Earlier I had mentioned that someone I know had adopted the kitty, Sunny, that had been abandoned under a car last month in freezing weather. The man who found him, Chuck O., took him to the vet and nursed him back to health but with a new baby and two cats, was not in the position to keep him.
Enter our own John Farrell, a.k.a. Iceman, and his wife, Dale Marie, whom I recently learned fell in love with Sunny and have officially adopted him:
When Chuck found the cat, he weighed less than a pound, suffering from severe hypothermia, dehydration and full body tremors. The 24-hour clinic didn’t think he’d live. Chuck had them put the cat in the incubator and feed it intravenously. He did live and after taking him to the vet yesterday, he is now 3.1 pounds and in good health.
About an inch of his tail is now dead, as is the tip of one of his ears, and the vet hopes they fall off naturally. Chuck’s Mom and Dad nurtured Sunny (this after Chuck spent approx $600 to save an abandoned kitty left to die) back to life.
After my wife, Dale, read his story and how Chuck saved him, we couldn’t help but give this guy the home the deserves. We picked him up late Sunday afternoon and he has already changed our lives. Damn, I love this little guy.
