The feline was overjoyed to have some quality time with a recently taken-in kitten found at the automobile showroom. It’s impossible not to fall in love with these adorable creatures!
About a month ago, Erica Whitsell, who is not only a veterinary technician but also an advocate for kitten rescue, was contacted urgently for help. Someone had discovered a kitten all alone at a car dealership, and the mother was nowhere to be found. The people who found the kitten waited and watched in the hope that the mother would come back, but unfortunately, she never did. As soon as Erica heard about the situation, she sprang into action and took the kitten into her own care. She commended the finders for their quick thinking and decision to get help and wasted no time in tending to the little furball’s needs.
While exploring a car lot, Erica Whitsell discovered an adorable little kitten she named Parker. However, it was apparent that Parker, at only 5-6 days old, was severely underweight and smaller than the typical newborn cat. It seemed that Parker had not been receiving proper nourishment, and her condition was alarming. Initially hesitant to care for such a delicate creature, Erica ensured that Parker had a cozy bed to rest in and began feeding her every few hours with a bottle.
Erica Whitsell is experiencing a sense of relief as her infant, Parker, has successfully grasped the skill of latching onto the bottle and consuming formula. With enthusiasm, the baby is devouring the nutritious milk, and Erica is optimistic that this eagerness will assist him in making up for any meals he may have missed.
Upon waking up, Parker found herself in an unfamiliar setting, which was a new and exciting experience for her. The household’s calico cat, Phoebe, became curious and observant upon hearing the sounds of a new kitten. Although they had not been introduced yet, Phoebe kept a close eye on the young feline from outside its enclosure, demonstrating genuine concern and eagerness towards the latest family member.
Erica Whitsell stated that Phoebe used to spend extended periods of time near Parker’s pen, observing her intently as she began to crawl and move around more. Phoebe was enthralled by her little companion and eagerly anticipated the day when Parker would become large enough to play outside of her pen.
Erica Whitsell has reported that Parker made significant progress during his two-week stay in foster care. He became more energetic and actively participated in playing with his new friend, displaying no shyness or hesitation. Phoebe, who met Parker for the first time during this period, was thrilled with the meeting.
Love Meow interviewed Erica Whitsell and learned that upon meeting Parker, Phoebe immediately displayed a great deal of compassion and warmth towards him. Erica mentioned that Phoebe has been mentoring Parker on how to behave like a typical kitten since he was raised by humans without any feline siblings. This includes learning how to play appropriately and interpret the non-verbal communication of other cats.
With the nurturing support of her foster mother and the constant motivation from Phoebe, Parker has accomplished remarkable achievements. Along with indulging in thrilling activities, they often take breaks for a warm embrace, ultimately drifting into a serene slumber.
Erica is currently observing as Phoebe, her cat, teaches her new kitten about the importance of setting boundaries. The kitten seems to be very energetic, but Erica is handling the situation with remarkable composure and showing Parker how to socialize with other felines in an appropriate manner.
