He was filthy, he had no Mom and nowhere to call home. So the bedraggled tiny kitten wandered about the apartment complex all on his own.
Luckily for him, he was seen by someone who cared, veoletohara, a Tumblr user, saw him hanging about at the bottom of the complex’s stairs. In pretty bad shape, thins tiny kitten was so covered in filth and dirt, she just knew she just couldn’t leave him.
She had seen many stray cats in the area, but never one looking as bad as he did. She tried unsuccessfully to feed him, then with the help of a neighbor they managed to corner and catch him.
He was then given a nice soft towel to snuggle up up in.
Veoletohara then gave the terrified kitten a good brush, along with some gentle words he started to calm down.
Even snuggling in her arms, probably for the first time feeling comforted.
“(We) got the fleas and dirt washed off him, got some antibiotics for a slight cold, but he was otherwise fine, kneading and purring up a storm, eating a lot and being heart-crushingly adorable.” Here are some photos from kitty’s first vet check-up!
In just one day, he looked like a brand new cat! The woman named the little rescue fur baby ‘Nux’ and gave him all the love he had needed so desperately for a long time!
Nux settled in her lap, looked up into her hero’s eyes as if he was saying, “Thank you for saving me.” Nux was given a brand new lease on life. Now, he’s all grown up – healthy and happy!
