A homeless kitten spotted covered in oil reveals her beautiful fur and her life is changed forever
A small homeless kitten was spotted with dirt and motor grease all over his body in South Gate, California. A caring individual noticed the young kitten and tried to save him, moving him to a safe spot and seeking help on social media. The hairstylist from One 4 One Grooming and More hurried over to the little man and started to feed and rehydrate him. The homeless kitten appeared to be in poor health, and its hunger was clear; they instantly decided to seek help from local shelters.
Friends for Life Rescue Network of Southern California responded to the call. The hairdresser washed the cat before handing it over, and seeing him after all that dust was shocking. “We assumed he was nearly four weeks old,” said Jacqueline DeAmor, co-founder of Friends for Life Rescue Network, “but he was actually seven weeks old and weighed just a pound.”
The lovely cat, who now had beautiful white fur, was given the name ‘Lazlo.’ When he arrived at the rescue facility, he was dehydrated and weak. The small child was unable to keep anything down and had to be taken to the doctor. Lazlo had challenges, including as obtaining IV fluids and entering and leaving the clinic on many occasions, but the kitty showed his will to live by meowing loudly to his carer. Jacqueline agreed to take him in and care for him 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Lazlo began to be feed with a syringe, and he couldn’t even stand up since he was so weak. They also raised the temperature and provided blankets to keep everyone warm. After 24 hours, the small fighter began to react and feed on his own, and he even requested the attention of his keepers. He appeared to be grateful for the treatment he received.
Lazlo was ready to leave the clinic after several visits and examinations by four veterinarians. “He was smiling and not resting on the water dish due to dehydration,” Jacqueline said. He was routinely gaining weight after a few days, and a week later, he came entirely out of the shadows and returned to his adopted home.”
The beautiful homeless kitty was confronted with yet another obstacle. Lazlo is deaf in both ears, but that doesn’t stop him from acting like any other cat. He’s relentless and always looks to be in a cheerful mood. “We don’t know what was wrong because all of the testing came back negative,” Jacqueline added, “but he’s doing fine today.” He’s grown into a really lively young man.”
Lazlo now has a huge appetite and has quickly regained weight. His personality is developing, and he is a naughty little man who enjoys watching everything that moves around him. “We couldn’t really analyze his genuine nature when he was poorly,” her foster mother, Kaitlyn Hemphill, recalls, “but now that he’s well, we can tell that he’s absolutely crazy.” It’s a lively little thing.”
According to Kaitlyn, Lazlo can run around the room for hours without tiring himself out, but when he’s quieter, he’s a sweet little boy who purrs quietly. The kitten is fully healthy and energetic, all he needs now is something to jump on. Lazlo is a restless youngster who enjoys biting people’s feet and trying to bite them when someone passes by. Without a sure, the kitten is very active.
Kaitlyn goes on: “He has a wonderfully entertaining personality!” We are pleased that he is alive, healthy, and joyful.”
