A cat who was found wandering around a motel, hopped into a car seeking help. His life was changed forever.
Shawna was in Burlington NC when she spotted a black and white cat wandering around the parking lot of a motel, scrounging for food near the dumpsters.
The cat was sickly, rough around the edges, and very hungry. Shawna couldn’t leave him out to fend for himself in such a condition. After giving him some food that she had with her, the friendly stray followed her to her car.
“He hopped right in her car seeking warmth and shelter,” Sparkle Cat Rescue shared.
The friendly stray made himself comfortable inside the vehicle, as if he was ready to embark on a new journey to somewhere warm and safe.
Shawna reached out to Sparkle Cat Rescue, so her newly acquainted feline friend, Nick, could get the medical attention he desperately needed.
Nick went home with his rescuer that day. He bade farewell to life on the streets and never looked back.
The next day, Nick was seen by a veterinarian. He was estimated to be eight years old and didn’t have a microchip. They discovered infections in his mouth and that he was missing a few teeth. Once he was healthy and strong enough, he would need full dental work.
Nick was started on treatment for an upper respiratory infection, and began his healing process in the comfort of a loving home.
Despite everything he’d gone through, Nick continued to trust and was a bundle of love from day one. He adored all the soft things in the house, and would rub up against his people, purring up a storm.
“He is very friendly and seeks out head scratches. He wants to be where the people are. He doesn’t like it but willingly takes his meds and is eating well,” Shawna said.
Nick started to fill out and gain strength. He was so grateful to be indoors and have food and comfort within grasp. He insisted on being close to people, so he could revel in their company.
