WHEN SHE FIRST SAW THE CAT ON THE STREET IT WAS IN A TERRIBLE STATE, JUST SKIN AND BONE SHE WAS CLEARLY STRUGGLING TO SURVIVE!
Out one-day Molly saw a stay cat walking the streets in a terrible state. The poor animal was dehydrated and practically emaciated, she needed immediate help. It was to take days of careful tracking before she was finally able to catch her.
“She was like skin and bones. I think I was keeping a tab on her for probably about four or five days before I was actually able to catch her,” she explained.
She took the sick feline to a vet right away for a thorough examination and found the cat’s condition was worse than the had first thought.
The first thing the vet found was that she was covered in fleas, infested would probably be a better word. The black marks around her eyes were not from and eye infection, they were actually flea dirt!
She was also extremely dehydrated and suffering from an upper respiratory infection.
Along with these issues she had what must be very painful ulcers on her tongue so it was no surprise she was so skinny, she was having trouble eating.
The vet swung into action right away and put the former stray onto IV fluids and gave her a dose of flea medication.

SOON A TRANSFORMATION BEGAN.
The sick kitty responded to treatment almost immediately the transformation from an extremely sick cat to a beautiful cat began.
Once she was out of the woods the much healthier cat was transferred into the care of the Stray Cat Alliance who soon found her a foster home.
From there it didn’t take very long for her to find a loving family who wanted to adopt her.
Her new owner, Rebecca, knew that the cat, now named Dinah, had gone through a lot of hardships. “Our cat of 14 years had developed a heart condition and sadly passed away. After mourning her, we decided that it was time to give a new kitty a loving home.”
“We visited a handful of shelters, all had very lovely cats, but we were waiting for the instant connection. It happened when I saw Dinah. She was shy and somewhat cautious but seemed as interested in me as I was in her,” she said.
Rebecca recalls her thoughts from when she first saw Dinah:
“She seemed very interested in us (my husband and I) but she was terribly shy and unsure.
We didn’t know much about her history, just that she was a stray kitten that had been rescued by the shelter and that she had spent some time in a foster home.
But ultimately, she ended up back in the shelter’s care.”
Being adopted by Rebecca and her family was the new beginning that Dinah needed.
She quickly transformed into a brave and confident cat, playful and happy to be with a family that she loved.
“She is a fluffy little clown, she always has us laughing. She loves to play and follow us all around the house.
She likes to ‘help out’ with chores like making the bed and loading the dishwasher.
She likes watching TV with us and overall just wants to be a part of whatever is going on.”
It always makes my heart sing when I hear a rescue story that has a happy ending.
I’m sure that Dinah will now have a long, happy life with a loving family.
