It was all worth it once his wounds were completely healed and he was able to go home with a foster family.

But his foster family’s patience paid off. He began to interact with them and slowly learned what it meant to be truly loved.

    Like Kim, I too cried when I read this story. I am so glad to know that Thor has a loving home now after all he went through.

  5. Thank you for saving him ❤ god bless you i don’t understand how some people can be so cruel and heartless to harmless animals, he is so adorable ? and sweet precious baby ? thank you for sharing.

  6. I do not know how anyone could do this to a kitten. They need to go to prison for awhile and maybe they will think what they did to this kitten. One of these days, the people that abuse animals will pay. God did not create animals to be abused. They are supposed to be taken into homes where they can be loved and be a family member.

  7. I am thankful you guys stepped in and helped Thor. Also glad to know he was adopted! But I can’t forget was done to Thor as a kitten. I hope whoever did it was captured and received the same treatment. Yes, cut the human ears and hands! This country does not punish anyone like they should. Sorry we are way to lineant with everything. I am an animal lover and can’t handle animal cruelty!

  8. My eyes are wet with tears. I’m happy he has a loving and happy home to treat him well and love him. God bless them and God bless Thor. ❤️

  9. Just imagine the pain the kitty felt. How horrible. I believe there will be a judgement day for the abuser. He has a big surprise coming one day, well deserved, too. Bless the kitty, damn the sick abuser.

  10. Why are some people so sick in the head that they can be so cruel to akitten who is totally harmless. Why arent there laws condeming this kind of behaviour. Cruelty to animals should be a criminal offence.
