Bruce, an employee at a park in Montreal, was caught off guard when he encountered a tiny ball of fur pleading for help with his crusty eyes.
He saw the lone kitten huddled among a scattering of fallen foliage, trying to seek warmth and solace. The weather was freezing, and the air was biting. Bruce looked around for a mother cat and other littermates, but there was no sign of them.
He scooped up the kitten, warmed him in his arms, and rushed to the nearest veterinary clinic for help.

The kitten, named Richard, was estimated to be four weeks old, had an upper respiratory infection and some bald spots on his back leg due to ringworm.
He was immediately treated for his cold and given some much-needed nourishment.
Despite being sickly and barely able to open his eyes, the kitten cried for attention, using all the strength he could muster.
Richard needed a dedicated carer to continue his treatment and ensure that he was kept warm and fed adequately around the clock. The staff at the clinic reached out to their local animal rescue, hoping to give the kitten a fighting chance.
