Kind man takes in stray cat after seeing him outside for two years — 5 Comments

  1. Oh wow,this reminds me so much of my own situation with my now departed ‘Mysterymine’ I wrote this the day after he passed away and the photo is him.

    My sweet beloved Mysterymine,

    Ye came into my life July 5th 2014 and I think ‘Angus’ sent ye to me from Heaven,when I saw ye on the back deck that morning ye back was to me and I quietly opened the door and bent down to look at ye and when ye looked at me I was blown away by ye skeletal form and ye left blind eye so I went back into the house and got a carrier and then I put ye inside it because I knew I could not leave ye outside,I sat ye in the carrier on the couch and got out the big dog kennel and set it up for ye and once I was done I put ye inside and ye made a nose dive for the water bowl,I just sat there and watched ye and then 1 by 1 ye soon to be siblings sniffed and checked ye out,none were aggressive towards ye at all,by the 3rd day I had ye I knew something wasnt right because ye drank so much water I was changing ye litter 3 times a day and decided to get ye seen by my vet and it was then I learned ye had diabetes which broke my heart but I pushed forward and once ye were on ye insulin ye stopped drinking so much water but boy ye loved ye wet food,soon after I bought ye a stroller and I even put ye favorite cat bed in the front passenger seat of the car and ye amazed me,ye would lay in ye bed and when I got ye stroller out of the car I would take ye into the store and even Walmart,I loved how ye drew people to ye and they would oooh and aaah at ye,I took ye for walks almost every day,then one night I saw ye bumping into the furniture and the walls and I knew something was wrong,then ye had a horrible seizure and ye cried out as the seizure took hold of ye and I got ye into the vet the next day asap and my fear ye were completely blind came true and I sobbed and held ye in my arms but the vet told me to bring ye home and refrain from giving ye any insulin so I did and by golly ye got ye sight back and no more seizures plus ye were in remission and ye did grand for almost 3 months but then ye had to start having ye insulin shots again which was okay then a family issue arose that took me to California for a few days and it was 3 day’s later after I got back I had to finally let ye go,ye had garnered luekemia in ye bone marrow,I was devastated and my heart was crushed,I had ye such a short time and even right now as I write this I am sobbing,I miss ye so badly my sweet old man.

  2. This story brought me to tears, as so many stories of kindness do. It just hurts to see defenseless animals suffering. I wish more humans had compassion in their hearts for sentient beings. 💜💜💜☯️☮️🗝️

  3. I’m so glad this sweet love was found and cared for by this caring human. Men like him are rare. Humans who abandon their furkids should die in a most painful and horrific way! I have no care or respect for those that abandon the kids. I truly hope this soul will live a long and happy life with his guardian. And I will say it is so important to get the kids teeth cleaned yearly. Infected teeth can and will harm the kidneys, liver, and heart.

  4. Great story and so true about it being rewarding as the right things to do. I brush my cats teeth with a non alcohol mouthwash when I notice the stink and have three left to bring to the vet for real work. It’s a bit costly but necessary. Really shouldn’t put it off until they get old because anesthesia risk could be an issue. No matter the cost, you’ll always feel better for doing the right thing. We all know what toothaches feel like and their a very miserable and unhealthy way to live. Quora and dodo are great sites for cat stories too, in addition to PoC which is all cat all the time.
