Roscoe was only 4 days old when a member of the public spotted him, alone in the middle of nowhere. The individual did not find his mother and littermates nearby.
So he contacted Nikki Martinez and Foster Grandpaa couple invested in rescuing cats.
“He was so small… I always worry about newborns without a mom. His eyes were still closed and his ears still folded. His umbilical cord had become infected.explained the Good Samaritan to lovemeow.
A fight at its height
Nikki and Foster therefore integrated the newborn into their home. They put him in an incubator because he was too young to regulate his temperature on his own.
Likewise, they took turns to feed Roscoe by bottle every 2 hours, 24 hours a day.
“We were exhausted from the feedings. I had never felt the effects of jet lag before without even leaving the country. But Roscoe is worth it”said Foster.
After a week of constant attention, the baby opened her eyes. His little round belly testified to the fact that he had gained strength and his long naps of several hours showed that he felt at ease in his environment.
“Once he started to get bigger, I was more confident about his future”reported Nikki.
Roscoe has indeed shown unparalleled resilience. And he started exploring the 4 corners of his cozy nest on his frail legs.
Today, Roscoe is no longer in danger. Thanks to the dedication of his rescuers, he took enough of the beast’s fur to face the world outside his hatchery.
Likewise, he begins to eat cat food and to meet his congeners to perfect his socialization.
He will only be offered for adoption when the veterinarian gives him his certificate of aptitude for crazy adventures in a loving home.
