Vet advised that we euthanise dumpster cat we found. We said No — 22 Comments

  1. What a heart warming story and a pretty darling cat we need something heart warming and positive to counteract all the awful cruelty out there 🙁 She is one lucky baby but sounds like you are too to have her in your life i wish people would realise that the love of an animal is a beautiful gift to be treasured not to abuse and kicked in the gutter 🙁

  2. One of my cats just recently passed away at the ripe old age of 21. He was a “throw away” that I started leaving food out for about 18 years ago. He was a very frightened, almost feral cat that I worked with for many months to even get the privilege to touch. Eventually he accepted being a house cat and was the best cat I’ve ever had although I’ve loved them all. He turned into a loving lap cat that loved me as much as I loved him. I believe it was his way of saying “thank you for saving me”. He is truly missed!

    • Linda, I love your comment because I sort of understand it as I am fostering a semi-feral kitten and it is nice to know that he might end up a loyal and beautiful lap cat companion. I think he will. I’ll probably adopt him because once you domesticate a feral cat you can’t let go.

      • I hope he does become a sweet, loving cat and he likely will. It’s all about building trust but it sounds like you have the love, compassion, and patience to see it through. The best of wishes for a happy, wonderful outcome.

  3. Thank you all so very much. It’s a wonderful feeling to know people care about and love animals as we do. They are a gift to this world.

  4. It’s heartwarming to know there are still people out there who care so much. So glad to hear KitKat thrived and proved the vets wrong.

    Vera: Your daughter is a credit to you. She’s clearly been raised to show love and compassion. If there were more people like the two of you, the world would be a much kinder and happier place.

  5. God Bless ya.

    Your reward in this world is your wonderful kitty.

    Your reward in the next is likely unimaginable.

    KitKat is beautiful, as are you.

  6. We have so many against all odds stories. My second oldest Little Bitt is one of them 4 weeks old tossed out on a busy road two vets wanted to put her down one refused to let her I the hospital! Well she is 16 this year! You know Michael maybe we should do a Happy Ending section to balance the hell we have to deal with! Like a Chicken Soup for the cat lovers soul!

  7. What a wonderful story! I’m so glad you gave Kitkat a chance and that she recovered and is having a happy healthy life.
    It’s lovely to read about such kindness and dedication to one little abused cat who the vet wrote off.
    The photo of her is beautiful, thank you so much for sharing this with us 🙂

    • I was impressed. Vera’s behavior is the exact opposite to the ignorant sh*t who dumped the cat and 1000x better. Can you imagine dumping a living cat in a black bag in a trash can and walking away? These people have no soul or mind. They are sociopaths.

      • People who do that are pure evil! Our little Bryan we had years ago was dumped in a pond in a carrier bag with a brick in too, he was just a young kitten, he wasn’t hurt but he was cold and wet and terrified.

  8. You know that I love your story. Thanks for taking the time to stop at the site to write it.

    It is inspiring and what I like is the way you resisted the advice of your vet. That was a key moment and the reason why it makes the title.

    It takes commitment to resist a vet and then to provide consistent TLC for a long time.

    Everyone should be like that as far as I am concerned.
