Greta, the kitten, is “the most metal kitten” Maggie Valley, NC rescuers have seen. She was a “tiny and bitey” feral when TNR (trap, neuter, return) rescuers caught her trying to survive at a feral colony. Life for any feral kitten is highly dangerous, with 75% not surviving past six months. Although she didn’t know it, this little wildcat was extremely lucky to be in that trap.
“We spotted this baby at one of the colonies we feed and immediately placed a trap for her. She’s in foster care now, learning to trust people. Say hello to Greta,” shared Sister Kitten Animal Rescue.

Being the most metal kitten is saying something, as you can see in their pawsome logo below:
Greta’s Unique ‘Devil Horns’ Paw
First, the rescuers took Greta for a vet check and marked her crate accordingly: tiny and bitey.
“Greta has a vet visit this morning for what appears to be either an injured toe or a birth defect. She is one spicy little sister, so we’ve marked her crate accordingly.”
There, the vets discovered the scrappy sister had an unusual paw with “devil horns.” To this rescue, they immediately saw the universal metal-lovers hand gesture, the “sign of the horns.” Fortunately, the unique paw wasn’t painful, and she would be fine.
“An X-ray revealed Greta was born with a permanent set of ‘devil horns’ on her left paw. She’s missing her two inside fingers. She’s the most metal kitten we’ve ever trapped and probably the most Sister Kitten kitten ever.”
Greta Quickly Goes from Feral to Lovebug?
Greta may have been fiercely feral, but she became a soft fluffy lovebug in only about a month. Like everyone, she just wants to be loved, and with a foster home, her hard edges eventually softened.
Next, she was ready to find a furever home with somebody who wanted to be the most Sister Kitten ever’s permanent groupies.
Greta Rocks On
As hard-edged as she once was, Greta found a family in no time where she could let her guard down forever. But, she definitely still has that edgy wildcat vibe!
“Greta went from #feralAF when she was trapped to lovebug in a little over a month. Yesterday, she went home with the perfect family – who are also previous SK adopters. We will miss the hell out of her. but we are elated that she found a wonderful home where she will thrive,” they shared.
Although Greta left the building, there’s never a shortage of tiny and bitey floof monsters needing love in the Maggie Valley area.
