A Compassionate Man Saves A Blind Kitten’s Life Despite Being Told She Wouldn’t Survive

A Compassionate Man Saves A Blind Kitten’s Life Despite Being Told She Wouldn’t Survive

Sharing is caring!

Most people would just ignore an animal in need while on vacation, but this kind man isn’t one of them. 

The kind-hearted man saved this blind kitten’s life, despite being told that she wouldn’t survive.

It all happened while Mantees was on vacation. While enjoying his time off work, something caught his attention; he heard desperate meowing for help.

Instead of moving on and enjoying the rest of his vacation, Mantees did the kindest thing ever – he followed the meows until he found a tiny kitten that was barely even alive.

While examining the kitten, he realized that the kitten’s eyes were completely closed out. He said:

“I decided to take care of her during my holiday so that she would be stronger and more capable to survive when I would leave back home.”

Unfortunately, due to the infection, the tiny kitten lost her eyes. But, that wasn’t even the worst part! The kitten also had trouble walking, and she couldn’t close her mouth normally. 

The kitten was in such a bad condition that the vet said she was too weak to survive.

Luckily, Mantees didn’t want to listen to anyone. When I first read this story, I was amazed by his unwavering determination to save this kitten, and obviously, the tiny kitty was also a great fighter.

He and his brothers started treating the kitten; the infections in her eyes and ears, worms, and fever. They also kept her warm and fed her every 4 hours so that she could gain enough strength. 

They even taught the kitten to move around the house despite her blindness. She would follow the noise of their steps and clapping hands, and she was very good.

Mantees had 15 sleepless nights, all because of a tiny kitten that he found randomly on the street. His departure was coming closer, but something bothered him.

Throughout this period of taking care of this tiny kitten, Mantees bonded with her a lot, and he couldn’t leave her just like that, not after everything they had been through. He said:

“So, I changed my plane reservation to include a pet, and long story short, she is now sleeping in my bed, with the body under my covers and her head on my pillow.”

He named his new feline friend Skunky, and now she’s all grown up, living her best life with Mantees and a new furry friend.

Not everyone would do what Mantees did, so I’m glad that he found Skunky. He saved her from the claws of death and changed her life forever, just like she changed his!
