Destiny can be perverse and send us events that we don’t expect at all. It was the same this time. A woman walking in the park noticed that a small, fluffy creature that had obvious movement problems was heading towards her. She could not remain indifferent to her fate. It started working immediately.
The ginger cat had obvious problems moving
A walker who was walking along the path of a park located near a busy street noticed a ginger cat approaching her. She immediately noticed that the animal was moving in an unusual way. There was no doubt in his mind that there must be something wrong with his back legs.
Not far away, she saw two bowls: one containing food, the other filled with water. Seeing this, she described the story on social media, hoping that someone would help the redhead, take care of him and give him a loving home. It didn’t take long for this to happen.
The cat needed help
Nathalie, an animal rescuer, couldn’t help but think about the cat in the park whose existence she discovered on social media. It was clear to her that she had to go to the indicated location, find him and help him. Without further ado, she did so.
When she arrived at the park and found the cat, her suspicions were confirmed. The animal had to be taken to a veterinarian for a specialist to take a closer look at its paws. The cat was obviously happy that someone was interested in him, because he rubbed himself against the woman and purred happily.
Nathalie brought the cat home and gave him a bath, after which his fur went from dull and dirty to shiny. After a busy day, the animal snuggled up on his lap and fell asleep.
The vet didn’t have good news
After tests, it turned out that the rescuer’s fears were justified. The cat suffered from hip dysplasia, bone deformity and a dislocated limb. Nathalie contacted a local organization caring for animals in need and it was Chatons Orphelins Montréal where the cat was brought.
“We adopted him and named him Rousseau. His hind legs were weak, thin and he had no muscular strength to maintain balance,” explains one of the rescuers working in the organization.
A collection was organized to cover the costs of the operation. Thanks to this, the cat is able to move normally, even if it still has a long rehabilitation ahead of it. He is recovering in a temporary home, where he feels good. He uses the litter box himself and even jumps on the couch. He makes everyone laugh a lot, it’s impossible to be bored with him.
He’s a little sweetheart who charms everyone he meets, says his owner.
