When Titus was just three months old, he was captured in a feral trap and brought to an animal shelter in South Carolina.
He was seriously underweight at just 14 ounces. He had a grossly protruding eye, an awful upper respiratory infection and was seriously malnourished.
The staff determined that he was too far gone to be rescued and scheduled him for euthanasia to end his suffering.
When Holly Wise from Union, South Carolina held tiny Titus, she knew there was some fight in him left. As soon as she scooped him up, the little boy began to purr.
With Wise's loving care, Titus began to gain weight and recover from his upper respiratory infection. Soon, he was ready to have his eye surgically removed.
In an interview with Cats Meow Lovers, Kaitlyn Roy explains that it was Paws Up Rescue and Resources (PURR) that arranged for Titus to become her new foster baby.
He's doing much better now and has grown into quite the handsome gentleman...
