We like to think that the poor puppies and kittens on Death Row at the pound aren’t aware of how close they are to being put down. But a story posted by Cat Rescue Newcastle in NSW, Australia, seems to suggest otherwise.
Recently, the rescue group got a call from a local pound saying they had a sweet cat named Henry who had been living in a cold cage for ages and was about to be put to sleep. Unfortunately, all of the rescue groups in the area were full, including this one. Luckily, one of their foster mothers, Michelle, said she had space in her house for this poor little boy, but she needed help transporting him. So one of the rescue workers, Adelle, drove up to the pound on Friday morning and scooped up the kitten mere hours before he was set to be “destroyed.”
As you can see in the video, Henry was not shy about showing his appreciation.
“The moment I opened his cat carrier, Henry walked up onto my shoulder and gave me the most heartwarming kitty kiss I had ever received since becoming a foster carer,” Adelle wrote in a blog post for The Animal Rescue Site. “The love and affection he displayed was breathtaking and I just knew in my heart that he knew what had just happened.”
