Lost and Found

When the kitten was brought to the pound, he was starving, dehydrated, and had trouble breathing due to a severe case of an upper respiratory infection.

Despite his condition, this kitten was beautiful. He had gorgeous hair, big eyes, and huge paws. He also had extra toes which made him a polydactyl cat.

Unfortunately, the pound did not have the tools and resources needed to help the kitten. 

But this wasn’t the end of the road for this beautiful kitten. The volunteers refused to give up on finding him kitten the help he needed. 

The Search for Help

They sent word out to the online community and contacted a local rescue group, Chantons Orphelins Montreal. They were relieved to receive an immediate response.

“The kitten was lucky. The group of volunteers tried to get him out of the pound before it was too late. We knew we had to help,” Cenline Crom of Chatons Orphelins Montreal explained.

A volunteer named Sue helped transport the cat to the rescue group and assistance getting the kitten ready for his new life.

“He was very tiny, just a bag of bones, but he made it. We named him Murphy,” said Sue.

Hanging Tough

Murphy’s condition was heartbreaking. His delicate bones projected through his skin, his fur was matted, and his eyes were crusted and sore.

Despite all the obstacles poor Murphy faced, his determination was reassuring.

Murphy began his medical treatment and a foster volunteer, Amandine, stepped in and offered to be his foster mom.

“He quickly adapted to the new environment. Murphy started to heal and quickly showed his playful side. He loves to run and just have fun,” Celine stated.

Murphy’s journey wasn’t over yet.  He was treated for lice and received a much-needed haircut.

As Murphy’s medical treatment continued, the vet noticed that he was partially deaf. However, this wasn’t going to stop Murphy from living the life of a normal kitten. 

Now that Murphy was getting healthier, he could enjoy a life where he was loved and cared for.
