When the little grey kitten was found, it was clear she was in a bad way and was taken straight to the vet. The vet discovered she was severely dehydrated and malnourished and had a brain injury. The poor puss couldn't even lift her head.
While her age was estimated to be around nine weeks, she was only the size of a 3-week old kitten. It took some intensive TLC from the vet staff to get the kitten back on her paws again.
Fortunately, cat fosterer, Danielle was also at the vet and spotted the tiny kitten and instantly fell for her. A few days later, Danielle received a message from the vet asking if she would foster the small grey kitten. Her answer was an emphatic "Yes"!
Danielle and her husband named the little kitten Luna because, "her eyes were as big as moons".
But while Luna recovered from most of her injuries, she was still tiny for her age, making her eyes look huge. She also had a heart murmur, ringworm and a fungal infection. But that wasn't going to stop her.
She gradually put on weight, which filled out her face, so her eyes didn't look so out of proportion. She also overcame her heart murmur and even beat the ringworm with great gusto. The little kitten still experiences head tremors, but they don't seem to stop her from enjoying her new life as a healthy and feisty feline.
Happy ever after
Luna's foster family describe her as a "quirky goofball" who "plays hard and sleeps hard".
Now Luna is ready to begin life with her forever family and feline sibling and finally enjoy her happily ever after.
