Lilo is a sweet cat who, from the moment she was rescued, won hearts with her resilience and determination to live.
Laura Malones, director of Mini Cat Tow, a cat rescue facility in San José, California, greeted him and his two brothers, Stich and Nani, with open arms.
The three fuzzy kittens were in poor health, being underweight and suffering from an upper respiratory infection.
Sitch and Nani quickly gained weight and improved their condition, but Lilo’s rehabilitation was more longer.
As he battled to break out of the turmoil he was in, he was fed through a syringe.
Little Lilo was the most reclusive of the three, preferring to take lengthy naps and snuggle up to her foster father’s chest, which became her favorite spot to relax and recuperate.
“He gladly ate all of his meals and spent a lot of time playing with his brothers. Laura said, “I was also aware of and interested in playing with little toys.”
Lilo’s health gradually recovered, and she took little efforts to get to know the house, play games, and cause some trouble. Nothing, however, made her happier than being spoiled by her foster family. Laura had this to say about it:
“Lilo was kind and affectionate, while Stich was fun and Nani was naughty. She enjoyed playing with her siblings and was self-sufficient, but she also enjoyed cuddling.
It was enough for Laura to enter the room, for Lilo to flee in search of attention, and for Laura to be able to indulge in some delicious pampering. The kittens’ health improved dramatically over the next few days, and they were ready to be adopted.
Fortunately, a family couldn’t resist Lilo and Nani’s charms, and the two small girls were adopted together. Stich has also found a permanent home, and he is content to be the family’s sweetheart.
