This kitten insisted on staying with the family that helped it grow up.

The one-week-old kittens were taken to a shelter in Montreal, Canada, where a team of volunteers cared for them because they needed to be fed 24 hours a day. Of the kittens in the same litter, the ginger kittens were much smaller and struggled to grow.


Jess, an experienced rescuer, stepped in to help. She took the kitten home, started feeding it through a tube, kept it warm and stayed with it for 24 hours.

She didn’t know if the kitten would survive, but she couldn’t help but try. After working tirelessly, the kitten managed to pull through and began to improve.

The ginger kitten named “Baby Mars” was finally able to eat without a tube. He was still very small and had to be fed with a syringe. Nonetheless, he does his best to fill his belly at every meal.

Our plan is to make sure the kittens grow up healthy and are able to be adopted by good people. A local rescue organization, Chatons Orphelins Montréal, helped and took in the kittens.

Jess took good care of the kitten. She fed it every few hours, kept it warm and gave it love. It saved its life,” Céline Crome of Chatons Orphelins in Montreal told Love Meow.

Once baby Mars stood up on his paws, he tried to waddle over to his food, eager to eat. The kitten’s weight is finally keeping up.

Coralie, a foster volunteer at Chatons Orphelins Montréal, welcomed the little guy into her home. She takes the kitten with her everywhere she goes to make sure it doesn’t miss a meal.

After a good meal, this adorable kitten makes little cookies on a soft blanket and then sleeps peacefully. He is always content as long as his foster parents are around.

Coralie didn’t plan on getting a new cat when she got this kitten. She wanted to let the kittens recover and find them a place of their own when they were ready. But little Ginger had a different idea.

Throughout the journey, Baby Mars became Cory’s little follower, following her wherever she went. During naps, he would curl up on her lap or in her arms.

Now that he’s all grown up, the rambunctious ginger tabby fights the other cats in the house. This brave ball of energy is the king of the mountain when it comes to playtime.

After romping around the house, this kitten goes to her foster mom and snuggles up next to her for some quiet time and bonding.

Her little purr and big eyes are very convincing. Sometimes she would stare at her humans until she got what she wanted – a hug.

It didn’t take long for Baby Mars to make her way into the hearts of foster families. When it came time to foster, Coralie knew this kitten had made a choice she couldn’t refuse.

At three months old, Mars was officially adopted by his foster family. It was a match made in heaven,” Celine told Love Meow.

The fluffy kitten has graduated from the foster program and is now starting a new chapter with his forever family.
