Stuart Little, the littlest of them all, was discovered alongside his brothers and sisters — all of whom were in bad shape and needed immediate assistance. A kind Samaritan brought them into Fabulous Felines NWA, a cat rescue organization in Bentonville, Ark., hoping to save their lives. And good thing they did.
If the kittens were out there all on their own for any longer, they might never have made it. Upon seeing Stuart Little — who weighed under three ounces, while his siblings were about nine ounces — staff members thought he was dead! The little guy was so sick they had to make sure he got the medical attention he needed, including getting prescription drops for his eye infections.
Stuart Little, indeed, was little and he resembled more of the mouse he was named after than any kitten. But, this strong kitten pulled through and grew bigger and healthier each day. Here he is at five weeks old with a fellow sibling and his surrogate mother, Bessie:
Stuart kept growing and by three months old, he was almost the size of an average kitten:
Now, Stuart Little is not so little any more. He is a fully grown and happy cat:
