Couple take in one small and helpless kitten and see him grow with the help of a cat

Becca and Nathan, volunteers with Nashville Cat Rescue, were approached about a pair of kittens in need of assistance.

They were discovered beneath a home, with no sign of their mother.

The discoverers took them in and attempted to bottle-feed them, but quickly discovered that they required specialist care.

Phil (gray) and Rory (calico) were hurried to Nashville Cat Rescue to be hand-reared 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Phil, the younger of the two, had all the odds stacked against him at just one-week-old.

At the time, the couple was caring for a nursing cat and her own litter of three kittens.

They wanted to try placing the orphaned kittens with the mother.

Since they knew, Phil had difficulty eating and was in critical need of nutrients.

Murph embraced the two new newcomers without hesitation and began to care for them as if they were her own.

Rory soon latched on and joyfully breastfed away.

Phil was still frail, but he was glad to have a mother who lavished him with licks and warmth.

He nestled up close to her and slept off.

The couple started tube-feeding Phil every three hours, medicated both of them for digestive difficulties, and provided supportive care.

Phil adored every one-on-one time with Mama Murph, snuggling up and soaking up all the affection.
