In a heartwarming story, a kitten named Beanie Baby has captured the hearts of foster parents and animal lovers everywhere. Beanie Baby was initially bottle-raised by another foster parent and is currently being weaned and litter box trained. However, he has a unique way of eating, as he hasn't learned to chomp and lick yet. Instead, he sucks on wet food as he would a nipple, earning him the title of a "meat nurser."
Despite his unconventional eating habits, Beanie Baby is an adorable and playful kitten. At around 5 weeks old, he has a fluffy coat and loves darting around and playing with toys. However, being a singleton, he tends to attack human hands and feet, which is why it's important to have toys nearby to redirect his energy.
While singletons like Beanie Baby can be a handful, they also face challenges in learning certain cat behaviors. For example, Beanie Baby is still learning how to drink water and eat crunchy food. Without siblings to copy, it may take singletons a bit longer to figure these things out. This highlights the importance of adopting young kittens in pairs, as they can teach and learn from each other.
The shelter that Beanie Baby is currently being fostered through has a pre-adoption program that requires kittens to be adopted in pairs. This ensures that they have a kitten friend to learn from, play with, and cuddle with. For foster parents, this gives them peace of mind knowing that their kittens are set up for success and will live a happy life with a best friend.
Now, Beanie Baby is officially available for pre-adoption with another kitten. This critical stage in his development, at around 6 weeks old, emphasizes the importance of emotional and social interaction with other kittens. By adopting Beanie Baby with another kitten, families can provide him with the companionship and learning experiences he needs to thrive.
The bond between kittens is truly special, and when you witness the fun, comfort, cuteness, and joy they bring to each other and their human families, it's hard to imagine having a solo kitty again. So, if you're considering adopting a kitten, remember the power of adopting in pairs and the positive impact it can have on their lives.
Beanie Baby is eagerly waiting for his forever home, and with the love and care of a kitten friend, he will surely bring endless happiness to his new family. To get a taste of his cuteness, check out the adorable photos and updates on his foster parent's Instagram page at @fosterbubbies.
