Found alone on the sidewalk, her paws burned from the hot surface, a tiny kitten is rescued in Hawkesbury, Ontario, and quickly rushed to Foster Mom, Melissa, of Tiny But Mighty Kitten Rescue weighing only 82 grams. Melissa had a plan to place the kitten, named Janie, in an incubator for 2 weeks, bottle-feed her around the clock, and when she was proven to be medically clear, introduce her to a cat mom, named June, who was rescued as a pregnant cat a few weeks prior. And that’s exactly what happened.
Because of all the support Janie received from both Melissa and June, Janie not only survived she grew into a strong healthy cat. One that is now adored by legions of fans all over the world. People could not help but fall in love with her. Both because of her story and also because of her unusual coat. It turns out the unusual silver coloration on her fur is a result of her mother being ill while she was pregnant! Known as a “fever coat” it causes no danger to the kitten, however, she will probably lose it when she gets older.
So sit back and relax and enjoy some amazing photos of this adorable little kitten who beat the odds.
#1. Look at me I’m in my first ever home!
#2. Such big paws!
“Janie was found all alone on a sidewalk. The people who found her told me she was screaming for her life. She was left in the full sun which resulted in some pretty bad burns on her back paws,” said Mellissa.
#3. Just too cute!
#4: So nice to have a full tummy.
#5: My new Mom, June, and my new brothers and sisters.
#6: Hanging with my big sister.
#7: I might look a toy, but I am real!

Melissa was quick to point out that Janie had caught Moma June’s attention well before they were formally introduced. June would watch Melissa feeding June quite anxiously, clearly wanting to help out.
“June immediately accepted Janie as her own as soon as I was able to safely introduce them. June had to lick and clean her for a good 10 minutes, and then she cuddled up with everyone while June’s babies were nursing. It was such a sweet moment to witness.”

“The best part of rescuing is watching my foster babies grow and thrive in my care. It’s extremely rewarding!” the founder of the Tiny but Mighty Kitten Rescue said.”
