Mimi the calico is a miracle kitty who was found on the sidewalk just hours after she was born. She was so tiny but the little one wouldn't give up living. "Her eyes were still closed and her umbilical cord was attached," said Ilan P. who rescued Mimi and nursed her back to health. His dog Peki also gave him a big helping paw.
"It was challenging and fascinating to care for her and see how she developed from that tiny helpless little newborn. Eventually she became part of the family," Ilan added.

Mimi the calico was found on the sidewalk just hours after she was born.
They kept her warm with a soft cloth...
and nursed her back to health.
Peki the dog gave his human a big helping hand. He bathed her...
...played with her...
...and watched over her when she napped.
Mimi loved her home and all the love she could get.
All grown up now. This miracle baby has become a gorgeous cat.
