Woman rescues kitten from dumpster only to find out it's an incredibly rare Calico cat

When this woman heard meowing coming from a nearby dumpster, she did what any good citizen would do and rescued him. After realizing what type of cat he was, she was absolutely shocked. The rare, male Calico cat, is widely known for being hard to get and could sell for thousands of dollars. This selfless lady wasn’t concerned with the money, only with nursing her new buddy back to health.

I can’t believe this, what are the chances of this happening!?

After hearing meowing in the distance, this woman rescues a male Calico cat out of the dumpster

She couldn’t believe what she was seeing, it was a rare, male Calico cat, probably less than a week old. The precious cat was so young he still had his eyes closed

Right away she realized the poor kitten had some pretty serious injuries. A broken left leg and a back paw that needed immediate attention, his paw had developed gang green from being in the dumpster.

Thankfully, the woman had experience in nursing cats. She bottle-fed the little guy and nursed him back to health

The good samaritan named the baby Calico cat, Martyr, mainly because he had to fight so hard to survive. Day by day, she bottle-fed Martyr until he started regaining his health. It was an uphill battle that wouldn’t be easy, but he had love on his side.

Unfortunately, the gange green proved to be too much for his tiny back paw and it was amputated. At least the kitten is still alive, he’s such a fighter. Even with the missing paw, Martyr continued to stay strong and gracious.

There’s only a 1 out of 3,000 chance you’ll ever get a male Calico cat. So why are they so rare? They have a special genetic makeup that allows them to have all colors of fur

Generally, when it comes to cats, males either have black or orange in their fur, not both. This because they only have one x chromosome, whereas females have two x chromosomes so can have both colors in their fur.

That is what makes male Calico cats so rare, during fertilization their genetic makeup is divided XXY chromosome, instead of the XY like most males. It makes them the only males who can have full colors in their furs.

Martyr grew up to be a healthy cat, he’s also adapted to his missing paw like a champ

I’m sure Martyr is super grateful for his rescue mama, they now live happily together knowing how lucky they both are. The chances of her finding a male Calico, are the same as a human being hit by a comet, just soak that up for a bit.

What a heartwarming story of pure chance and circumstance. If this kind lady hadn’t been in the right spot at exactly the right time, this rare male Calico most likely would have perished in the trashcan all alone. To see this amazing rescue for yourself, watch the video below!
