Happy Birthday Bean!

May 01, 2015

On the 1st of May 2014, a tiny bundle arrived at our rehoming centre wrapped in a towel and fighting for his life. Bean's mother was pregnant when she was killed by dogs, and he was the only kitten to survive the brutal attack so I was determined to do anything I could to help. I took Bean home that night (expecting the worst) and today he turned one year old! This is a look back at the first year of his life and the amazing journey that he and I have been on together.

Bean at a few hours old - he was small enough to fit in the palm of my hand

We immediately warmed Bean up with a hot water bottle and fed him formula milk

At 5 weeks old he was a bit of a heartbreaker!

He was cheeky and playful at 2 months old

Happy 1st birthday Bean! I'm very happy we could share our hand rearing journey and pleased to say that Bean has definitely found his happy ending after a terrible start.
