Knowing He Could Go Either Way, All She Could That First Night Was Hold Him In Her Arms, Cuddling Him Till He Fell Asleep

He was malnourished, underweight, dehydrated and anemic when they found him, teetering on the brink she knew she had to try and save him.

Along with two siblings, a tiny kitten is dropped off at Feline Hope in Kitty Hawk, South Carolina after being rescued from the streets.

One kitten, in particular, was in a very bad way, so bad he could go either way. When Michelle Martello heard about him she knew she knew she had to at least try and give him another chance.

No one knew what had really happened to the three siblings, whatever it was it had led to a less than positive outlook for their future survival!

In reality, the three of them were fighting for their lives.

Michelle works for Feline Hope, a non-profit animal rescue group that focuses on helping stray cats and kittens. Rushing to the shelter to help the three kittens she didn’t quite make it in time to save all of them.

By the time she got there, it was only the morning after she had heard the news of their plight.

However, as concerning as that was, it was the least of his problems.

Winston had not had a meal in quite some time, and as a result, he was severely malnourished.

Along with being underweight Winston was also badly dehydrated and suffered from a severe flea infestation.

He was so infested they had drained him of so much blood he was actually anemic.

It was clear despite all these challenges Winston was a fighter. After all, he was still alive.

Wanting to give him the best chance possible Michelle got to work cleaning him up, getting rid of the fleas, and giving him his first meal in a long time.
