A tiny tuxedo kitten came into the care of Sarah Kelly, the founder of Murphy’s Law Animal Rescue in North Carolina. She was found wandering the streets alone. A concerned passerby heard her meowing and spotted the little ball of fur near an air conditioner.
The kitten’s cries that day were uncontrollable; the rain had brought a tinge of sadness as she longed for her mother. However, no other cats were in sight. Despite her loneliness, the kitten displayed a lively and mischievous spirit from the start, seeking attention and love from her rescuers.
“Her cries were a call for help. She delivered it to us while continuing to vocalize her need. She was never reserved but rather demanded love and care.”
The young feline, named Peep after the Easter marshmallow treat, proved to be remarkably perceptive and wasted no time in expressing her thoughts to her foster mother. Despite initial challenges, Sarah was tenacious in getting Peep to feed. As Peep began to consume from the bottle, she quickly became Sarah’s favorite time of day.
Peep’s unique feeding routine included sipping from her bottle before flipping over and wriggling onto her back, inviting belly massages. While in her enclosure, Sarah closely observed the adventurous kitten exploring her surroundings, realizing that Peep might benefit from some companionship.
Once Peep’s health was deemed stable, Sarah introduced her to a litter of smaller kittens that resembled her. The connection was immediate, and Peep naturally took on the role of a big sister, guiding her new brothers who were content to be by her side.
Peep, an affectionate and vocal kitten, quickly won hearts. Her constant purring and meowing were endearing traits that captured the attention of a family who decided to offer her a loving forever home once she was old and healthy enough to be adopted.
