A litter of 8 kittens is found without a mother. They are taken to foster mom Melinda, who names them the botanical babies. The kittens are sick with respiratory infections, and some need to be tube-fed. One kitten sadly passes away, but the others start showing improvement with treatment. The smallest kitten, Zinnia, struggles the most but eventually starts eating on her own. All the kittens get better and Zinnia and her sister find a forever home. Melinda's love and care save the kittens' lives.
