The Story of Titan, the Tiny Kitten Who Lived

Let us tell you the story of Titan!  Imagine finding a tiny kitten not much larger than a PENNY. That is exactly what happened when this wee kitten was found, weighing in at only 40g.  The odds of a kitten this small actually making it is incredibly low.

The person who found it said she couldn’t believe something so tiny could still be alive, and took photos to show her vet because she was too scared to move the tiny kitten around.

Look at this Tiny Kitten!

A vet told her not to get her hopes up, as they’d never seen a kitten that small before. She had to come to terms with the fact that the tiny kitten probably wouldn’t make it, but decided to give it her best shot, and good thing she did!

The kitten was named Titan, so that he could live or die as a Titan. She and her boyfriend then took shifts feeding the kitten every hour, stimulating his bowels and making sure he stayed comfortable. At this point, the tiny kitten never made any noise and could barely move around.

A Fragile Start…

In fact, once when the kitten tried to move, he dislocated his two front legs! The girl who found him wondered if she wasn’t doing the right thing by trying to keep him alive.

But finally, on Day 8, she woke up at 3am to hearing the tiny kitten meowing.

She was confused at first because she didn’t know if the tiny kitten was dying or meowing in pain as he’d never made a sound before. It turns out that he was simply hungry! When she started to syringe feed him formula, he started howling for more. 🙂 He grabbed the syringe with both of his teeny tiny feet and ate with more enthusiasm than she’d ever seen.

After that moment, she said he meowed for food every moment that he was awake. Gosh. Look at his sweet face!

They spent the next two weeks barely sleeping and often forgetting to eat just to make sure this sweet guy was taken care of, and to give him the very best chance of surviving.

Around this time, they finally realized that Titan was actually a little lady! When she opened her eyes, it was the most amazing feeling. She was still very underweight and underdeveloped, but was so full of life and always wanting food and attention.
