A kitten named Wicket is half the size of its older brother. He may be the little one in his litter but has an i.n.c.r.e.d.i.b.l.e will to live.Hannah Miller
Wicket and her four siblings were rescued by the Humane Society of Missouri and needed foster care. The shelter contacted Tenth Life, a rescue group in St. Louis, asked if they could help.
Tenth Life welcomes a litter of five children into care. Megan Fogliano, Interim CEO of Tenth Life, told Love Meow: “All the little Ewok crew are pretty aggressive but Wicket is dwarf and much smaller than the others.”
He weighs only 8.9 oz (253 grams), but the little guy is very noisy and armed with a serious pipe.
Shortly after they were transferred to Hannah Miller, their adoptive mother, she noticed Wicket was starting to show signs of illness and immediately rushed him to the emergency room.
Fawn Duve, Director of Veterinary Care at Tenth Life, told Love Meow: “Wicket was diagnosed with pneumonia, which can be very dangerous for a child like him. ”
“Luckily, Hannah is a very experienced foster parent and realises that he needs special care.”Hannah Miller
The brave kitten showed joy at being cared for by a veterinarian.
He ended up staying in the hospital for two days. When.e.v.e.r someone takes care of it, its little face lights up and meows to get their attention.Hannah Miller
Hannah told Love Meow: “He won the hearts of all the staff. When his health improves, he just wants to sit on the vet’s lap and watch the whole hospital.”
Wicket returned and rejoined his siblings (Chirpa, Logray, Teebo, Paploo) last night.Hannah Miller
Hannah added: “He was best friends with his only sister, Chirpa, and they were the most aggressive and loudest little kitten duo.” “Wicket had no problem pushing his four older siblings out of the way so he could get enough food!
“When the belly is full and the baby starts to feel playful, the baby starts to rush in all directions while making a small cry. They may not have rushed towards anything in particular, but when they coordinate a little better, those toys get scared!”Hannah Miller
Hannah told Love Meow: “After relaxing, he likes to snuggle around my neck or snuggle in the big grey puddle where all five kids make lots of cookies and suck in their blankets. ”
Today, Wicket weighs 9 oz at 5 weeks old, still tiny but very strong in many ways!Hannah Miller
What he lacks in size, he makes up for with his larger-than-life personality. He eats like a champion, works hard to get taller and healthier.
Wicket is a quiet boy and loves to tell stories about his adoptive mother. He may be small but shows i.n.c.r.e.d.i.b.l.e determination to live life to the fullest.Hannah Miller
