A Near-Death Cat Was Given A Second Chance At Life


Samuel, an amiable black-and-white kitten, was rescued from a tiny container where he had spent most of his existence. Samuel was brought to Houston’s BARC Animal Shelter, where he was severely underweight.

His eyelids were swollen shut due to management, and he had a long list of costly medical difficulties. He had pressure sores from being shut up, and his skin was peeling. A coworker who didn’t want Samuel’s life to end this way put a photo of him on the internet.

Lucky for Samuel, Leslie Raines, a vet tech in the Houston area, was home sick that day and stumbled upon his picture. Soon, Samuel moved into a foster home with Leslie Raines and the slow process of his recovery began.

Months later, Samuel’s thick black and white fur grew in but he still had fears to overcome. In just a year, Samuel transformed into the handsome, fluffy cat he was meant to be.

Raines began seeking for a new home for Samuel after a few years. After then, there will be some time to search. Raines was introduced to Bryan Smith. Bryan’s skill to calm Samuel thrilled Leslie, but she wasn’t persuaded he was the perfect owner until the kitten gave her a sign. The small kitten found his permanent home with a guy who had lost his 13-year-old cat to cancer.

Samuel began to be a friend of Bryan’s. He’s been living with Bryan for almost a year and things are going swimmingly. He is ecstatic with his new existence.

The cat was also found to have pressure wounds from being confined to a small space for a long time.

Samuel went from death row to a veterinarian’s office.

Samuel progressively gained weight and restored his vision thanks to their kind care. He still needed to learn how to be a cat, though.

Months later, Samuel’s thick black and white fur grew in but he still had fears to overcome.

Samuel transformed into the handsome, fluffy cat he meant to be.

The cat was apprehensive about meeting potential adopters, but that changed when he met Bryan.

Now the cat and his new dad are healing together and living happily with each other’s company.
