At times, people do the most horrifying things to animals and it truly touches our heart. That was the case with this frightened little kitten, Smurf, who was painted purple and then thrown to the dogs in order to train them to fight. Along with the bite marks on his body, there were also burns and other injuries.
When Smurf was taken to the animal shelter, they opted not to euthanize him. Rather, they contacted the Nine Lives Foundation, who helped to nurse Smurf back to health. Although he is frightened, his spirit is still intact and he is on his way to recovery.
