Miracle Kitten Enya Gets Second Chance After Being At The Brink Of Death


This is a story you’ll have to read to believe.  And make sure that you watch the video below.   It’s the story of Enya who is now being called the miracle kitten.  We want to thank the “Bakersfieldcatpeople” for providing this amazing narrative.  Enjoy!

In early May, a kitten on death’s door step was brought to The Cat People. The little tabby with a touch of orange on her sweet face was emaciated, flea ridden, and could no longer walk. When I first saw her, I was devastated. She was in a box lined with a soft blanket, panting with her eyes closed. I contacted Barb because I felt the kitten needed to be put to sleep. I can’t stand watching an animal suffer.

Just as Barb and I were texting, the little kitten raised its head and open its eyes. I was shocked. Then, she pushed her front legs up, holding her wobbly head up in a sitting position. I couldn’t believe my eyes! This kitten was trying to tell me she didn’t want to give up. I immediately grabbed water and NutriCal, and slowly dropped some water onto her tongue. To my amazement, the little kitten lapped up the water I gave her. I careful placed some NutriCal gel in her mouth, and she swallowed it right up. After I repeated the process a few times, the little kitten laid back down to rest.

I kept her with me all night. Every hour I would give her fluids and gel. By the end of the evening, her breathing had regulated, and she looked much more comfortable. I woke up every hour that night to continue the process. It was exhausting, but this little kitten was such a fighter that I owed her every chance possible to survive. The little touch of orange hair on her head represented the mark of fire. She had a fire burning in her soul to stay alive and see a better future in which she is cared for and loved. I named her Enya which means “little fire.”

The next morning, Barb took the kitten to the vet hospital. She got fluids, worm treatment, and special high calorie food. The kitten appeared to be the size of a two week old kitten, but the vet said she was at least six weeks old.

The kitten continued to get stronger every day. She started eating on her own after a couple days, and by the third day she was purring again. She built the muscle back up in her body and can now walk, run and play like a normal kitten. I have never seen such a young animal with a stronger will to live.

Little Enya will remain in foster care with me until she is big enough for adoptions. She enjoys hanging out with Mr. Lake and playing with my chihuahuas. She really is one of a kind.
