she started to flourish in terms of physical growth. With each passing day, her energy levels were at an all-time high, exuding the playfulness of a young kitten let loose from its enclosure.

With great enthusiasm and fierceness, she fearlessly faced toys that were twice her size despite her small stature.
After successfully overcoming her parasitic infection, Uno was ready to mingle and combat her severe case of single-kitten syndrome. She found a great companion in Tess, and the two felines formed an inseparable bond in no time.
A few weeks after their readiness for adoption, Uno and Tess received even more heartwarming news. They were adopted together as a duo, ensuring that they will have each other in their forever home.
After moving to their new abode, both of them adapted well without any hassle. Uno is still the dominant one, ensuring that she always gets her food first.
Over time, Bella’s physical state showed great improvement, and she started to manifest her true vibrant and affectionate personality that was meant for her. After her matted fur was groomed and she received proper nourishment, her once emaciated body filled out. The most notable change was her newfound joy, as if she had finally found the love and care that she was deprived of for so long, as her eyes sparkled with happiness.
As Bella’s rescue and recovery story travelled, people from far and wide reached out to offer their support and admiration for her resilience. Her inspiring journey motivated others to become animal welfare advocates and work tirelessly to end neglect and cruelty.
Bella’s journey from an unloved and suffering dog to a treasured companion is a strong reminder of the transformative power of compassion and how a single act of kindness can make a huge difference in the life of a suffering animal. Her story serves as an appeal to us all to be watchful advocates for those who cannot speak for themselves, by sharing love, care, and protection to animals in need, ensuring that no living creature ever endures such pain and suffering again.
