starveling is used to describe a scrawny creature. derived from the word starving, yes, but not made up to any degree. nor is it a typo. it means runt.
Of all the newborn kittens, this starveling needs the mothers milk the most.
A word that is cleary a typo of starving or something, possibly made by someone dutch, that is trying to get covered up as being an actual word by a dodgy Serbian.
