When Persian-cross kitten Molly was saved from a rundown home in Treorchy, south Wales, in November, she was ‘at death’s door’.
Vets found a tumour in her ear canal, and she was underweight, suffering from cat flu, had an ear infection, and had a severe head tilt.
She was also showing repeated ‘circling behaviour’, which is associated with extreme distress.
Vets operated to remove the tumour, but they weren’t sure if she would ever really recover.
Then Molly was rehomed with a woman called Mrs Jackson, and the RSPCA have been stunned by how much better the kitten is doing.
Over Christmas she settled into her new home in Rhondda Cynon Taf and is on track to being a happy and healthy cat.
Her new owner said: ‘I am so pleased I could give her a new home for Christmas.
‘Life already wouldn’t be the same without her here. She is such a happy and affectionate little thing.
‘She is recovering so well and is the happiest little companion, who now has long fur, is incredibly playful and has a real zest for life.
‘She loves playing with her toys, and her circling has decreased a lot.’
RSPCA inspector Gemma Cooper added: ‘It’s miraculous – in all my years at the RSPCA I’ve rarely seen a comeback like this.
‘She’s well on the road to recovery and is the happy news we all needed this Christmas.
‘Initially her prospects were really bad, vets thought she might be at death’s door.
‘Fortunately the operation was a complete success and the staff at Maes Glas vets in Brackla were absolutely fantastic.’
