Just like human babies, kittens also need the love and care of their mothers. Without their mother’s affection and attention, these young felines may face various risks even though they are known to be strong and independent creatures.
Uni and Nami, whose names translate to “sea urchin” and “wave” in Japanese, used to reside with their mother beneath the rocks near the Sea of Marmara, located in Istanbul, Turkey. However, one day, their mother abruptly left without any apparent reason, leaving her two daughters behind.
As the younger of the two, I was more innocent and carefree compared to my sister. Our cat quickly became sick after our mother left, and she appeared exhausted and upset. Thankfully, a kind man noticed the situation and decided to help. The rescue was initially challenging as the bicolor kitty was extremely scared and cautious, but the persistent man wasn’t willing to give up on her. He kept coming back every day, and finally, on the fourth day, he successfully lured her with some tasty treats.
The man rushed his cat to a nearby vet clinic with urgency. Upon arrival, he discovered that the cat was suffering from multiple health issues including diarrhea, parasites, and a cold. The cat had to stay at the clinic for an extended period of time and during that difficult period, the man consistently made sure to visit his beloved pet on a daily basis.
The timid cat transformed into a loving and affectionate kitty once she opened up her heart. She enjoyed being petted and would rub herself against her rescuer’s hand, craving attention and love. Eventually, after making a full recovery, she was taken to her rescuer’s home, which became her forever home. To add to this heartwarming story, Uni’s sister, Nami, was also rescued soon after and even went into the carrier herself as if she understood what was happening.
