Moses the Cat Becomes an Internet Sensation

Via ABC News - Bobbi and Mark and Meg and Clay are the two sets of neighbors who, one day in early April, heard squeals from inside the carport of Meg and Clay’s home. What the couples discovered was a kitten so small they hardly knew what it was.

“He looked like a little mouse,” Mark said of their 4-in., 4 oz. discovery. “None of us had ever seen a kitten that small.”

The foursome quickly realized that this kitten, who they named Moses, was the now-orphaned kitten of a stray cat that had recently been hit by a car near their respective homes.

Mark and his fiancĂ©, Bobbi, decided to take the kitten home and nurse him back to health, using syringes and a bottle to try to feed him. The vet told the couple he was only “cautiously optimistic” that Moses would survive.

Still, Mark and Bobbi committed themselves to Moses’s care and they didn’t stop there. They decided that Moses’s story was so amazing it should be shared and, with Meg and Clay, created the Moses the Cat blog to document his recovery.

“We thought the story of this orphaned kitten being raised without a mother was really cool and figured our friends and family would enjoy keeping up with his progress,” Mark explained.

Once the blog was up and running, word of mouth spread and friends and family grew to hundreds of readers, hundreds of views on Moses’s YouTube page and even a shout-out from celebrity fans.

The blog has tracked Moses’s every miraculous milestone, from opening his eyes and going to the bathroom on his own to taking his first steps, eating on his own and becoming a normal, frisky kitten.

  1. Ooooh, TW's BF's Dad nursed their first cat from a couple of days old. Daiquiri lived to see her 19th birthday. And, yes, Dad nursed the kitty with whiskey and milk, hence the name.

    1. That kitty would have made a great anipal! ;-)

    2. What a great story. I'm going over there right now. Thanks for bringing this amazing story to our attention,
