Laurie Farris once noticed a small kitten on the sidewalk.
A skinny, dirty furball with an unusual appearance clearly needed help.
The baby ran after her to the car, and the woman decided to take her to the veterinary clinic.
Experts have determined that in front of them is a 5-week-old cat.
In addition to fleas, eye infections, parasites in the intestines and a defect of the face, Down’s syndrome was also revealed.
Veterinarians offered only one option – euthanasia, supposedly such an “ugly” kitten is unlikely to be sheltered.
But Lori decided that the baby had a chance, and took her to her home.
She named the cat Willow – in honor of the street on which she found her.
Arriving at a new home, the kitty immediately became friends with Laurie’s dog, Ella.
The woman took the care and treatment of the sick Willow into her own hands, and thanks to her endless and sincere love, she quickly recovered.
Two years later, the once shabby cat has turned into a beauty that captivates with its uniqueness.
“I think people love her because Willow is a symbol of kindness, love and beauty, despite physical imperfections,” Laurie continues.
As for the friendship between Willow and Ella, the two remain inseparable from the first day they met.
Once this cat could not even think how one woman would radically change her life.
Laurie gave Willow the most important thing – her love, and the kitty is happy to repay her with double gratitude!
