A week ago, a tiny gray kitten was born but somehow left behind crawling hopelessly on the street after the pouring rain, but the little guy's fate was changed when a kind woman spotted him and gave him a new family.
Bruce was born somewhere in Kingsland, Auckland. Kathryn van Beek spotted this palm-sized ball of gray fluff crawling down on the roadside all by himself and soaking wet.
She checked with the neighbors to see if he belonged to anyone but no one claimed the little kitten. Kathryn knew this little one needed a family and someone to care of him, and she was going to make it happen.

He was no more than a day old, so young that his umbilical cord was still attached. Despite his tough beginning into this world, this little fluff ball fought hard to survive.
The around the clock care began as they slowly nursed the little fragile life back to health and breathed strength into this tiny body.
"My mum and dad think that getting up every two hours, smelling like milk all the time and arguing about who is better at getting me to sleep is probably not too dissimilar from being the parent of a human," the page says.
Dad's turn to feed their tiny fur baby. It's a labor of love, worth every second.
