This kitten’s color was changing magically before her eyes. What in the world was going on here? Was something wrong with the cat? Read on to find out!
Bruce the Bedraggled Cat
Bruce is now a very popular cat, but that wasn’t always true. On November 3, 2015, someone found him clinging to life and bedraggled in Auckland, New Zealand. Thankfully, his fate turned around when Kathryn van Beek rescued him as a kitten.
Though Bruce was quite lucky, he almost missed out on the rescue. The day he was found was very wet, and it’s actually a miracle that van Beek saw him at all through the rainfall. When she glanced over, she thought the gray creature might be a rat or mouse!
