It’s heartbreaking to see how unkempt homeless animals can appear. However, this particular street cat is especially difficult to view without feeling emotional.
The reason behind his presence on the streets remains a mystery. It’s possible that he was born and raised there or perhaps he was cruelly abandoned by someone. Regardless of his origin story, it’s clear that the crimson feline endured unimaginable pain and suffering that no living creature should ever have to face. Evidence of repeated physical abuse is evident as his delicate eye bore the scars of a brutal attack, and his once luscious coat was now patchy and filthy. Fortunately, the compassion of kind-hearted individuals led to his discovery and eventual rescue from the harsh realities of life on the streets.
I am grateful that there are kind-hearted individuals who are willing to provide a home and aid to an ill animal, allowing it to regain its strength and stand on all fours again.
After being taken to the veterinarian, it was evident that the cat’s recovery process would be a lengthy one. The wounds on its body and ulcers were tended to, and its eye was stitched up to promote healing.
The little baby patiently accepted the medical care being given to him and even attempted to purr when those who saved him lovingly caressed his head.
