Passed Out From The Heat

On an abnormally hot July day in Montreal, Canada, a tiny kitten made his way up to an apartment complex door. 

When a resident finally noticed him, they were quick to act. Who knows how long he had been out there without anyone caring to notice.

It was clear this kitten had been neglected. He was skin and bones and in dire need of medical attention. 

The finder quickly made contact with Dan and Lucie, local animal rescue volunteers.

The two quickly sprung into action, wasting no time in getting this kitty to safety.

This kitten was dehydrated, malnourished, and had an eye infection. It’s safe to say Dan and Lucie got there just in time.

Taken To Safety

The poor little kitty could barely move — he was so weak.

Even if he had the strength, he might not have gotten far with his eyes crusted shut like they were.

Realizing this, rescuers quickly fed him as they cleaned his eyes and made their way to the vet. 

At the vet, he was given even more food and nutrients to stabilize him. They also gave him antibiotics and started cleaning his eyes. 

While he was still very weak, he was purring the whole time. He knew he had finally reached safety and everything would be okay.

The Road To Recovery

After he was stabilized at the vet, Chatons Orphelins Montréal, a local animal rescue, took over.

They named him Marvel, a tribute to the miracle of his rescue. Next, they found the right foster home for him.

But, he wasn’t fully healed yet.

While in foster care, he developed a respiratory infection as a delayed consequence of his previous living conditions. 

However, this was quickly dealt with and he stepped back on the road to recovery.

Shedding The Past

As time wore on and Marvel’s health began to improve more and more, he started shedding his longer fur.

This tiny tabby had a short black coat of fur with a longer layer of brown fur over top.

As the long brown fur started to shed, he was left with a svelte coat of short black fur underneath.

While they don’t know why he started losing the long fur, they’re certain it is not health related.

In fact, Marvel has made a full recovery from the issues he had upon rescue.

His respiratory infection is gone, his eyes are clear, and he’s back up to a healthy weight!

Now that he’s gained some strength, he’s begun to show a little more of his personality.

“He is very sweet and easy-going. He likes other kittens and always sleeps near his humans,” rescuers said.

He has everything he needs and gets stronger every day.
