This uplifting story comes from Imgur user hiblue.
This is when I first met “Luna” at my friend’s granite shop. No one lives in this neighborhood and there are starving strays everywhere. It’s tragic.
She was maybe 2 months old and already skin and bone.
I decided to bring her some cat food. It cost 2 bucks from a corner store a few blocks away.
Oh god…. I was not prepared for this.
Her dual colored eyes were really enchanting. Only with food in her belly did she perk up enough to show her face.
And she was very happy to have food in her belly. I sat and pet her for a solid hour before deciding to take her home.
When I got her home she ate… and ate.. and ate and ate.
She mastered the litter tray instantly.
She likes to climb.
And is really OK with water. She needed a flea bath since she was covered in them.
No crying or anything. Just relaxed in the warm water.
She was a lap cat instantly
It was a long day and she slept hard. I’ve never rescued an animal before and all of this was new to me. I can’t even begin to explain how rewarding and fulfilling it all was. It was a huge highlight of the year.
