Her name is Pattypan. She and her three siblings were born to a stray mama who disappeared one day. The good Samaritans that found them, got them help from a rescue group. Two months later, they came back for the little calico girl.
"Ambercup, Calabash and Pattypan and their brother Zucchini (Zuke) came to us on August 2nd and were estimated to be about three weeks old.
Their mother, a stray, had given birth to them, cared for them for a few weeks, and then disappeared," Robyn Anderson, fosterer of the Challenger's House in Toney, Alabama, shares the story via Love and Hisses.

"They went to Eva (bottle baby fosterer extraordinaire) for a few days, and then came to us. When we got them, Pattypan had an abscess on her right front leg, and it got worse before it got better."
Pattypan had a bandage on her leg because she had an abscess drained, and a small drain put in. It didn't bother her.
"She required twice-daily warm compresses, dressing changes, and antibiotics for her first few weeks with us."
Sweet little Pattypan!
Bandage or not, it doesn't slow her down a bit.
"She finally healed up and it doesn't look like she's going to have any issue with that leg."
The good folks that saved the litter came back to the rescue group two months later. They were smitten with the little calico on the day they found her.
"Pattypan was adopted on October 6th by the people who actually found and cared for the litter before turning them over to Challenger’s House."
What a beauty she's become!
