A couple rescued a beautiful-eyed cat who was frequently seen outside their home, but they had to first devise a plan to gain her trust. Betty H. and her husband have seen a cat walking about their yard aimlessly.
They wanted to help the small kitten since she had strange eyes, was shy, was usually dirty, and seemed hungry.
Because the young girl was wary, the couple had to approach her gently until she realized everything was fine.
“We started giving her food and drink to help her, and she began to accept our help”, Betty said.
Since then, Betty had made it a point to feed her three times a day, but each time with the purpose of gaining her trust, which was difficult. The pair felt compelled to go through the process to save the cat they named ‘Fluffy’ after several days went by with no one showing up to claim her.
“At first, I remained really quiet, but as Fluffy gained accustomed to my presence, I began conversing with her while she ate and drank. At first, I tried to softly caress her. She had clearly never belonged to anyone.”
Fluffy finally got her courage together and followed the couple home. They were ecstatic since they had achieved their aim, and the adorable cat would now join the family.
Betty explained: “I gave her her first bath, something she had probably never had before. Her snout was stained black, and she had an orange residue on her legs that was impossible to remove. She had enormous ugly knots in her fur and was losing her hair.”
Fluffy purred as she was wrapped in a beautiful towel and curled up in her adoptive father’s arms after her bath.
“I’ve never heard a cat purr quite like this one.” After taking her to the vet, we discovered she had parasites, a gastrointestinal condition, and ear mites.”
In the days that followed, she was treated for health difficulties and had her hair cut to remove all the knots.
Her second pet, a cat named Lacie, was quick to embrace the newcomer and the two became fast friends; Lacie has become much more playful as a result. Fluffy, on the other hand, is not far behind; in just a few weeks, the small female went from being an abandoned kitten to a happy, joyful soul.
“Fluffy has puppy-like behavior. She’s the liveliest, most playful cat I’ve ever met.”
The couple is now fortunate to have a beautiful member of their family; the first thing they notice when they enter the house is her wonderful face.
Fluffy reluctantly let Betty touch her, but after a few caresses, she flinched, despite the fact that progress was being made. Fluffy gained confidence as she realized they were there to help her with patience and calmness.
Her behavior began to improve, and she transitioned from a fear of human touch to a need for a lot of attention and more caresses.
“Before she ate or ended her life on the street, she sincerely desired to be petted. Witnessing such behavior astounded me.”
She also enjoys watching the birds out the window, much like a spoiled indoor cat.
What would have happened if the couple hadn’t spared Fluffy is uncertain, but she is content in her new home, which is full of love.
