This wee one came from a junk yard and was basically surviving day to day. The moment she started to cuddle with her rescuers, she couldn’t stop. Everyone loves second chances. She was grateful.
“She was with a group of 11 cats. All of their ears nipped. The rest of them eat well, but don’t let her get any. She was in horrible shaped compared to the rest,” reddit user CassieD21 wrote.
“The others are well taken care of. Their bellies full and nice coats. This one was barely hanging on.”
When they spotted the emaciated kitty, they went into rescue mode. Once the kitten was coaxed into the box which had a large blanket inside it, they immediately took the kitty to their home.
The little calico was covered in motor oil. “I did bathe her. Twice! Her coat went from dark gray clumpy to a soft white calico. I would have never guessed. I’ve checked inside her ears several times. That is dried oil in her ears,” they wrote.
“She was very light sensitive due to the fact her eyes kept closing shut. But now she sees perfectly fine. Her pupils were highly dilated for the first couple days.”
They wrapped her up in a sweater to keep her nice and warm and cuddled with her all night long. The kitty named Lulu started to come back to life while she was snuggling in their arms. Her personality began to shine though!
“She can’t stop purring and wants to be loved. Either in your lap, while you sleep, or rubbing your leg. She’s too cute!”
“After my 25 year old tabby passed I didn’t get another. I decided to adopt her because she NEEDED a good home. She was severely malnourished, covered in oil, eyes constantly closed shut, etc. She needed someone to take care of her and give her some love. Now she has my SO, my lab-Miles, and I. A perfect home. (Oh and an aquarium to stare at)”
When Lulu is not snuggling with her humans, she loves cuddling with their laundry.
Every cat deserves a second chance at life like Lulu got.
