Not everyone is fortunate enough to lead a life devoid of issues and illnesses. Many animals suffer greatly from diseases they are born with, even in the animal kingdom. Matilda Beans, the kitten, had an upper respiratory infection at birth, and although her siblings were developing normally, her health was getting worse every day.

However, she was lucky to have met Ashley Kelley, a gracious woman who has made the decision to assist her in getting well. She had to put in a lot of work, but she is now content and well. In addition to all of these, Matilda had made a new companion in the form of a plush lamb named Lamby Beans. It’s a love tale, according to Ashley, between Matilda Beans and her infant Lamby Beans.

Ashley had explained the reason why she had not given up on Matilda. She had said that she had fostered many sick kittens and not everyone could make it.

She had given some advice for those who want to foster. She had said that they should have good mental health as the animals need lots of care and emotions. And had said that many with special needs don’t make it but they can make it with a lot of help from the fosters. Also had said that it takes a lot of their time and energy to help them out. And fostering is fun and it’s lovely to help animals out.

She had said that Matilda is very lovely and is very energetic. And she always plays with other kittens and runs around. She had said that Matilda loves the other cats and even her children and the dogs in the house.

She also adopted two large cats and took a break from kittens after getting married and having kids. Following her children’s school start, she resumed fostering kittens. She had mentioned that she had only lately begun to foster and assist kittens with special needs.
