Meet Warrior, one of the most extraordinary little creatures we’ve ever known.

Warrior was rescued from a factory and was badly injured when he was brought in. He had been caught in one of the forklift trucks, so we needed to rush him to the vet immediately. The wounds covered most of his body, so we bandaged him up and put him on heavy antibiotics, but it seemed like a hopeless situation. Warrior, however, had no intention of giving up.

Over the weeks that followed, he fought with fierce determination. He was bandaged twice a day, hand-fed and was kept on medication for 3 weeks. Warrior seemed to gain super-kitten strength when we introduced him to another kitten, Butterfly, who became his best friend. These two played together as Warrior continued to get stronger, and after about 4 months Warrior was fully recovered.

We are so proud of this gutsy little kitten who we eventually homed with a lovely couple who live in Melkbosstrand.
