This Stray and Sick Cold Cat Finally Has the Best Home Any Animal Could Have

Life is not easy on everyone. Specially for animals. What would you do if a sick and cold stray cat knocks on your window?

In the winter season, this woman heard a noise coming from her backyard. Once she checked where the sound was coming from, she saw an orange sick cat who was so weak, barely meowing.

However, she was kind enough to contact the founder of Un Chat à la Fois, Marie Simarda, a kitten rescue in Quebec, Canada.

“It broke my heart to see him, so I told her to take the cat to the vet and not even 30 minutes later, he was at our partner clinic,” Simard commented.

“He went into the carrier by himself and once he got to the vet, he was very easy-going, he let the vet do the checkup, the blood test and X-rays, the cat was not feral at all,” Simard told. And the cat was named after Aslan, honoring the lion in The Chronicles of Narnia series.

“We thought he was a lost cat because he was just too friendly to be born outside. He didn’t have a microchip and was not neutered. We assumed he was left behind by irresponsible owners. We have many cats left behind by people—people that cannot afford to pay the vet care. We checked everywhere for a missing cat but we found nothing.”

“Aslan had rotten teeth, frostbite, a bite wound (he was bleeding somewhere on his body), fleas, worms, he had diabetes and skin allergy. His blood work was very bad and he had to stay hospitalized a few days so he could be stabilized before going to his foster family. He got surgery for his rotten teeth. He also had issues with his eyes, which were taken care of with surgery.”

According to the vet, Aslan wouldn’t have survived if he didn’t receive the medication on time.

Aslan is a friendly cat. He enjoyed being in company with the staff and let others pet him. Maybe that’s why he recovered so soon, because finally his heart is full of joy and tummy is full with delicious meals.

Once Aslan was healthy enough, Simard told Aslan’s foster mom that she can take him home. But she said that it seems like Aslan has found his home with the vet. So, it would be better if they keep him. And Simard agreed.

 “He had become friends with 2 rescue cats, Cleo and Jasmin. Jasmin sadly passed away, but Aslan is very close to Cleo. Aslan has a special diet due to his diabetes, but he likes food! In fact, his mom needs to closely watch her own plates because Aslan would not hesitate to steal her food. Sometimes, she makes an exception and gives him a treat. Aslan is a very affectionate cat. He forgot his outdoor life, he doesn’t try to go outside. He likes to sleep on her pillow and he likes to cuddle.”
