The Day I Decided to Bring an Orphaned Kitten to Work

To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. – What a beautiful quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson which reminds me that I am here for a reason. How comforting it is to think that we cause others, especially those who have no chances at all, to continue living. Today, I decided to bring an orphaned kitten to work.

Just so you know, the latest addition to our care is a 2-week old kitten who just opened her eyes the other day. She was a cute and tiny pebble whom the apartment guard rescued last week and gave to us. Without hesitation, we accepted her and said yes to reduced number of sleeping hours. Because she was orphaned and just a few weeks old, extra efforts are needed to feed and stimulate her so she will survive. That includes keeping her warm all the time and feeding her every 4-5 hours. Letting her survive is not easy, but it’s not impossible.

The Day We Found the Kitten

This is how tiny she was when she first arrived at the house last October 3, 2020. We knew right away that this tiny furball was brought with a desperate need of motherly love.

Feeding and Stimulating the Kitten

Below is a clip showing the feeding and stimulation of the kitten. This is usually done every 4-5 hours. Thanks to Kitten Lady for her helpful videos of taking care cats.

The Day I Decided to Bring an Orphaned Kitten to Work

Since businesses are trying to go back to normal, one of the strategies that our company is practicing is the alternating workforce so that not everyone will be meeting at the office at the same time. That means there are days where we will be working from home. Since today is the first day of going back to the office with the new kitten, I decided to bring an orphaned kitten to work, so she could get her meal and care every several hours.

Our office is generally very quiet, except when my two office mates are making or taking calls. I fed her today at 11 am and 3 pm, and this little bundle of joy filled the room with the most precious sounds. Gladly, she is only making these squeaky meows when she has to be fed and stimulated. What I love about her is in the office, most of the day, she is asleep.

Our Purr-fect Little Helper

Watching her sleep keeps all the stresses away. I do believe that every office could use some help from a kitty. She’s a purr-fect little helper!

One thing is for sure, this is not the first and last I’m gonna bring her to the office.

So darn sweet! The kittie is lucky to have you in its life. Taking a kittie to work would be great for comfort during the workday.

Awwww, she is so adorable. It’s so worth the work! We saved a cat that was just about the same age. The first night was crazy rough and we thought he had died, but all of a sudden he sprang up and was good from then on. We named him Crash, though, because he would go from running to literally falling asleep instantly in the middle of running. They were probably some type of seizure but there weren’t really any after effects. We ended up keeping him for the rest of his life. He only lived to 11 years old… Read more »

Such a cute kitten! I actually have 4 kittens right now. They are 6 weeks old now, and they do have their mother, but it has been an interesting experience. They have been with me since birth.
