Woman Rescued A Special Cat That No One Wanted And It Turned Her Life Around.

The internet’s obsessed with cats, that’s no surprise. With the help of countless adorable cat videos on social media, people have been warming up to these furry animals who were once stereotyped in the media, (and wrongfully so) as temperamental, and angry beings who love hissing and scratching people for no good reason. Lately, it seems like everyone’s on board the “I love cats” train, with more and more people becoming fascinated with these mysterious and hauntingly beautiful creatures.

And even though most of us love cats, caring for one is a totally different story. Particularly if the animal is special-needs. Thankfully, people like Karyn Poplin and her husband, of Kitty Adventure Rescue League Sanctuary, from Fort Worth Texas, opened their heart and home to care for one special-needs kitty who was looking for a place to finally call home.

Karyn Poplin and her husband manage the animal rescue and sanctuary, “Kitty Rescue League & Sanctuary,” where they rescue felines with special needs.

These animals, who are sometimes pretty hard to find a home for, have all kinds of ailments, and disabilities. But when Karyn stumbled upon a fragile kitty with radial hypoplasia, she didn’t know that this furry animal was about to change her life.

Her animal sanctuary is a no-kill shelter, although she does state on her Facebook page that every case is different.

But the moment she came across this lovely kitty, Karyn knew she needed help…and a home. The poor cat had trouble with the openings of her nose, and had a serious condition that made her arms “twisty” which meant she had trouble walking.

The kitty was facing some serious ailments due to her condition.

Not only did she had two different sized nostrils, but she was also paired with some form of cleft palette deformity. When animals are impaired or need special care, it can be a lot harder to place them in a home.

The shelter takes in strays and rescue animals that are supposed to be there for a limited amount of time.

The whole point of Karyn and her husband’s shelter is to find special needs cats a home. After her time was running out on another shelter, a rescuer decided to keep the kitty at his house, providing a temporary solution for the shelter’s “special girl.”

Unfortunately, they weren’t able to find a family who’d want to deal with the trouble of caring for a special-needs kitty.

Every time they could see the light at the end of the tunnel, it ended up in disappointment, as many adoptions ended up falling through. It seems as though this poor kitty was destined to be homeless, until the rescuer decided to reach out to Karyn.
