Céline Crom, who belongs to the Chatons Orphelins Montreal rescue center in Montreal, Canada, saw a cat prowling outside her house earlier this year. The cat was hungry and desperately looking for food; he was very shy and wouldn’t let anyone near him, so to help him, Céline left food and water on the balcony every day, and she decided to call him Luckyou.
Despite her fear of people, Luckyou came back every day to eat and quench her thirst. It was clear that the feline needed medical attention, so Celine prepared a humane trap and set it up very close to the feeding station in her house.
Celine told Love Meow:
“He came back to eat regularly and I noticed he couldn’t keep his mouth shut. I knew I had to save him.”
The cat goes back to the woman who was nice to him
“I put treats in there and the same day Luckyou walked in (as if he was ready to leave the street).”
The fearful feline was in poor condition and covered in dirt. After examination, it was estimated that Luckyou was around seven years old, after the medical check, he tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus FIV.
“He couldn’t close his mouth or bite food (due to an infection) and lived in pain. It was no surprise for a cat that had lived outside for many years. He also needed dental surgery to help him recover.”
The tabby feline had very little human contact during the time it lived on the streets. At first he was terrified at the sight of people, but as soon as he started to heal and feel better, his attitude gradually changed.
“Everything went well. He’s barely got any teeth and his little tongue is sticking out now, which adds to his charm. We’ve had all of Luckyou’s knots removed and now he can sleep soundly.”
After receiving the medical care he needed and spending time in a home with a loving foster family, his creepy exterior slowly faded and Luckyou became a constantly purring machine.
“He came out of his shell and made the cutest meows to get attention. He stopped hissing and became more curious and calm.”
The woman says:
“Luckyou is loved and pampered by his keepers, Morgana and Alvin. After hiding for two weeks, he has warmed up to them and started showing his kind and caring side. He is very sweet and affectionate. He purrs loudly and sticks out his tongue when happy. His favorite things are food and attention. He gets along well with the resident cat, Ferdinand.”
The tabby cat has come a long way since the day he decided to seek help from Celine and is now a happy, loving boy.
Finally, Celine said:
“Luckyou had a tough life, but now he’s thriving and is finally ready to find his own family, who understand his needs and are ready to love him forever.”
