The journey of these two tabby kittens has been a remarkable one ever since they were discovered abandoned on the streets of Kuwait. They were in a pitiable condition, malnourished and gravely ill when Kuwait Animal Aid took them under their wing and provided them with immediate medical assistance. One of the kittens had a genetic anomaly that impacted the right side of her face. Along with them, a third sibling was also discovered, and they were all placed in a foster home where they received round-the-clock care and attention.
With relentless determination, the two siblings named Shiva and Vishnu were able to regain their strength and gain some weight. However, their fellow kitten Amani contracted a viral infection which required immediate isolation and treatment. Despite facing various challenges, the rescue volunteers did not give up on these “unwanted” kittens and continued to provide them with the necessary care and attention.
Shiva, despite having a cleft nose and missing her right eye, didn’t let her physical differences stop her from being playful with her sister. Thanks to the efforts of Kuwait Animal Aid and their partner rescues in the US, these adorable felines were able to find their forever homes in California after a long journey across the ocean.
Anaheim’s Rafiki’s Rescue stepped up to help Shiva get the necessary treatment and diagnosis for her congenital condition. Upon arrival, the kittens immediately struck the rescuers with their affectionate nature, displaying boundless love, joy, and energy. Megan of Rafiki’s Rescue shared this heartwarming story with Love Meow.
Shiva, a rescue kitten, was always full of energy. She would spend the entire night baking biscuits and playing fetch like a dog during the day. However, her boundless energy eventually led us to discover that there was more to her condition than we initially thought. Shiva would become winded rather quickly and start panting while trying to catch her breath. But despite her condition, she remained one of the most playful kittens at the rescue and never let it slow her down.
After conducting a cT scan and consulting with two experts, it was determined that Shiva’s intricate nasal passage cannot be resolved through surgical means. However, the bright side is that Shiva can still enjoy a fulfilling and joyous life. All she requires is regulated playtime and an environment with properly controlled temperature.
The tabby cat with one eye is always living her life to the fullest, unfazed by any challenges that come her way. Her sister, Vishnu, is never too far away and is always making mischief or enjoying some cozy snuggles. It’s clear that Shiva is completely content with her life and can’t imagine it getting any better – she exudes joy on a daily basis.
After rescuing the two feline sisters from the streets and taking them to a different continent, they flourished into stunning young cats and were now on the lookout for their perfect forever home.
This amazing pair bonded over their love for fun and adventure. We gave them the opportunity to try out foster care with the possibility of adoption, and they quickly developed a strong affection for their new family and furry companions.
After receiving excellent care for several months, Amani, the third sibling, had a successful recovery. In addition, she traveled to Rafiki’s Rescue across the ocean. The team couldn’t bear to leave her behind. Recently, Amani has completed her treatment and is now searching for a loving home.
Shiva and Vishnu are experiencing the best of both worlds as they enjoy their happy family life, making their new abode a haven of cozy purrs and cuddles.
