16 year old blind and deaf stray cat finally gets a home
Meet Muir, an older kitty who just wants some love.
“I intend to give this old man a more comfortable retirement,” said ladyonawire. “I work with a rescue. This old guy was living outside for close to a year; he had belonged to an older lady in the neighborhood who passed away,” she added.
Muir waz abandoned until a kind neighbor rescued him and turned him over to the rescue. They shaved hiz matted coat and gave him plenty of food, warmth and love.
“My rescue asked if I wanted to foster him and I was like… I’m adopting him. I’ve had him for about two months now and he’s put on nearly a pound and his fur is growing back beautifully.”
“He got a full blood workup and physical when he came in. Even got some much-needed dental work! The vet actually said his thyroid was fine; that in fact he was in shockingly good shape for his age and how much he’d been through.”
“The first night I brought him home he slept on a heating pad on my bed. He was so skinny he looked like a plucked chicken–he just passed out and spent the first couple of days sleeping in every warm/soft spot he could find.”
“Now his personality has come out and he’s a super sweet if slightly grumpy and bossy old man. He likes to perch on the edge of the bed and reach out with his paw to grab me when I pass by.”
Congratulations on your new home, Muir! Hazah!
