Furiends, one of my fellow special needs cats who I admire the most is Spirit, A Blind Cat. This brave feline was the victim of horrible animal abuse, but he managed to escape and found a human who provides him with a loving home. Spirit clearly has not forgotten where he came from. In fact, recently, he was a vital part of a cat rescue mission.
Spirit’s human had a friend who had trapped a feral cat, who she thought was pregnant. This feline was taken to the humans in white coats to be spayed, and during the procedure, the humans in white coats said that she had given birth.
This feral cat had been seen around a construction site, and had been known to take refuge under a temporary trailer. Well, Spirit’s human and a furiend were able to get access to the site so that they could begin the cat rescue.
Half of the ground under the trailer where the kittens were suspected to have been born was under water. The other half was mud. Spirit and his two human helpers went searching for the kittens through this mess.
It took a while, but Spirit detected something. He alerted the humans helping him search for the kittens that he found them. They were located just beneath the floor of the trailer. A heavy plastic sheet kept them above the ground.
The humans who Spirit helped with the cat rescue slowly removed the kittens from the barrier. There were four of these little felines. Each one was placed in a clean towel, and then in a warm box.
They are now being cleaned, fed, and kept warm. And because of Spirit, this cat rescue happened just in time. The weather conditions where these felines were rescued are likely to drop close to freezing tonight.
Because of Spirit’s help, two humans were able to perform a desperately needed cat rescue. It is wonderful to see a feline like Spirit helping other felines!
