When Winifred was born, she was the size of a thumb. She was so tiny that even her own mother rejected her, choosing to focus on the other cats in the litter.
Winifred was considered a micro-kitten, and no one really expected her to survive. She was half the size of a normal kitten. She was brought to a clinic where Ellen Carozza, licensed veterinary technician, immediately fell in love with her. She took Winifred in as a foster, giving her special care.
"I was asked to take her on since all of my neonate work is with the highly complicated cases, I also have an incubator as well," Ellen said.
Ellen began to notice that whenever Winifred was happy, she'd stick her little tongue out. She shows off her little 'blep' as it's affectionately known in the cat world whenever she's content!
"She is a pro at sticking her tongue out! She did this since being a small baby and we laugh each time she still does it," says Ellen.
Winifred continued to stick her tongue out as a kitten, and even does it still as an adult!
