Meet Kelvin, the sad cat.

Kelvin’s backstory was heartbreaking. For four years, he lived as a stray on the streets of Melbourne.

Crated and forced to sit in his own feces, the abused cat had large scratches, abscesses, and ear mites and required medical attention.

Instead of being taken to the vet, Kelvin was dropped off at the pound. After waiting months for his forever home, the heartbroken cat felt hopeless.

Twist of fate
