Without a second thought, Jennifer and her husband rushed the poor creature to Alberta Animal Services – a local shelter. When they got here, the cat was in a deplorable condition. The ginger kitten was very weak, malnourished and he also suffered several injuries. Everyone feared for the worst!

“At this point his neurological issues are not getting any better,” Erica Coomber, the director of Alberta Animal Services told THE DODO. “What this kitty has gone through is horrendous and we hope and pray that we can get him through this and he makes a full recovery.”

But despite he had been through a lot, this cat proved to be a fighter. Surrounded by the love and affection of the staff, the cat started to make some real progress to his recovery. “He loves everyone,” Erica said. “As soon [as he] hears or sees the animal nurses he starts purring and demands cuddles.”

As the time was passing, the rescue cat was looking better and better and everyone was thinking of a name for him. And what a better name to chose for such a fighting cat than Hiro. They named him like this after a character from the TV series ‘Heroes’.

After almost a year of multiple surgeries and treatments, Hiro has finally made a fully recover and he was ready to be adopted. Since a story like this could only end happily, the family that offered to adopt the sweet cat exactly the one that saved his life in the first place.

Jennifer and James who didn’t stopped visiting Hiro the time he was at the shelter, decided to offer Hiro a forever home. A lovely gesture that Hiro was more than glad to accept. “I made it to my new home!” the couple said on their cat behalf. “So happy! Haven’t stopped purring.”
