Many animals receive their second chance at life, but we’d like to tell you the story of one lucky little kitten with a truly miraculous story of survival. A good Samaritan, enjoying a warm spring day, saw a tiny orange kitten fall, quite literally, from the sky! The terrified newborn, only a day or two old, had fallen from the grasp of a bird of prey flying overhead. This tiny fighter was admitted to SVACA’s Animal Care Center and carefully treated for multiple puncture wounds and bruising on her tiny body. A loving foster parent nursed her through the healing process by diligently bottle-feeding her every two to four hours through the night and, of course, providing a ton of TLC. The tiny but mighty Miracle blossomed into an extraordinary kitten, full of personality and spunk, sprinkled with fun and mischief! Her new mom is smitten and we completely understand why!
