A cat looked unrecognisable after it was taken in by a kindhearted stranger.
After months of vets trips, big meals, care and attention, the moggy went from scraggly stray to fluffy feline.
The transformation was shown off by the pet’s new owner, who posted before and after snaps to Reddit.
They wrote: “This little guy walked up to me two months ago while I was in my front yard.
“He was infested with fleas, had rotting teeth (the smell from his mouth was unbearable) never neutered, starving, he was skin and bones, was sneezing constantly and could barely breathe.
“The next day we visited the vet, thinking he may have to be put down.”
The post continues: “Turns out we could save him but it would cost.
“Surgery to remove teeth, a lot of vet visits, shots, medication and lots of food and love.
“The before is from August 4th. The after is from 3-4 days ago.
“He still has a long way to go but man am I glad he came up to me.
“Oh, and turns out he is 12-15 years of age, so now I’m even more determined to make sure he lives out his senior years as uneventful and peaceful as possible.”
The heartwarming post garnered more than 7,600 upvotes – and many thanked the kind Redditor for looking after the stray cat.
One commenter said: “Thank you for taking care of this cat.
“Folks like you give me hope that humans are not all bad.
“I volunteer with a lot of animal rescues and seeing successes like yours always motivates us.
“Wish you years of togetherness with the cute kitty. Please give him a big hug from my side.”
Another wrote: “He was ready to retire from street life. I am glad you found each other.”
A third commented: “What a difference love can make!”
And a fourth added: “It wasn’t random… cats know good people, and he chose you to care for him in his golden years.
“Thank you for accepting his call.”
