A year ago, a very unusual kitten entered the life of Amanda Kruszynski, who has been working as a volunteer at an animal shelter for five years.
And he changed Amanda’s life in a way she never expected.
It all started when a tortoiseshell cat with a litter of kittens was brought to an animal shelter in Broward County, Florida (USA). Someone left the cat and kittens outside in a large cardboard box and found them in the rain when the animals got very wet.
Amanda met the newcomers to the orphanage the next morning.
”The mother cat tested positive for FIV (feline immunodeficiency) but was otherwise fine. Three of her kittens were as fluffy as their mother, but one looked very special.
He had a mutation that cat breeders call the Devon Rex. Most likely, the father of the kittens was of this breed.
The Devon Rex’s coat is very short and at the same time grows in small curls. Their antennae are also curled, and their ears are very large. In appearance, Devon Rex kittens are very similar to cute plush toys.
Amanda offered her help in caring for the kittens and, among other things, the very unusual kitten, which was given the nickname Meeseeks, came into her care.
Amanda took the kitten to her home and soon he became so attached to her that he began to follow her like a tail.
A couple of weeks later, tests came for a dangerous viral disease – panleukopenia, and it was revealed in all kittens in the litter. For such small kittens, panleukopenia is very often fatal.
For a whole week, Amanda watched and looked after the kittens day and night, giving them medicines, and the whole brood managed to cope with this disease, even tiny Meeseeks! And he became even more attached to Amanda.
Soon all the kittens were ready to be adopted into permanent families and Amanda faced a difficult decision. She became so closely attached to the “plush” cat that she could not part with him.
A year has passed since the kitten Meeseeks got to Amanda. Amanda adores him and says that she has a very close bond with him.
