Robocat – Tiny Rescue Kitten Is The Funniest Baby Ever

Robocat is what we call him, because in rescue, the best thing you can do is stay positive and always look on the bright (and funny) side of things. Otherwise you risk ending up in a psyche word. What we see every day is just too much to handle. And when people ask how do we deal with it, the answer is not always easy to hear.

He arrived at the shelter very sick – leishmaniasis, mange, ehrichia, you name it. Continue reading Rescuers Discover Something Amazing About This Rescue Dog
