Introducing Smurf, it is hard to understand why someone would do this to him.

He had been dyed purple, had over twenty bite wounds on his body and was used as a chew toy, probably by dogs as part of a game.

He weighed less than two pounds and needed immediate attention so was taken to the vet clinic.


After finding older, healed scars during surgery, it became apparent that this tiny kitty was a chronic victim of abuse.

After two days of healing, Smurf began to play with some of the other kittens there, he was beginning to feel better.

He still had more surgery to go through as they needed to repair a large wound that was on his leg, but thankfully, all his other wounds were healing nicely.


After a week, Smurf began to get the life back in his eyes and was eating his food like a champ.

His room mate was a blind kitten named Wanda, the two of them instantly bonded and enjoyed playing together and giving each other comfort to help them through this difficult time.


In fact they spent so much time together that Wanda began to get a purple hue on her belly!

Both kitties were getting stronger by the day and before long, Smurf’s grey, fluffy coat was beginning to show through the purple.


After 50 days you could hardly see the dye, Smurf was blooming into a beautiful grey kitty.

With the help and love from Wanda and his carers, you would hardly know that he had been through such an ordeal.


Fast forward to today and Smurf has now been adopted into a loving home.

We are so pleased that he managed to get over all the horrible things that had been done to him and we wish him a long and happy life.
