Remember the Kitten Found Covered in Purple Paint? This Is What He Looks Like Today

You wouldn't believe his transformation!

A miraculous rescue

It's been almost two years now since poor little Smurf the kitten was saved from his terrible situation. The weak 7-week-old was found on the side of the road with many wounds, and although his exact backstory remains a mystery, it was suspected that humans had used him as a "toy" to train dogs to fight.

Thanks to an incredible rescue and medical care from Nine Lives Foundation, though, he is now safe and happy in his forever home.

And you wouldn't believe how much he's changed!
