Cuddles was only a month old when his leg was broken and he never received vet care. The leg now curls under, causing him to walk with a limp and leading to sores all over his leg.

As the first snow drifted down, a good Samaritan heard a tiny mew at her door. There on her step was this tiny, limping kitten looking for a warm place to call home. But the moment the good Samaritan saw the limp, she knew Cuddles needed more help than she could provide so she rushed him to the vet to look at the leg.

"You just have to look at him and he begins to purr," tells Williams Lake branch manager, Liz Dighton. "He lives up to his name completely and wants nothing more than to be loved and held."

Cuddles needs you though before he can find his purrfect forever home. You can provide him with the surgery he needs to be happy and pain-free. You can make Cuddles purr.

Thanks to the generosity of animal-lovers like you, Cuddles has found his happy ending. After never receiving care for his broken leg, he desperately needed surgery to free him from the constant pain that it caused him.

He recovered quickly from his operation and today he enjoys being adored by his loving forever family.
