(Scroll down for video) When Chris Poole, of Cole and Marmalade fame, arrived with his two sisters at a Northern Illinois home that had been recently abandoned, they were shocked to find, among the 40+ cats who were left behind to fend for themselves, a tiny kitten--only a few weeks old--who was in pitifully bad shape. She was malnourished, covered in fleas, and had a bite wound on her neck. Once loaded into a carrier with her litter-mates, she passed out and couldn't be revived for hours. The doctor who treated the kittens advised Chris and his sisters that the kindest thing to do for the kitten would be to euthanize her.
But Chris wouldn't give up that easily! After a bath to get rid of the fleas and some food, the kitten seemed to rally. Antibiotics to treat the wound on her neck also brought the poor kitten some relief. Within only a couple of days, she started to rebound.
Chris eventually found an experienced kitten foster mom--also a professional vet tech--to take the kitten in and give her the TLC she needed to continue to heal and grow. The kitten was named Princess, and her continued recover seemed like a miracle.
Today, Princess is a healthy and happy full-grown cat, living a life of love and ease in her forever home! Check out the full story below--and make sure you have your tissues handy!
