Thread: Stray Injured Cat Picks A Human To Adopt

Most times, adopting a pet is a conscious decision. You make plans, you go to shelters, you choose your new lifelong companion. True, you may change your mind and adopt a senior pet instead of a baby pet at the last second, but it's your choice. Except when it isn't. Sometimes, it's the animals who adopt their humans, and we can do nothing but give them the love and affection that they ask for. The following story is one of those times. 

A guy who had no plans whatsoever to have a cat could not help but give the cat food when he saw that the cat needed it, and the rest.. is history. Now, this beautiful stray cat has a forever homeof its own with the man who rescued it, and we are so happy for both of them.

    "Last week I found this cat under my car. He was extremely skinny and kept meowing at me to get my attention. After I came home from work I decided to give it a can of tuna since it was all I had to feed it. He was a bit apprehensive when I put it on my porch so I went back inside."

    "Of course, I creeped on the cat through the window. After a few minutes it came out from under the car and approached the can of tuna. I have never seen a cat eat a can of anything so fast. I noticed he was skinnier than I first thought and had a big cut behind his ear."

    "After a few days of approaching me when I got home from work and me giving it tuna I decided it probably needed proper cat food. So I went to the store and bought wet and dry food along with treats. I wasn't sure what he wanted so I served him a bowl of both and he ate both."

    "A week a later of having regular meals and it looks to me like he has already gained a little weight. If he keeps hanging around I plan on taking him to the vet and bringing him inside. I've never had a cat before and I'm not sure how this works but I think I just got adopted."

    "Yeah this pretty much sums me up,

    "So, update on my previous post about the stray cat that adopted me. He was a stray who just showed up on my driveway one day. He was thin, starving and had fleas. After feeding him and gaining his trust for a few weeks I had decided to take him to the vet and finally bring him inside. A few days after the last post I had decided to take him to the vet the following weekend. Also, trying to figure out how to get him into a cat carrier.

    "Apparently, it wasn't necessary because one night he kept meowing at my door. It was strange since it was not like him. I went outside to see what was going on and noticed he was favoring one side. As I went to rub his left side he yelled in pain when i got past his ribs. After a few seconds of deliberation I headed to the nearest Walmart to get the things I needed (it was around 10 at night so my options were limited). As soon as I got home i brought him in.

    "As you can see from the second picture he made himself right at home. He didn't leave my side the rest of the night.

    "The next day he went to the vet where I learned that he was around 10 months old and had surprisingly good teeth. The pain on his side was caused by an abscess that he got after a cat fight he got into. The vet drained it and let the hole close up on it's own. It took around two weeks for it to close.

    "As you can see now he is a cuddler and has slowly but surely made the house his. He follows me around everywhere and makes sure I'm not too far from him. He's happy, healthy and honestly that's all that matters to me."
