According to the ASPCA, every year, approximately 3.4 million cats enter into animal shelters because of abuse, neglect, or abandonment.

But even more cats live and die on the streets, never lucky enough to even make it to a shelter.

That’s what was going to happen to this little kitten before she was picked up and rescued by a teacher in Brazil.

On the morning of March 3, Aline Martins was walking her dog when she saw a garbage bag that was moving…and meowing. She grabbed the sack and quickly untied the two knots that held it closed. Inside, she found a kitten — he was soaking wet and frightened.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

Martins immediately took the cat home and began caring for him. She gave the cutie a warm bath and some much-needed nourishment.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

She fashioned the kitten a bed, which he loved so much that he started purring as soon as he touched it.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

Now, this once-abandoned cat has a new home and he couldn’t be happier about it!

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

What a Good Samaritan! While not everyone can make room for a new furry friend in their home, you can always donate to your local animal shelter or volunteer there.
