Big-eyed kitten hopes one day into people's hearts, hoping for a dream home

A kitten with Sass in her eyes bounced back on her paws and is so happy to get the help she needs to thrive.

Huxley the Torbie (tortoiseshell tabby) was brought to the Anchorage Animal Control (AACC) along with a large number of cats. She came with a variety of health problems and was extremely underweight and frail. AACC staff brought her back from the sidelines but realized that the kitten would need special care in order to thrive.

The blunt-tailed kitten was born with a congenital disease and lives with urinary incontinence. AACC hoped to take them to a rescue that is best equipped for their needs to ensure the quality of life. “They reached out to us to see if we could add them to our Mojo’s Hope program as our mission is to help animals with special needs,” Shannon Basner, founder of Alaska’s KAAATs, told Love Meow .

“They sent her away with all her goodies, a scratching post, scrapers and her favorite toy.”

Shortly after arriving, she received medical treatment for an infection. The torbie was lively and strong-willed from the start. “We put her schedule together to make sure she is comfortable and used to it. She has a big appetite and uses the litter box for her other needs,” Shannon wrote.

Huxley, who is the size of a 4 month old child, is estimated to be at least six months old (which explains her behavior and adult teeth as well).

“The vet also took some x-rays so we could take a look at her spine to see what was causing her incontinence, which is most likely referred to as Manx syndrome,” shared Shannon Love Meow.

Huxley is hopping around (in a plantigrade pose) and needs help several times a day to help her potty. While they continue to monitor their health problems, nothing will stop the Torbie girl from enjoying life.

She is so content and happy with the attention she can get and always on the lookout for mischief. The cute kitten has two big eyes that poke through the atmosphere.

“Huxley is personality plus! She is absolutely cute, playful, loving and full of loving purrs. She is full of bullshit, determination and resilience,” Shannon told Love Meow.

“She came from a complicated situation and was not in good health. Between the care at AACC and her resilience, she persevered.”

Huxley hops around her room as if she owns it. Although she is very small for her age, she does not lack determination and is confident in what she can do. She is quite a hot head and no toy can escape the confines of her territory.

“She loves to play. For a little girl, she’s bigger than life itself. Her charm is expressed when she plays with the crispy ball, the laser light or her favorite ball,” shared Shannon Love Meow.

“She carries the toys around and throws them everywhere.”

Nothing seems to be able to slow down this little ball of energy. Huxley is an accomplished climber and quick on her paws. She has many expressions on her face, ranging from a fierce, powerful look to a goofy, goofy look.

“She is the epitome of joy and added that to our downstairs kitty crew.”

The sweet cake will grow and glow with proper care and a routine that will keep it comfortable and happy.

When she needs a break from playing, she rolls over on her back and immediately goes to sleep.

“We are confident that once we have her on the mend, she can choose a loving home forever – a home ready to put them in their hearts, understand their special needs, and care for them for life must stay happy and healthy. “
