Fellow activists reported a five-week-old kitten with paralyzed hind legs to Caroline Grace, founder of Baby Kitten Rescue (in Los Angeles).
Archie, a kitten, was in desperate need of expert care and, of course, affection. “We couldn’t stay away any longer and decided to adopt a kitten,” Caroline explains.
“Archie was little and terrified when I first took him home.” A fragile, brittle creature lay behind all this beautiful hair, dehydrated and coated with bugs, thorns, and filthy matting.”
Caroline proceeded to look after the baby, washing him and removing any fleas before giving him water.
“Archie was very scared at first and hid under all his blankets. He wept for the first hour, then he began to feel safe. After another couple of hours, he was already purring, fawning.
Finally relaxing, the kitten fell asleep for a long time in his cozy bed on a full stomach. He was grateful that he was taken care of, so he purred all over the room.
