Lucky found us when she was just three days old. A family friend had been telling us about a mama cat and her babies, there were originally seven. One didn’t make it, and she gradually started moving the remaining kittens. She moved the first three, and then two more. We were waiting and waiting to hear that she came back for Lucky & the news never came. We waited as long as possible, hoping that she would come back, and when she didn’t I nervously decided to take her in. I had never hand raised a newborn kitten, and it was a scary task! I just knew I had to give her a chance. The original plan was to keep her until she was old enough to be adopted, since we already have 3 cats. Within about five minutes of knowing her, that idea went out the window! I knew that she was my baby! So many peopl e told me that Lucky probably wouldn’t make it, that the mother cat abandoned her for a reason, etc. Here it is, almost two weeks later, and both vets that have seen her were surprised at how healthy she is! Although her name is Lucky, I have realized that I am actually the lucky one! She has brought so much happiness into our home, and she has me wrapped around her little paw already!
