One morning in 2012, Joann Bowlell of God’s Little People was on a rescue mission for a crying kitten.
“I heard her a little further down the road from the dumpsters and instantly ran towards the noise I heard. I soon discovered her lying in the side of the road and I was horrified at the state of her eyes,” Bowell shares with Love Meow.
“Where there used to be eyes there was just two huge ‘mud-cakes.'”
The kitten was extremely skinny and malnourished. “She had for sure been lost from her mom for some days. How she’d made it on her own remains a mystery. There was nothing I dared do with the state of her eyes so off to the vet I went.”
