They Said There Was No Hope For This Feeble Stray Kitten, But His Saviour Refused To Give Up


On 9th January 2015, a starving stray kitten was found on a busy highway in Belize, Central America. Bruised and bloody, his jaw was broken and he was almost starved to death.


A young woman saw the poor creature as she drove past him in her car. Without a moment's hesitation, she picked him up and put him in her car. As the kitten sat down in her passenger seat, he let out a soft miaow, as if thanking her for rescuing him.

His saviour took him immediately to the nearest veterinary clinic where he would need urgent medical care.

But the diagnosis didn't look good. Smeagol, as she'd named him, was in a critical state. He weighed less than 450 grams and his jaw was broken. The vets said that he was sadly too weak to be operated on, and advised putting the kitten to sleep…

But his saviour wasn't going to give up on him, and after 6 weeks of antibiotics for his jaw, Smeagol managed to recover. His jaw was a little crooked, but he could eat and was no longer suffering.


The young woman took him home and gave him all the love and attention he had so cruelly been denied.

A year on, and Smeagol is doing very well! He has his own Facebook page and Instagram account where his mum shares all his little moments of happiness. You wouldn't believe his transformation!
