A Persian kitten in serious need of rescue found the perfect home and a little girl who loves cats got the best birthday present ever!

When Brooklyn was asked what she wanted for her sixth birthday she only had one request, a new kitten. According to her mother, Rhiannon, she “was promptly told no.” However, when Rhiannon encountered a kitten in desperate need through her work in the veterinary field she immediately knew that this was the kitten for her daughter, and Brooklyn got the best surprise for her birthday.

After losing her family’s two beloved senior cats, Brooklyn begged for a kitten for her birthday but both her parents told her no. Mom Rhianon works in a veterinary hospital and attended an emergency C section on a Persian cat brought in by a breeder. The cat had six kittens but over the course of a week all but two had passed away. Of the two kittens left, one was healthy and would be sold by the breeder. The other was a little boy with a weak heart and his future was questionable. Brooklyn’s mom knew the best possible home for this little special needs kitty. On Brooklyn’s 6th birthday, the kitten was 8 weeks old and ready to meet his new little mother.

That was about six months ago. Over the past months, the kitten has done exceptionally well and has healed.

Brooklyn’s parents say: “It appears that Brooklyn’s love and care has sealed the hole in his heart and he is a healthy young boy.”

Watch the joy on Brooklyn’s face, and her sweet reaction, once she discovers the kitten:
