Runt was a stray cat all his life until he came into the hands of Emily Blythe. When she rescued him, he had suffered countless injuries to his face and ears, he was malnourished and had a respiratory infection.
The cat was 14 years old, under unfortunate circumstances, and Runt was in very poor health. He received immediate and rigorous treatment, and after a few weeks of recovery, the cat was ready to enter a foster home.
Emily took him home and was surprised to see how quickly Runt settled into his new home. The cat had an incredible relationship with the other older cats and was not happy about it, he behaved as if the house had always been his.
Seeing Runt’s behavior, she knew she couldn’t leave Emily, so she decided to give that cat at heart the home she had been waiting for 14 years. Now Runt had come to a new home to stay.
Finally, little by little, Emily began to realize that her decision had been very wise. Runt was not only loving, kind and very gentle, but he also had a wonderful relationship with the other animals in the house, whether they were cats or dogs.
On one occasion, Emily brought home a very poor newborn kitten. She at first believed that he would not survive, but if the kitten was now alive and well it was thanks to Runt.
Runt took it upon himself to adopt the newborn kitten and cared for him with such enthusiasm and dedication that the little orphan was able to get along with this loving grandfather as an excellent substitute for his mother. Emily would never have made it without her beloved cat.
The same thing happened with Dolly and Rhys, two other little orphans who were temporarily fostered. Runt made it a point to take this couple in and helped them not only regain their health, but also learn how to interact healthily with other animals.
Nowadays, whenever an orphaned kitten is brought home, Lunt becomes its father. He loves and cares for them as if his purpose in life is to make all other rescued animals feel better.
At Emily’s house, Runt lives with Sassy, Pixie and Petunia. She is a very affectionate cat with a wound on her face from a very hard childhood at the hands of cruel people. Now all of them form a beautiful family and are in charge of helping the other animals to overcome their sad beginnings and go to their happy homes.
