Baby Tiger Finds A Home

Who could resist this adorable little face?

It seems quite a few people could. The kitten was lying on a Malaysian street barely able to move with an injured leg and too weak to make a sound. Mother cat was nowhere to be found and pedestrians were passing her by.

Then Jieyan Ow came along. Jieyan had little experience of cats at but knew she couldn't leave the kitten to die in the street. She scooped her up and took her home.

The kitten was only about three weeks old and weighed just 260g (9oz). Jieyan took a crash course in caring for kittens, looking for advice on the internet. She tried to begin a regime of round-the-clock feeding but at first the little bundle was too scared to drink milk.

Soon, though, the kitten - which Jieyan named Baby Tiger - started to perk up and tucked in to some food. Soon she was purring for the first time.

The vet treated her leg which healed well.

Now Baby Tiger is part of the family. Jieyan said: "She has big round eyes, purrs a lot and demands attention all the time. She needs to be cuddled to sleep every day."

Here's a video of Baby Tiger. I hope you love it as much as I did.

  1. I had heard that in Indonesia and the neighbouring areas that dogs and cats are mistreated and ignored. I am so happy for this lady’s heart to take I; this beautiful kitten with the tiny moustache which reminds me of the famous actors of the past..Clark Gable, Douglas Fairbanks Jnr and Errol Flynn.

    1. He does look like those actors. Thanks for the connection!

  2. That's sad that so many people passed that kitten by. I can't understand it.

    1. I don't think it would have happened in a lot of countries. Well, hopefully not.
