Born outside and the only survivor of his family, a newborn kitten named King was saved by a rescue center in North Carolina, Sparkle Cat Rescue.
Keep reading to discover King’s beautiful journey to finding the perfect family!
A Rough Start
As soon as the kitten arrived at the rescue center, he was taken directly to the emergency vet.
He was in terrible condition and was running out of time.
He was underdeveloped, weak, and suffered from an awful maggot infestation.
Sarah Kelly, A foster volunteer of Sparkle Cat Rescue, was astounded by his strong spirit.
Even though he was pain, he clung to his rescuer and made biscuits.
A True Fighter
Despite all the pain he was going through, rescuers saw that he had the will to live.
He wasn’t going to give up so easily!
King was given medical treatment and a much-needed bath.
Most kittens would be fussy about this, but not King.
He gladly accepted the help from his rescuers.
King had no problem latching onto his bottle. Everyone at the rescue facility could tell he was so grateful to be in good hands.
The rescuers worked long and hard to ensure King had everything he needed for a healthy recovery.
It didn’t take long for him to start showing signs of improvement. Each day he was a little healthier!
Trouble in Paradise
Around 3-4 weeks old, the veterinarians determined King was deaf, but not even that could break his spirit.
“He defeated all odds and defied the vet’s expectations! He survived and now he’s thriving,” Sarah said.
With the right home, being deaf wouldn’t affect his quality of life.
Keeping this in mind, rescuers started seeking the perfect home for King.
The Perfect Family
Sarah Kelly contacted a woman named Christina Moody, who had two deaf cats of her own.
When she heard King’s story, she knew he was meant to be a part of their family.
Christina said to Love Meow, “Sarah told me about King. My immediate response was he needed my cats and I needed him.”
SURVEY: Do You Consider Cats Family?
Your opinion matters!
The decision was made – King could become part of Christina’s family.
As soon as Christina opened King’s carrier, one of her cats (Snow) started to investigate.
From that moment on, Snow decided he would protect King.
“It was amazing. Everywhere King went, Snow was right there. They did a nose touch and licks within the first few hours being home. We were so pleasantly surprised.” Christina explained to Love Meow.
However, Bomba (Christina’s other deaf cat), needed a little more time to get used to having a new brother in the house.
Two days passed and Bomba started to come around. Soon enough, all three of them were inseparable.
What’s even cuter is that King looks like a tinier version of Snow and Bomba!
All three of them are white.
All three cats are also deaf, therefore they share a special bond.
Bomba and Snow seem to understand King’s needs as a deaf kitten.
They make sure he’s never alone and they’re always there to make sure he’s okay.
Happily Ever After
When King was rescued, he had a very small chance of surviving.
But with plenty of love and determination, King beat the odds and found a perfect home.
Christina and her husband knew it was fate that brought King into their lives.
He belonged with them!
Snow, Bomba, and King share an incredible bond.
It never ceases to amaze Christina’s family how much the three bothers love each other.
King will never have to worry about being alone or in danger ever again! He is tiny but mighty.
