There’s no arguing that stray cats are already unhappy. However, according to their living situation, age, and health condition, some stray cats are even more miserable than others. Even after they’ve been rescued, such animals are the least likely to be adopted, and many shelters prefer to abandon them due to many of the issues that they’re not prepared to address.
Frisbee, on the other hand, was a lucky kid. When the Lowell TNR Coalition spotted him a while back, he was coated in dirt and matting as a result of spending so many days walking the streets. Despite the fact that he had been saved, this cat had a long way to go before he could finally live quietly like a regular cat, and thankfully, the Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society (MRFRS) in Salisbury, Massachusetts had kindly taken him in.
“He originally was found outside, severely matted (worst we have ever seen) and very hungry,” the shelter shared about Frisbee. “He was discovered to be friendly after being caught as part of a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program.”
Frisbee was around ten years old at the time. Anyone could tell by his scruffy appearance that this young man had spent a long time on the streets. After feeding the unhappy cat, the first thing they did was spend hours cutting off his matted fur and tangles. But it isn’t the end of his issues.
The MRFRS continued, “Half of his teeth were missing.” “The ones that remained were in such bad shape that they had to be removed all at once.” He had a stubborn symptomatically infection in his mouth that required lifelong treatment.”
The miserable kitty tested positive for FIV, which would have been another cause for any shelter to abandon him, but happily MRFRS didn’t. Frisbee stayed with them for months to help them overcome significant health challenges, and he was always happy to express them his love and thanks during that difficult period.
Eventually, thanks to their care, Frisbee was ready for adoption. The ginger boy quickly found someone who truly adored him.
“I knew I had to make the hour-and-a-half drive up to Salisbury to pay Dad a visit. After seeing his images on the internet, his new mother Donna Atkins remarked, “It was love at first sight.” “He loves being a spoiled house cat, and it’s all thanks to you, MRFRS!” I’ll make a gift in Buffy’s honor, and I appreciate everything you do for individuals who are unable to speak for themselves!
“You guys are great!”
Well Donna, you rock too! Buffy (formerly called Frisbee) is now enjoying a great life with Donna alongside his sister Baby.
Look how gorgeous he became!
Our planet is still a lovely world thanks to amazing people like the MRFRS staff. Buffy, have a wonderful life!
