The ginger girl was taken in by the San Jose Animal Care Center about a month ago. She looked visibly grumpy due to unbearable ailment that she had to endure.

When Dr. Sharon Ostermann, the animal shelter veterinarian met the little kitten, she could tell the kitten was in a lot of discomfort.

The kitten had feline scabies, a miserable condition that causes hair loss and a lot of itchiness.

"There is no clearer way to see how miserable scabies can make an animal than seeing the transformation of this one tiny kitten," Dr. Ostermann shares with Love Meow.

"She wouldn't move much. She would sit, with squinted eyes, looking miserable."

Her scabby, crusty skin was a clear tell tale sign of what the kitten was battling with.

Dr. Ostermann and her team began treatment for the little rescue feline and gave her what she needed to bring joy back into that little face.

Over the next month, the little kitten's change was drastic.

She went from nearly not budging at all to jumping around and trying to play with everyone.

"A few weeks into her recovery, she was already looking happier and seemingly in less pain," Dr. Ostermann said.

The ginger girl discovered her new found energy, and her playfulness was unleashed.

After she was completely healed, she was spayed and put up for adoption. In no time, she found her forever loving home!
