When Melissa of Tiny But Mighty Kitten Rescue in Cornwall, Ontario was contacted about a tiny kitten found on a sidewalk, she immediately offered to help. She was already fostering a pregnant stray, and after bottle feeding the orphaned kitten for two weeks, the nursing mom accepted the kitten and took care of her as one of her own. The kitten’s unusual coloring is actually known as “fever coat.” Fever (or stress) coat occurs when the mother cat is ill with a high fever or stress during pregnancy. It doesn’t usually have any negative effects on the kitten’s overall health, and the coat will eventually change to show their true colors.
