Sassy was left behind at a very young age. Her eyes were barely open. At less than one week old, the only way she knew to survive was to cry out for her mother.

"She was abandoned in a friend's backyard. The mom never came back for her so we took her in," Sassy's human told Love Meow. "She hadn't eaten in two days and we were worried that she wouldn't make it."

They bottle fed her every few hours around the clock to keep her alive. Every day the tiny fur baby surprised them with her new found energy and eagerness to eat. It brought them a lot of hope.

"This was the first night that we picked her up. Her eyes weren't open all the way and she meowed until we held her and fed her."

Sassy was fighting for her life with all of her five ounces. She refused to give up.

They paired her with a little cuddly buddy to snuggle with when she napped.

In just one week, Sassy put on three ounces and tripled her energy.

She loved her bottle so much that she would hold onto it when she ate.

"It took a lot of work but she slowly got stronger. Her eyes opened up all the way and she started to walk better, too," Sassy's human told Love Meow.

Sassy was nursed back to health with some help from a loyal canine friend. Molly took to Sassy on the day they met and has been very protective of her kitten ever since.

"Her big sister Molly loves playing with her and giving her kisses. Sassy loves napping on her too."
