A Tiny Kitten Wanders into a Couple's Life and Captivates Their Hearts

In California, a tiny kitten named Lavender was taken to the Front Street Shelter as an orphaned newborn in need of a bottle feeder. The kitten was discovered by Haley Waugh, who worked for the shelter and had recently lost two special needs animals she had tirelessly cared for.

When one of her co-workers held the kitten up in front of her, Haley gently placed the delicate baby into the front pocket of her overall, and the kitten snuggled right in. Haley felt a sense of ease that she hadn’t had in weeks, and she knew she was taking the kitten home to foster.

For the first 24 hours, Lavender would hiss and spit at any new scent. The next morning, her walls came down when she realized Haley was there to provide food and love. Her hisses were diminished and replaced with squeaks and meows.

Despite her small size, Lavender had an abundance of energy and an affectionate personality. She would often lie on her back with her belly exposed, paws up in the air while sticking out her tongue or showing off her tiny teeth. When she tired herself out, she would settle next to a resident cat or dog and knead away on a soft blanket or sunbathe by the window.

After several months of fostering Lavender, Haley realized that she could not let go of her, and Lavender became an official member of the family. Lavender has helped foster other animals and is loved by everyone in the household.
