Couple Saves an Emaciated Cat From Being Euthanized. His Transformation Is Heartwarming…

According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), 7.6 million animals are admitted to shelters every year with 3.4 million of them being cats. Sadly, 2.7 million of those animals (1.4 million cats) are not adopted and shelters have no choice but to have them euthanized.

One of these cats will not be part of that statistic because a loving couple, Danny and Hannah, adopted him even when he was labeled ‘unadoptable.’ When the shelter received him, he only weighted 7 pounds, was emaciated, and was expected to be around 6-8 years old. Danny and Hannah turned his life around and it will warm your heart.
