Murphy the tiny kitten was found alone at just two-three days old as the sole survivor of his litter. His chances of survival were slim to none without the care and warmth of his mother and siblings, but thanks to a doting foster caretaker in central Oklahoma, Murphy has been on the road to recovery!

Murphy quickly took to his tiny bottle, guzzling down formula. His foster mom, named Rachael, shared on Instagram, “He gained an entire ounce in our first 24 hours together. He’s purry, snuggly and happy.”

There was a time when it looked like Murphy may not live, but Rachael did not give up, providing him with around-the-clock care and nursing him back to health.
