When Justina Stumilaite picked out the teeniest kitten in the litter, she had no idea what she’d look like several months later! When she was born, Brownie (the tiny kitty’s name) was the smallest and most fragile moggy in the litter. What’s more, she was born with only two toes.
Despite her frailty, Justina fell in love and took Brownie home to give her the best possible care.
Unfortunately, poor little Brownie struggled in those first few days, seemingly growing weaker and refusing her food. Thankfully, cat mum Justina was not going to give up! She persevered and with lots of food, love and patience, little Brownie started to gain weight. And lots of it!
As Brownie received love, she began to feel better and better. She was growing in size and learning to become a playful and cuddly kitty.
A super-sized kitty
Much to everyone’s surprise, Brownie didn’t stop growing and became quite the, ahem, distinctive cat. From being a frail and sickly little kitty, she grew into a huge cat that stood tall above her brothers and sisters.
These days, Brownie is even bigger than some of the dogs in her neighbourhood but no less playful.
It just goes to show that a little love goes a very long way.
