Someone Saved A "Kitten" — Then Realized She's Definitely Not A Kitten!

People who volunteer at shelters or animal rescues typically have a rough job. Not only do they have to deal with the heartbreaking reality of neglected animals, but they also have to deal with aggressive animals. The Belgian volunteers quickly learned that their job can also send them on crazy adventures just to figure out what kind of animal it is that they're handling.

Martine Vos didn't hesitate to help when she was called about a kitten that needed rescuing. She didn't realize at the time that this wasn't an ordinary kitten. Once she decided to figure out the truth, she was met with quite a shock - one that she'll remember forever.

Marine absolutely adores cats and spends a lot of her time volunteering at her local shelter in Genk, Belgium. One evening in April, Marine received a call from the shelter. The Cat Shelter, in the nearby town of Limburg, had received a call about a kitten in immediate need of help. But the place where the kitten was found was closer to Genk than Limburg. The shelter asked Marine to help and she didn't hesitate for a second.

The man who called the shelter in Limburg told them that he had found an extremely young kitten that needed to be picked up. Even though they sent their own volunteer, Martine got there first because she lived closer. As soon as she saw the kitten she realized it was probably less than a week old. But where was mama cat?

Martine and the man looked all over the area where they found the kitten to see if they could find its mother or any siblings. A kitten that young should remain with its mother because she can nurse them until they are old enough to eat food on its own. Sadly, they couldn't seem to find any other cat in the area. Martine would have to take the kitten by itself.

Martine took the time to inspect the kitten. She wanted to make sure that it didn't have any infections or injuries. That's when she realized something was a bit off. This kitten was unlike any other kitten she had ever met. "When I took the baby in my hands, she seemed really big and it felt totally different how a kitten should feel," said Marine. The kitten's appearance was pretty different, as well.
