14 Million People Looked Right Past Her. But A Seven-Year-Old Possessed An Open Eye And Heart.
When we think of kittens we think of cute. We don’t think of a ravaged feline living out of a garbage can. Indeed this was the case on the streets of Istanbul. A scary looking kitten who cried day and night was being passed by thousands and perhaps millions of people.
Every day, the local populace would walk by the kitten without even noticing it. Istanbul has 14 million inhabitants. No one even spared a moment. Deplorable…
Thankfully, this (still) anonymous girl’s father was a doctor and she brought it to him as quickly as possible.
Once there, a nurse lovingly cared for this little patient. It was no small task considering his face was infested with maggots and mites.
Nevertheless, with a little love and devotion, they managed to save this poor creature and nurse it back to health. The girl named it Gülümser, meaning “she who always smiles”. A fitting name!
Now they are absolutely inseparable. This is the only existing photo of our little anonymous rescuer. They instantly became one heart and soul together.
After only a couple of weeks, Gülümser was visibly recovering. The wounds healed and her fur slowly grew back.
A thousand thanks to this anonymous little girl. If she hadn’t acted so fast and selflessly, Gülümser would probably no longer be here. What a lovely story!
