This kitten’s fierce determination to survive has captured the imagination of all those who have read his story. They call him ‘Warrior’. Warrior was rescued from a factory where he was injured by a forklift truck. Warrior’s injuries were very severe. The wounds covered most of his body. He was rescued by The Kitten Cottage in Cape Town.
They bandaged him and administered antibiotics. The situation seemed helpless they said but this little boy’s fierce determination to survive pulled him through.
Companion Aided Healing
Another kitten, Butterfly, was introduced to him which was a nice idea. He seemed to pick up. They became best friends and played together. A very neat way to help recovery. You can see that he received long-term intensive care over the four months of his recovery. Great work by the rescue organization. And he was re-homed with a nice couple, The Kitten Cottage say.
The first picture on this page, which I presume was taken by someone at The Kitten Cottage, is excellent and it tugs at the heartstrings. Let’s hope his has no mental scares. He looks like a longhaired orange tabby bicolor: orange and white.
There are many tales of a kitten’s fierce determination to survive against the odds. I can remember a story written by Elisa of a kitten who was placed inside a microwave and then thrown off a building from the third floor. He survived and was rescued.
On a slightly different topic I said that adult cats can survive for 10 days without water and 35 days without food on this page.
