Shelter Kitten With Just Hours To Live Says ‘Thank You’ To His Rescuer In The Sweetest Way


Henry the kitten was rescued from a local shelter recently but there was a sad twist to his story. When he was removed from the shelter, he only had hours left to live. The good folks at Cat Rescue Newcastle did not want to see his life end like this. Instead of allowing him to be scheduled to be euthanized, they decided to foster him.


Adelle is the volunteer who is taking him in. Of course, Harry is very happy for the assistance. He is one grateful cat and he knows how fortunate he is. It is stories like these that make us want to volunteer more often. Cats like Harry do not always have the chance to enjoy life. They are often sent to high kill shelters before they even get to live a normal life.

Thanks to Adelle, Harry was given the chance to go on a freedom ride before his number is up. While Harry’s initial prognosis was grim, Adelle has been helping him find a whole new lease on life. Some may have thought that she was just keeping him until he was ready to pass on. However, she has already been able to find him a forever home to call his own.

These are the stories that make our hearts sing. Most people would be willing to give up on a cat who is in dire straits like this but not Adelle! She was ready to give him the help he needed in a moment’s notice. The best part of this video is when Henry offers his rescuer a sincere “thank you”. We cannot get enough of this cat’s connection with Adelle.

It is as if he knows just how close he was to the end. He realizes that Adelle is all that is saving him from a far more uncertain fate. We are willing to bet that Henry will be giving out plenty of kisses in the future. This cat has been given a second chance at life and we are beyond happy to see it. He deserves all of the best, right?
