People around the neighborhood immediately helped one another to put out a fire when it broke out in someone’s backyard. Everyone thought that everything was fine after they successfully put out the fire, then they heard painful cries coming from the rubble. (Warning: Images below might be too graphic for some people)
People started to move pieces of wood when they found a tiny desperate kitten badly burned. They immediately scooped her out and rushed the tiny kitty to the nearest animal clinic. They named her Phoenix and staff at the RSPCA started treating her wounds.
“When Phoenix arrived she was in a really sorry state,” said Luka Atkinson, the reception supervisor at RSPCA Felledge. “She was just 6 weeks old back then, and to see such a tiny kitten that way was really hard for us. The skin on all four of her pads was burnt off and the fur on her face, tummy and legs was singed — she was lucky to be alive.”
People at the shelter did everything that they could to make Phoenix feel better despite her injuries. However, her wounds only got worse as days passed by.
“The vet said the injuries Phoenix had suffered were not direct burns from the flames, but rather heat burns from the blaze,” Atkinson said. “This meant the full extent of her injuries took a few days to come out; initially, her fur looked singed and fuzzy but it gradually started to fall out.”
Fortunately, after a week, her condition began to improve and slowly the tiny furball started to heal. She has also shown a lot of positivity to the people who helped her. After several days, Phoenix started to show some playfulness and everyone at the shelter give her lots of cuddles and TLC
The small kitten has yet to fully recover but doctors are positive that the cat will be back to her normal self soon. They call her the sweetest kitty ever!
“She is such a happy little thing and she eats, plays and loves fuss just like any other kitten, and we hope people won’t be scared by her appearance while she heals,” Atkinson said. “She runs riots with the other kittens at our center, so we are just so happy we gave her a chance and saved her life — she really is the luckiest kitten in Britain!”
