Little Keta was found wandering the streets of New York City: her homelessness, though, was the least of her problems. That was because the kitten was sadly suffering from a baseball-sized facial tumor. And since the cause of the gigantic growth was unknown, no one knew if the animal would survive her ordeal – or, indeed, if she would ever find her smile again.
Keta’s story began in October 2016, when Unwanted NYC Pets received a call about a cat who was in desperate need of help. The organization rescues and rehabilitates homeless animals and provides them with loving families; naturally, then, it was ready to help this particular little foundling however it could.
In this case, however, the call for assistance came from one of the city’s animal shelters, where a little kitten was thought to be on death’s door. Unfortunately, it seemed as if the odds were stacked against her before she had even reached her first birthday.
