She took a risk on a sickly runt, and 7 years later, this fur ball brings her joy every day
7 years ago, a young woman was volunteering at her local shelter when a pregnant stray came in with a sickly litter.
That’s when she fell in love with the runt, a calico named Jazz.
Jazz was covered in fleas, infested with worms, balding, and the shelter didn’t believe Jazz would survive. The young woman decided Jazz was worth the risk.
“I had her checked by the vet at the shelter and was told it was crucial to try and remove the fleas manually. She was really young, estimated to be four or five weeks old so she couldn’t be treated with drops,” the woman shared on imgur.
“When I first got her she was pretty gaunt with only sparse hair on her body. I had to deworm her twice as well.”
Jazz started to trust her new mom, and began to cuddle and purr when she and her friends gave Jazz lots of love and attention.
Now Jazz is a full grown happy kitty who loves her mom more than anything... and also bean bags. Bean bags are her thing.
“To my shock and amazement she has some of the silkiest fur I’ve ever felt on a cat. She has more medium length hair and it is absolutely impossible to get off of stuff. She also randomly attacks your feet so you know she loves you. This is her “kill it,” mode.”
Kitty land mine!
“I’ve had Jazz since my Junior year of High School - and I brought her to college, and she’s still with me in graduate school. She’s one of the highlights of my life, and is absolutely chatty and sassy.”
Every life is worth saving, and Jazz is living proof of that.
Share the cute!
