After Finding A Sick Kitten, This Woman Was Stunned When It Began To Change Color.
Trials Of Life
Animal suffering is a very real, sad occurrence, and Bruce is one of those animals that has suffered through many hardships. Not only was he abandoned in the streets, Bruce has gone through many bouts of illness. After being found in an alleyway, on a dark and stormy night, Bruce stunned everyone when he began changing colors!
November 3, 2015 is a day that any animal lover should remember. It was the day that Bruce was found in his hometown of Auckland, New Zealand. This lovable feline has made it big on the internet, thanks to the adorable photos he’s in. Bruce’s life wasn’t always sunshine and rainbows, though. Bruce has certainly had plenty of rainy days, including the day he was found on the verge of death.
Just A Coincidence
It had been raining hard on the day Bruce was found, and Kathryn Van Beek had to take a different route to get home. As she was walking down an alleyway, she looked down to see quite a sight. At first she wasn’t sure what she was looking at. Crawling on the concrete was a small, fuzzy creature. At first glance, the creature looked like a rat. When she looked a little closer, she realized it wasn’t a rat, but she still couldn’t quite make out what it was. Whatever it was, it was in very rough shape.
No matter what it was, Kathryn was concerned about its wellbeing. “He wasn’t meowing when I found him,” Van Beek said. “But he was crawling slowly along on his tummy. "[It was] as though he was trying to find his mother, poor little mite,” she recalled. “His eyes were still closed, and he still had his umbilical cord attached.” Since there was no mother to be found, Kathryn knew if she left him there alone, he was sure to die. It was truly a sad situation.
Name Of A Survivor
Kathryn, like many people, is an animal lover at heart. Not thinking twice about it, she rushed the tiny creature to her house in order to get it out of the rain. Since she had a small, dying kitten in her care, she knew she had to save it. But first, the kitten needed a name. Kathryn named it Bruce Wayne because they both were orphans at a young age. Naming an animal is easy, now making sure they don’t die, is the hard part.
Never Left Alone
It was unclear whether or not Bruce would survive those first few days of life. He didn’t make any kind of noise and seemed like he was incredibly sick. Bruce was put under 24-hour surveillance because he was entirely too sick to be left alone. Kathryn said that he was so bad off that even the slightest breeze could’ve ended his tiny life. After three months, Bruce gave Kathryn a small, yet game-changing, surprise.
