A litter of feral kittens were rescued from the elements just in time to save their lives.
"These angels were born on the street to a feral mum cat, they were exposed to the cold, rain, disease and parasites that their poor mum could not protect them from."
These four little kittens were taken to Rescue Me Animal Sanctuary, where they were said to be so weak they wouldn't have survived another day in the wild.
"Their mum had given birth to them under a shed, she has now been spayed," Rescue Me Animal Sanctuary said.
They suffered from a flu that had spread to their lungs, which gave them pneumonia. The infections in their eyes had been so bad they weren't able to see.
"These pictures do not even show the true extent of their eye problems: the tics and fleas crawling all over them as they slowly died off after their treatments and the sounds they were making simply trying to breathe."
Unfortunately the little girl didn't make it, but her brothers were fighting hard to survive.
"They had fleas like I have never seen (work in a vet's and done rescue for 15 years) ticks, flu, eye ulcers, conjunctivitis, starving, dehydrated and anemia," their foster mom, Heather said.
That's when one of the kitten's eyes stopped responding to the drops.
The vet then suggested something out of the ordinary to help the poor animal.
