Babies are supposed to be cuddled and cared for in the first days of their lives. But when we rescued Tulip as a kitten, she was tragically orphaned and covered in maggots. Before we got there maggots were eating at her skin with no one there to protect her. When we found her frail little body we immediately stepped in and became her protector. She was only two days old at the time and was barely breathing. This girl was such a fighter and even though we've had many emergency hospitalizations since then, Tulip made it and recently celebrated her 6 month birthday. Birthday present? An amazing family she can call her own!
