Woman Finds A Tiny Kitten, Freezing And Alone, But Stops At Nothing To Help Him Survive

A young couple had been sitting at home on a rainy day, when they noticed a small sound and a rustle in the grass.

Not certain what would emerge, Rachael called out to the creature as it approached them. Out from the wet grass emerged a tiny tuxedo kitten - completely drenched from the rain and shivering cold.

She picked the little baby up and immediately pressed him to her skin. They looked around, but saw no mother cat nearby, so they brought him into the house to get warm and dry.

"My boyfriend immediately fell in love and said "I need this animal." And he certainly seemed to need us!" says Rachael.

Although the couple was able to warm the little one up, he quickly became hypoglycemic from malnourishment. They rushed the baby to the nearest emergency animal hospital and sought immediate treatment.

The little kitten was so sickly, that he had to stay at the hospital for three days. The vets didn't think he would survive, but the tiny kitten (now named Morrie) pulled through.

Rachael and her boyfriend, Brendon visited every day after work and eagerly brought him home to receive 24/7 TLC. The love of his new family helped Morrie to recover.

"The vets really didn't think he would make it! He is our little miracle and what my boyfriend and I are calling the start of our family."

Obviously in love with their new little fur baby, the couple have no regrets despite the huge vet bills they racked up to save his life:

"(I) gave my whole paycheck to the animal hospital to save his guy. Worth it," Rachael said. "I work at a Children's Home - I do my best to help humans and animals!"

Rachael explains that the couple chose the name Morrie because he was found on a Tuesday and he seemed wise. He was named after author Mitch Albom's popular novel, Tuesdays With Morrie.

"Morrie is already wearing a tuxedo so he's ready for the wedding," Rachael said. "This little fur baby symbolizes the start of our life together. I couldn't be more lucky."
