A cat who was left in a parking lot, is thankful to a couple for opening their home. She turns out to be a “total treasure”.
Last month, an employee of Hearts Alive Village (an animal rescue in Las Vegas) spotted a pet bag with a cat inside, abandoned in a parking spot.
The finder immediately took the cat into their rescue, and they were able to locate a microchip. When they called the number, the owner expressed that they could no longer afford her care and keep the cat.
Hearts Alive Village took her on, and Nikki Martinez and her husband (Foster Papi) welcomed her into their foster home.
The cat was around 13 years old when she was left alone in the parking lot. With a new lease on life, Nikki and her husband were ready to give her the “royal treatment” that she so deserved.
They lovingly called her Dolly and provided a comfy, quiet room for her to decompress.
Dolly explored around her space, checking out all the amenities before settling in her new favorite spot by the window.
“She had some medical issues (tummy troubles and infected teeth), and she needed a dental cleaning,” Nikki told us. “She landed in a safe space where she’ll be cared and loved for until she is ready for her forever family.”
Dolly was immediately friendly and eager for attention. She quickly felt at home and was thankful to have someone cater to her needs.
She was a good sport whenever she received meds for her mouth, as if she knew they were helping her. With a new diet, her stomach issues started to improve, and her appetite increased.
Dolly fully revels in feline entertainment, watching birds and cars go by through the window while soaking up the warm sun.
She will turn into mush when Nikki gives her head scritches. If Nikki is sitting on the floor, she will come running with her purr motor rumbling along.
