Orphaned Kitten Defies The Odds & Makes A “Super” Recovery

Part of each sale through the iHeartCats store is donated to Greater Good, which helps support various charities. Thanks to customers like you, happy endings, like the one below, are made possible. 

In the words of Tommy’s House Animal Rescue:

“We were asked to take in a sickly orphan kitty who was five weeks old! We named him Bobby after the vet on duty that day. Bobby had a severe upper respiratory infection, bad eye infections and initially tested positive for feline leukemia.

With great medical support and the high-quality pet food we received from Rescue Bank, within a few months, he was on the mend!

We showcased Bobby at a Halloween Adoption Event where he wore a ‘superman’ costume—hence the name Super Bobby! He showed everyone how he overcame adversity and has become a fan favorite! The kids love him! No one can believe the ‘before and after’ pics.

The distribution of food to our rescue has made such a difference. We can have as many as 75 – 100 cats/kittens at a time, and we are a small rescue. Receiving this food allows us to use money we raise through donations and fundraisers toward medical costs as the majority of cases we take on are the difficult ones.”
