Before she finds a loving home, a rescued cat is only “skin and bones.”
We frequently hear tales of mistreated, abandoned, and ignored cats who have to endure horrific circumstances in order to survive. Thankfully, there are many good people in the world who will take care of them and offer them the chance to find new homes where these abandoned animals will finally get the life they deserve. One of them is Molly, who discovered an abandoned cat in a poor condition and gave it the name Dinah. She did, however, restore her health after receiving a lot of care and attention, and she now resides in a loving family.
To read Dinah’s story and view images of her remarkable change, scroll down. Dinah was in serious need of assistance when Molly first came across her on the streets, and she was aware that she required help right away. She was like skeletal skin. Before I was able to catch her, I suppose I was keeping an eye on her for at least four or five days,” she said.
When they got to the vet, they found that she had fleas all over her body; the black scars on her face were actually flea dirt! She had a severe case of dehydration and an upper respiratory infection. It was no surprise that she was having problems eating and had lost weight because she also had severe tongue ulcers.
She received IV fluids, antibiotics, and flea medicine after the veterinarian acted quickly. Diana quickly changed into a stunning, strong, and healthy kitten. After being sent to Stray Cat Alliance’s custody by the veterinarian, they found her a foster home and eventually a caring family who were prepared to adopt her into their home. Dinah had endured a great deal of trials, and Rebecca, her new owner, was aware of this.
“Unfortunately, our 14-year-old cat passed away due to a cardiac issue. We felt it was time to provide a new cat with a loving home after we had time to grieve for her. We went to a few shelters, all of which had extremely beautiful cats, but we were hoping for an instant connection. When I saw Dinah, that’s when it happened,” she said. She was reserved and shy, yet she appeared to be interested in me just as much as I was in her.
Rebecca remembers what she was thinking when she first met Dinah. She appeared to be quite interested in my husband and me, but she was incredibly hesitant and uneasy. We had little information about her past other than the fact that she was a stray kitten that the shelter had saved and that she had lived briefly in a foster home. She was eventually taken back into custody by the shelter, though.
Dinah’s new beginning came when she was adopted by Rebecca and her family. She immediately changed into a fearless, self-assured cat that was playful and delighted to be with a family she adored. She is a cute little clown who makes us smile all the time.
She enjoys playing with us and following us around the home. She enjoys “helping out” with tasks like filling the dishwasher and making the bed. She enjoys watching TV with us and essentially simply wants to participate in everything. When I hear a rescue tale with a happy outcome, it always makes my heart sing. Dinah will no doubt now live a long, happy life with a caring family.
