Mila, a sweet and precious grey and white kitten, had a tough start in life. Sadly, her mother passed away during her birth leaving her as the only survivor. The poor little kitten was taken to the pound where she was discovered by Marie, who is the founder of One Cat At a Time. At just three days old, Mila was the size of a newborn and required constant care, nourishment, and affection to survive. Despite her small size and lack of a mother, Mila demonstrated immense strength and determination to thrive. Fortunately, Marie and her team were contacted to help the kitten, and they named her Mila.

As she snuggled with her sheep mama, the little kitten drifted off to a peaceful slumber. The kind folks at One Cat At a Time couldn’t help but notice how defenseless Mila was without her mother’s care. To ensure that she received the necessary nurturing, they promptly set up an incubator for her and provided a sheep plushy with a beating heart for comfort. Mila eagerly snuggled on top of the fluffy toy and kneaded away. Without access to colostrum from her mother’s milk, Mila’s immune system was compromised, making her all the more vulnerable.

Mila greeted the world, ready to take it on. She was a single kitten in her litter, which was not ideal for survival as kittens tend to fare better with a companion. However, Mila defied the odds and immediately took to the bottle, eagerly drinking the formula without hesitation. Her tenacity during mealtime was admirable and nothing would hinder her appetite.

Mila, the adorable kitten, was resourceful with the limited resources available to her. She would move around her cozy bed to locate the perfect spot to snuggle with her sheep mother. Her foster family was astonished by her unwavering strength and abilities. As soon as she opened her eyes, Mila started vocalizing herself more during mealtime. She made sure to stuff her tummy before lying on her back and dozing off in the warmth of her blankets, completely carefree.

Taking Care of a Kitten
Mila, a kitten who needed extra attention, was given an incubator to keep her warm and a motherly sheep to care for her. Thanks to round-the-clock care, Mila didn’t just survive but thrived as a bottle-fed baby. Soon enough, she was moved to a larger playpen where she could practice her cat skills and play without any worries.
