Sweet kitten blossoms into a beautiful Siamese cat after being returned from the brink

A kitten found in disrepair and turned into a beautiful cat with the help of a loving family.

Laura Malone, director of Mini Cat Town (a San Jose, Calif. Cat rescue), took in a small kitten in need of care. The little guy named Yeti came to Mini Cat Town as a tiny singleton covered in fleas and dirt.

Though the little yeti was so frail, he managed to eat something with all his might. It was clear from the start that the kitten was a fighter and had a strong will to live.

He was underweight and busy. They didn’t know what might have happened to its mother or siblings, but the kitten survived despite all odds and continued to fight for life.

Laura cleaned him all up and started treating him for stomach problems. The kitten had trouble eating, so it was syringe-fed every few hours.

“I carefully fed him by dripping formula on his tongue and waiting for him to swallow little by little,” shared Laura.

With proper care, good food, a warm bed, and a cuddly toy to keep him company, the kitten perked up.

Yeti finally figured out how to cling to a bottle. It was a game changer for the little guy who went from eating with help to gobbling food like there was no tomorrow.

“He found his bar. My first reaction was: Wait! Slow!”

After several hearty meals, Yeti felt like a new kitten. He was strong enough to stand on his feet and even knead on his soft blanket.

With consistently good food, the little guy gained weight, made incredible progress, and became more active every day.

“At feeding time I had to wake him up and he gave me a very weak little meow. Now he’s waiting for me right outside the door, demanding food,” wrote Laura.

With his voracious appetite, he quickly grew in size and fluff.

“He’s no longer satisfied with eating, potty training and going back to the incubator. Now he demands a few rounds of exploration on the floor.”

Yeti always seemed to know when it was time to feed as he patiently stared at his human and waited for his food to be served.

After getting a full tummy, he played and practiced his command crawls and honed his newly acquired feline skills.

“Yeti is very cute. He is thriving and he is full of curiosity and affection,” wrote Laura. “It’s amazing how tough this guy is! He eats like a champ and loves to frolic on his little legs.”

As the kitten continued to grow and develop, its Siamese markings on its paws and nose became more evident and its personality fully revealed.

It took him a little longer to wean because he was a bottle kitten, but late bloomers do well.

Ever since he was little, Yeti has been accompanied by a cuddle buddy (puppy) every time he naps. It is his loyal friend that he cuddles with all the time.

They knew when the time for adoption came, Yeti and his pup would always stick together.

After a difficult start in life and some bumps (health problems) on the way to recovery, Yeti the kitten was healthy and big enough to start a new chapter in life.

A family member of a Mini Cat Town volunteer fell head over heels in love with the little guy.

When he was ready to spread his wings and fly, he went to his eternal home with his pup. The cute kitten quickly settled in its new accommodation and took a long nap with its beast.
