Far too many cats need good homes. While most people adopt cute cats, only a handful are willing to adopt cats that no one else seems to want. When Rachel Brown went looking to adopt a cat to save it from an animal shelter that kills unadaptable animals, she ran across Jon Snow.

Jon Snow¬†was found ¬†alone in an alleyway in South Korea, struggling to survive. He was starving, dehydrated and had a severe upper respiratory infection. Veterinarians feared Jon Snow wouldn’t survive even with medical treatment but Rachel refused to listen.

Miraculously, Jon Snow survived and became a dear companion after all. So the next time you see a cat that needs help, do your best to save it. One day that cat may repay your kindness by making your life better with its presence.
