Noticing just how hungry the cat was, he let him continue to eat.
“He said Cotton [the name he was given] came out of nowhere and started eating from the bowl of food he had for his cat,” said Carmen Weinberg, founder of Animal Friends Project. “He said Cotton seemed very hungry, like if he had not eaten in days.”
The man rushed to his house to get a carrier and placed some food inside, and because he was so hungry, the cat walked right into the carrier.
Having treated cats suffering from the same condition, she knew she had to help.
“Early the next morning, I drove to pick him up. I took him immediately to my vet, Justin Bartlett Animal Hospital, and they confirmed that he was suffering from mange, was very dehydrated and malnourished,” Weinberg said.
“He purred the whole time they were examining him!” she said. “He received antibiotics, a dose of Revolution, and fluids and we went home. Fortunately, I had a spare bathroom where he could stay.”
“My husband Don, son Carlos and daughter Elisa, are used to dealing with cats with many illnesses and we knew that if we took some precautions, that we could still touch and love Cotton to help him heal,” she said.
“Cotton is very vocal and he would make noise to let us know that he wanted attention,” she added. “He loves people and searches for attention. He wants to be where you are.”
This lucky boy is totally transformed and can’t wait to find his forever home!
