Rescue Kitty from Hopeless to Hopeful

This kitty has had an amazing transformation from a hopeless stray to a kitty that is very spoiled and loved by her family.

While walking there we heard a small animal squeaking incessantly… it sounded like a bird, it was so high pitched. My girl thought it was a cat, but I scoffed at the notion, I’ve never heard a cat sound like that!”

After dinner they went back but on the opposite side of the street. The sound got louder as they walked and finally they saw a teeny little thing. “It was a cat, a very very tiny little kitten (2 weeks old, according to the vet who treated her the next day). I have had 2 cats already but both were older than 6 months when I got them, I’ve never even seen a cat this small in person before! It was soaking wet, completely filthy, severely dehydrated and underfed,” he said via reddit.

They fed the kitty water and some food. “The first photo [on the left] was taken right after that. We were extremely fortunate to locate a 24 hour animal clinic just 10 minutes walk from our place, which really made the difference. There we found out ‘it’ was a ‘she’, and she was dewormed, prescribed antibiotics, vaccinations, and basically got a new lease on life,” kitty’s dad wrote via reddit.

    Thank you for saving her! There are not enough people who care about cats here. I’m also from Metro Manila, and all my cats are rescues. When people hear that, they always tell me I’m nuts, that I’m wasting my money. Its always encouraging to hear stories about people caring enough to save helpless creatures. May your tribe increase!

    She had just enough energy to cry out and let them know she needed help. What a sweet story, and what a beautiful girl she grew up to be.

    Poor little thing when she was just found – I thought she had grey feet until I saw her all grown up. Her feet were so dirty they looked grey. She looks happy & relaxed all grown up with her hoomans:)
