About 3-4 months ago, a diminutive kitten was found among a number of cats and kittens that needed to be rescued.

The little tabby, named Pip, was the smallest of all but exhibited a remarkable will to live. She should have weighed around two pounds at eight weeks old, but was less than half of that.

Sara Sharp, founder ofย Community Cat Club, took Pip into her care and gave her a chance to thrive. โ€œShe was born outsideโ€ฆ It was noticed when she was about four weeks old that something was not right,โ€

โ€œShe wasnโ€™t eating much and had a lingering upper respiratory infection, so she came to me to get more care.โ€

It didnโ€™t take long before Sara realized what a dynamo of a personality that was packed in that tiny body. Pip came with a big voice that she didnโ€™t hesitate to use at meal time.

She would scream at the top of her lungs, demanding that food be served on time. A few secondsโ€™ delay was unfathomable, and she would make her voice heard.

โ€œI had to give her a different type of wet food, and she didnโ€™t appreciate that. She would like to put in a formal complaint.โ€

After the first month in foster care, Pip finally crossed the one-pound mark, an incredible feat, despite still being significantly smaller for her age.

Sara worked with her veterinarian to ascertain the cause of Pipโ€™s slow growth.

At each vet visit, Pip was fearless, strutting about with her little legs, her head held high, trying to appear taller than she was.

At around 3.5 months old, Pip was inching closer to the 2-pound milestone. She had been making steady gains, albeit still tiny. She would jump on higher places to get a better vantage point of her surroundings.

As she became more active and playful, Sara introduced her to other kittens of similar size. Pip immediately took to Joni, her new suite mate, and the two just hit it off.

She has also befriended two other kittens, Honor and Honey, and taken them under her wing.

Pip has officially been diagnosed with congenital hypothyroidism, a relatively rare condition in cats. With the right medication, Pip will be able to live a happy, long, fulfilling life.

โ€œHer favorite thing to do is to be held and to just grab and play with your face or hair,โ€ Sara shared with Love Meow.
