Kittens kept each other going strong as they purred their way to a chance at a better life.

About a month ago, Caroline Grace, the founder of Baby Kitten Rescue (in Los Angeles), was informed about a pair of tiny tabbies needing urgent help.
A young feral cat was brought into an emergency vet hospital with a pregnant belly and a severe infection. She gave birth to a litter of four, but only two pulled through. Due to the cat’s poor health and need for medical treatment, she was unable to care for her kittens.
“The vet determined that the mom would not be able to nurse in her state,” Caroline shared with Love Meow. “We picked up the kittens from the vet hospital that night and got them home and in an incubator.”

The two siblings, Chandler and Monica, arrived in rough shape–dehydrated, cold and in need of a lot of TLC. They kept each other strong through the following days in intensive care. Despite being just palm-sized, they showed so much grit and fight.
After five days, the kittens regained strength and appetite, and were transferred to another foster volunteer, Pei Chiu, to continue their care. Chandler and Monica were like two peas in a pod the whole time.

“My first impression of them on my drive home was ‘these babies got lungs,'” Pei shared with Love Meow. “In my first hour of being with them, I knew they had spunk and was in for a very vocal, communicative duo.”
