There are many who don’t have a kitten’s chance in surviving the cold outdoors, let alone finding a loving human family especial on a busy road, but this little guy survived all the odds!
This newborn kitten got separated from his mother, but was lucky enough to be found by a woman as she was passing by. This kind woman in Australia rescued him and gave him a new family!
When they rescued him, he was very tiny and no larger than a hand!
Kathryn van Beek named her new kitten Bruce. They both live in Kingsland, Auckland. He was only a tiny ball of rain-soaked fur when she saw him crawling down the roadside.
Bruce quickly warmed up to his new family!
Kathryn checked with her neighbors first, but no one claimed the kitten. He was a newborn, not a day old, and still had his umbilical cord attached.
The poor frail kitten needed feeding, but this loving family knew just what to do!
Newborn kittens often don’t survive their first days without their mother, but Bruce was tough. He was given kitten milk through a syringe. His new humans cared for him around the clock.
Dad even decided to help feed the kitten too!
Bruce had to be fed every two hours. For his human family, it was just like getting up in the middle of the night to feed a newborn human.
It didn’t take long until he was fast asleep, warm, happy and with his new family!
Bruce quickly settled into his new home, and gained strength.
Little newborn kitten gives his new human a hug.

Furry cuddles with this adorable kitten just don’t get any better than this!
Little Bruce nearly died on the roadside, but thanks to his rescuers, he now enjoys his loving humans and is getting bigger each day!
