The little feline was incredibly small, prompting concerns about his survival. However, he proved to be surprisingly resilient and strong, leaving everyone astonished.

Meet Sebastian, a tiny kitten who was brought into the care of Penny Richards, a foster volunteer for the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, around two months ago. Along with two other kittens, Sebastian required constant attention and care, but he was especially small and weak. Penny noticed right away that Sebastian was about half the size of his sisters, and he appeared to be in poor health, with bulging eyes and very little energy. However, despite his dire condition, Sebastian managed to find the strength to eat and fight for his survival.

When the cat was saved, he was in a terrible condition. Penny was amazed to see that he could suckle milk from a bottle and consume three milliliters on his own despite his fragile state. Usually, kittens in such a situation are too feeble to eat. This act of strength displayed his determination to survive and fight alongside Penny.

Sebastian, the youngest sibling, was notably tinier compared to his sisters. However, he had an exceptional fighting spirit that made him eat smaller meals all day long. In just one day, Sebastian showed remarkable progress as he started to snuggle into his blanket during feeding time. He would even crawl around and climb on his sisters while in the incubator. Despite being treated for infections, Sebastian consistently made gains and had a significant improvement in his energy levels. He even developed an appetite and began to search for food.

Sebastian’s main goal after his arrival was to improve his health by eating and growing stronger. He hoped to get better so that he could spend time playing with his sisters, Annette and Kathryn. After just one week, Sebastian had succeeded in more than doubling his weight. His improved appearance included clear eyes and a plump belly, which made him look much happier. It was evident that Sebastian put in a lot of effort to achieve this rotund body and an energized spirit.

Annette, Kathryn, and Sebastian were the adorable trio under foster care. Sebastian was always the quickest to demand his mealtime and would eagerly purr and roll around for some much-needed affection. At 4-5 weeks old, his striking flame and cream points began to show, and his charming personality was already in full bloom.

As soon as he’s lifted up, Sebastian starts purring and happily rubs his face all over me. It’s adorable to see how much he enjoys being held. He quickly made friends with Blaine, another kitten who was rescued from the outdoors all by themselves. Blaine was thrilled to finally have some furry companions to snuggle with.

Sebastian has a fondness for socializing and longs to be everyone’s pal. He engages in playful antics and frolics around with his kitten peers, embracing them tightly during their nap time.
According to Penny, “Sebastian made his entrance at barely a week old and weighed about the same as a tiny newborn. Despite being on the smaller side now, I am immensely proud of how far he has come,” she confided in Love Meow.

Sebastian is always purring, even when he’s sharing Penny’s lap with his sisters and foster friends. He loves to cuddle and rub his face on his foster mom while looking into her eyes. It’s possible that Sebastian has an extra appreciation for life due to his difficult early days.
