Horribly Injured Tiny Kitten Makes The Most Miraculous Recovery Ever!

Animals can make some of the most amazing transformations, even if the face of serious hardship. Simba the kitten is no exception! TikTok creator brich1126 found a little kitten abandoned in her barn and immediately noticed that the little one had something severely wrong with his eyes. 

The vet confirmed that the abandoned kitten was suffering from corneal ulcers in both eyes and also had an infestation of fleas. Despite immediate veterinary intervention, the ulcers continued to grow. The ulcer in Simba the kitten’s right eye grew particularly rapidly, leading the vet to remove the eye soon after the creator found him.

After the removal of his eye, Simba began to finally heal. His other eye began to show signs of improvement, and Simba began to show signs of livelihood as well. Though Simba bonded quickly with the creator and their dog, Vinny, the kitten finally began increasing his activity and even playing!

He began to learn how to play with toys and even began having little bouts of “zoomies” jumping on his owner and Vinny the dog. 

As the owner updates on their page, we continue to see Simba’s health improve more and his personality shine through.

Though the vet confirms that Simba the kitten will most likely always be blind in his remaining eye, he doesn’t let that slow him down in the slightest. Simba continues to play, using his keen sense of hearing to make up for what he lacks in sight. Those sensitive whiskers don’t hurt, either!  

This adorable little kitten serves as an amazing inspiration to all. With quick medical intervention from veterinary staff, thanks to the help of his new owner, Simba was able to make a miraculous recovery.

But most touching of all was Simba’s unyielding spirit in the face of all the hardships he suffered. As soon as he received medical attention, the little kitten began showing off his personality and bonding with an owner he couldn’t even see. Despite all he had faced, he still showed an astounding ability to trust.
