Kitten discovered close to bushes, jumps again and provides cuddles to everybody round him

A little kitten bounced back from the edge and began to cuddle everyone around him.

Molly, from Seattle, Washington, heard a kitten screams earlier this year when she was in a Wal-Mart parking lot. She followed the noise back next to some bushes and found a small kitten, about two days old. He meowed loudly next to his mother, who unfortunately did not survive the busy traffic.

Molly, a full-time nanny, realized she couldn't bottle feed the kitten 24/7 so posted a request on Facebook for the assistance of an experienced bottle feeder.

Emersen, an Alley Cat Project volunteer, was quick to respond and let her foster community know. "She told us about the little guy and I took the chance," Megan Nystrom told Love Meow. "Emerson drove up to Molly and drove him to my house, holding him in her hand to keep him warm."

When the kitten arrived, Megan noticed how small he was. "He was by far the smallest kitten I've ever seen. I really think he was premature. He looked just like a tiny gray mouse, and that's how he got his name – Mouse."

Despite his short stature, Mouse had a big voice and kept meowing until he got exactly what he wanted. "He took several feedings to lock himself in but quickly got the hang of it," Megan added.

A few days after grooming, Mouse gave Megan the cutest little surprise. After getting a full belly that morning, he curled up in her hands, turned on his smallest purr motor, and began to rumble. "He loved snuggling up to his bottle and started purring pretty quickly."

Mouse wrapped her arms around his cuddly pig and immediately fell asleep.

As Mouse grew, his personality began to develop. Once he figured out his legs, he waddled out of his comfortable nest and tried to explore.

"He turned out to be a cute, cuddly, mischievous kitten. After he got his first round of vaccinations, I let him meet my older cats Jack-Jack and Cleo," Megan shared with Love Meow.

"Jack-Jack is a giant owl-eyed treasure and he was absolutely afraid of Mouse."

But resistance was pointless, as Mouse was determined to win him over by forcing cuddles from all directions. Cleo, the other older cat, wasn't too sure about the little newcomer either, but tolerated his many antics.

"He insisted on following Cleo and Jack-Jack. At first he was only confronted with hissing or quick escapes, but eventually they got used to him pouncing on them and snuggling up to them for a nap."

The stubborn tabby boy wouldn't take no for an answer. The more they resisted his affection, the more determined he was to get her to love him.

"We carefully let our older dog Benny meet Mouse too because we weren't sure how to proceed. Mouse was learning how to run crabs and do his best Halloween kitten pose, and he used it a lot with Benny," said Megan.

"They loved wrestling and hunting each other."

Benny didn't mind having a snuggly friend to nap, especially one with a loud purr motor.

Mouse enjoyed switching between his foster mother and the furry residents for a nap and being as pampered as he could.

Sweet Cleo shared her cozy bed with the needy little cat.

Mouse is a natural parrot cat and is an expert at sleeping in the crook of his neck.

His savior Molly fell head over heels in love with the little guy the day she found him in the parking lot. Since then, she has followed his journey on social media.

When the kitten was big enough to be adopted, Molly knew the perfect home for him.

Last week, Molly Mouse officially admitted to her loving home, where he would have a canine sister, Coco, to frolic and cuddle with every day.
