Drivers become irritated when they see something sitting right in the middle of a main road in north-western Thuringia, Germany. But when they approach it, they realise what the tiny obstacle is: a kitten.
A devastating scene
Sadly, the kitten is completely alone. Its mum is nowhere to be found, and its sibling lies next to her, lifeless. Terrified and helpless, it seems like the kitten was just waiting for someone to come and help her.
Kind passers-by decide they must rescue the little animal, and transport it to Tierheim Mühlhausen, a nearby shelter.
There, the four to five-week-old kitten is immediately taken care of. Since the kitten is not in a terrible physical condition, staff at the shelter believe she was separated from her mother just shortly before she was discovered. Unfortunately, the mother was never found, and no-one knows what happened to her.
A better future
At first, the tiny kitten was not interested in eating. So shelter staff started searching for the perfect foster family, or better yet, adoptive family, to take her in.
And fortunately, their Facebook post attracted a lot of attention. Among the people who responded to the adoption ad, was the perfect family for the kitten.
She was baptized Bella, and she’s now living her best life as a completely spoiled family pet. Way to go, Bella! You deserve it.
