Adopted from Pet Guardian, VA.

We ended up taking that kitten home with us that night. The whole litter had been abandoned by the mother and was being hand raised. He was very tiny as he was only seven weeks old. Two days passed, and I realized that our new baby was sick so we took him to the vet. Well, he ended up being a she--to my delight! But our little girl, Grace, was indeed very sick. In fact, if we had waited to go to the vet, we might have lost her to pneumonia and viral infection. After we got her better from the initial illness, she had several severe eye infections, and we were concerned she had herpes. I am happy to say that a year and a half later she is the most happy and healthy girl!! She has been the most wonderful addition to our family! Thank you, Petfinder, for helping wonderful and deserving animals become cherished family pets. We are so happy to have our Grace, and it's all because of
