Kathryn Van Beek was walking home in the pouring rain when a tiny creature caught her attention. At first she thought it was a rat. But she soon realized it was a helpless kitten. Unable to find his mother, she scooped him up and brought him home.

Kathryn named him Bruce, after Bruce Wayne (aka Batman). He was found with his umbilical cord still attached and was just one day old.
He needed to be fed around the clock by hand.
Here’s a video of Bruce at just a week old. He’s got the tiniest, quietest purr.
At 12 days old he just wanted to sleep in daddy’s hands.
Eventually, he did open his eyes and soon he was standing and eating on his own.
Bruce got stronger and stronger with all the love and care he was receiving.
Soon he was strong enough to start doing kitten things.
Slowly but surely he grew into a very handsome cat.
Now he’s all grown up, it’s hard to believe he nearly died at a day old.
Thanks to Kathryn, Bruce survived and is one happy and loved cat!
