They Dyed Him Purple and Threw Him as Bait to the Dogs, But His Story Didn’t End There

Animal abuse is always awful to see, but what happened to this kitten is especially horrifying. What was done to him was sick and sadistic — but thankfully, he seems to be on the road to recovery.

This terrified kitten (who is approximately 2 months old) was dropped off at a San Jose animal shelter in California this week.

Not only was his fur dyed purple, but his body was covered in bite marks, abrasions, burns, and other injuries.

The shelter didn’t euthanize Smurf, but instead contacted the Nine Lives Foundation.

They wanted to give this kitten a chance at happiness. The organization, which is run by veterinarian Monica Rudiger, took Smurf in quickly.

The kitten’s injuries were consistent with a violent practice: using kittens as bait for dogs trained to fight.

It’s no wonder Smurf was so frightened — he only knew a life of fear and pain.

Even though he was shaved, Smurf’s skin is still blue. It’s possible that garment dye was used on Smurf and was absorbed into his skin.

Whoever did this, they deserve to rot in jail for a long, long time. Hopefully, they’ll be caught and given what they deserve.
