We’re all empathetic beings. Our brains are simply constructed to allow us to put ourselves in the shoes of others and envisage how they would feel in certain scenarios. When we observe someone close to us in agony, our brain responds with waves of empathy, prompting us to seek answers to their problems. This isn’t just true for humans; we also feel compassion for our pets.
Justina Strumilaite just discovered a sickly kitten on the sidewalk who would not have survived on his own. She felt sorry for the small boy and decided to return him to his family. She wouldn’t let him suffer outside, so she gave him the name Brownie.
She noticed anything unusual when she brought the kitty home and bathed him properly. One of Brownie’s front paws had only two toes. In contrast to having extra toes, this condition is known as “split foot” (polydactyly). Syndactyly, or Brownie’s condition, is the most frequent type of split foot. Fortunately, merely trimming the kitten’s toes on a regular basis will keep the problem at bay.
Brownie’s “lobster claw” does not appear to be a problem for him; his only issue is with eating. He hadn’t eaten in days when Justine brought him home, and his condition was deteriorating by the day. Brownie became even more underweight as a result of his lack of eating, and things were getting worse. Justina didn’t give up and eventually got the kitten to eat and drink food on a regular basis, and Brownie grew into a lovely young man.
Justina discovered Brownie’s wonderful personality when it was nurtured back to health. Brownie immediately gained weight, and his fur began to grow at an alarming rate.
Brownie, the kitten who was abandoned on a sidewalk, has grown into a lovely fluffy cat who now spends his time with his owner.
What was once a sickly kitten has grown into a magnificent feline. This is just another reminder that with love and compassion, we can do anything.
