Laila is a 4-week-old kitten who arrived at KHS with symptoms of severe anemia. "She was extremely weak and unable to eat on her own," Haendiges said. "But this little girl is a fighter."
King and Laila, who was being treated by devoted vet staff all through the day and night to save her life, were recovering in the same room. "Both of these little patients were crying and meowing for attention so we put them together," KHS veterinary staff wrote on Facebook. "They just didn't want to be alone."
Given the opportunity, Laila immediately curled up next to King's head. "It worked wonders," Haendiges said, "calming them both and letting them relax and rest."
