Purple abused kitten has now found a new friend to help him heal!
Last week we posted a story of Smurf the kitten who was dropped off at the San Jose animal shelter after surviving life as a chew toy for dog fighters. He was dyed purpled and suffered horrible injuries.
Smurf has never lost his spirit, and is now recovering a bit quicker thanks to a new best friend he made.
Just days after Smurf was taken in by the Nine Lives Foundation, a rescue center for injured and abused felines in California, the group saved another kitty with serious injuries — a cat named Wanda.
A family found Wanda shivering and starving in a trash can on a cold December night, with her left eye crushed and her right eye suffering from an infection.
"Unable to care for her, they came to us hoping we might help her," Nine Lives Foundation wrote on Facebook.
Wanda was ultimately left completely blind. In the darkness however, she found a companion.
"She was placed in the same cage as SMURF on her very first day and has become bonded with him."
They are now inseparable!
They cuddle so much that Wanda has picked up some of Smurf's purple dye on her fur.
When the day comes, these two will be adopted together! :)
