For an unknown reason, humans poured acid on this friendly feline's face. Fortunately, he still adores people - especially those who show him love.
One of the characteristics of domesticated animals that makes them so incredible is their willingness to love and forgive those who, at one point or another, wronged them. An incredible example of this was recently shared by Love Meow, and it might just cause you to reach for tissues.
For some unknown reason, humans deliberately poured acid on a friendly feline’s head in June of this year. Pain and lonely, the stray cat was eventually found wandering the streets in California. Thanks to one kind woman, the cream-colored cat was taken to a vet. Unfortunately, the animal doctor didn’t know what he or she was doing. They gave the cat antibiotics, tested him for FIV+, and then suggested that the cat be put down. Fortunately, the woman didn’t follow the vet’s advice and contacted Milo’s Sanctuary.
The non-profit specializes in giving cats with disabilities, who are seniors, have a terminal illness, or have been abused by humans a second chance at life. These animals have often suffered trauma, so the staff are exceptionally compassionate toward all who are rescued.
Reportedly, workers at Milo’s Sanctuary named the feline Sir Thomas Trueheart and rushed the cat to a more reputable veterinarian. There, Sir Thomas spent over a month on antibiotics and pain medications. Sugar bandages were also used to help the wound over his eye heal and granulate. Skin surgery helped repair parts of his face that were damaged.
The cat was brave throughout the entire ordeal and didn’t think twice about offering kisses and purrs to those who were caring for him. The unconditional love he continues to present people – despite being mutilated by a human in the past – is heartwarming. At present, Sir Thomas is at Lifetime Care Foster. If you were touched by his story, consider sponsoring the grateful cat to help him continue on his healing journey.
