Hazel and her sister Effie were surrendered to the shelter. Without a mom, the two babies need to be hand reared round the clock. Laurie C. of Itty Bitty Kitty Committee took the sisters to her home and became their surrogate mom.
When Hazel came to her foster home, she was very sad.
"When they arrived, their expressions were blank, and they did not respond to the sight of us or any movement or sounds. They were just tiny, hungry, squirming, screaming things.
Now, they interact with us so much more. They seek attention and affection. Their eyes are brighter, they respond to sound, they are stronger and more stable, they play harder, and scream louder."
They cleaned her up and helped her settle in.
Hazel and her sister were cared for around the clock...
Then they learned to eat on their own.
Two weeks later - she became a completely different kitten - larger, livelier, and louder. :)
Hazel and Effie at their forever loving home, happy and loved!
