Rambo is 14 years old, and when he thought he would receive no more affection, life gave him another chance and now he is the happiest.
A charming 14-year-old cat walked into a shelter looking lost and confused. Unfortunately, her adoptive father passed away and she was now in desperate need of a foster family. Every time the cat saw a visitor or staff member, his mood changed in hopes that he would be noticed.
The older cat was eager to get people’s attention and you could tell he didn’t want to be alone. An animal rescue group in Brisbane called Best Friends Felines learned of the adorable cat’s story and immediately arranged a foster home for him.
Best Friends Felines’ Nikki told Love Meow:
One of our kennel contacts told us about this handsome older boy. He’s sweet and friendly.
14-year-old cat is happy to be pampered again
Thanks to volunteers, the cat named Rambo was transported safely to his new foster home with a woman named Kate.
While rains and floods hampered transportation (at the time), Rambo was eventually taken care of by BFF. The poor little man was basically a walking skeleton and incredibly emaciated. Tests revealed that his levels of T4, as his skeletal structure suspected, were elevated. Right away, we put him on thyroid medication and gave him fluids and a myriad of foods.
As soon as he entered his new foster home, Rambo’s eyes lit up. In the blink of an eye, he became an affectionate kitten and clung to his adoptive mother. Being in a cozy home with a human friend has made him the happiest cat in the world.
He’s such a loving, happy little man who’s very generous with blows to the head and nose, and loves nothing more than kissing you.
The sweet orange cat was truly happy after just a few days in foster care. Rambo has become bigger and more active, even his fur has regained its soft appearance.
The lifeguard says:
He has reconciled with his (resident) canine sister, while strongly disapproving of the cat. He takes his meds like a little angel. Rambo continues to make great strides on his journey to his best version of the old one.
Thanks to veterinary care, coupled with lots of nutritious food and care, Rambo found his inner kitty and started playing again, even enjoying invading Kate’s personal space.
His favorite place is on the shoulders, being under a blanket with his humans, and wrapping his body around their legs for really long hugs.
Despite what Rambo went through after losing his first family, he never lacked love, all the 14-year-old cat wants is a warm sleep and a forever family.
Finally, Nikki said:
He’s on his own and needs to be in a home with no other cats, and he really needs someone home, because he’s very cuddly. He prefers to be wrapped around you somehow. another and enjoys the company.
