8/31/23 – Mobile homes were being removed and the stray cats were being kicked out. Bob was one of those found hiding under a trailer which was scheduled for removal. He appeared to be in a great deal of pain. His story was posted on August 15 and he was scheduled to be seen at Patterson Veterinary, Clinton Twp., on August 22. Last night I received this update from his rescuer, Carolyn:
“Bob had his initial appt last week at Patterson and his follow up checkup yesterday and he is doing amazingly well, so much better that I even thought he would be. The vet at Patterson said she couldn’t bear to see Bob suffer a moment longer and pulled his teeth at his first appt. He had stomatitis and a painful infection. I was so astounded by their level of caring there, I truly didn’t even know what to say. That level of empathy seems to be missing at so many vet offices these days and it literally made me tear up to see it. They took such good care of Bob, cleaned him up as much as they could, treated his ears and everything. Bob was like a new cat that very night. He was no longer hissy and was kneading his blanket and bumping his forehead up for pets. And a week later, he is doing amazing! He is eating dry food again and grooming himself on a regular basis. This is such a transformation that I didn’t think was possible. I think Bob is ready to let go of his outdoor life and become a loved indoor kitty to some lucky adopter.
Another miracle made possible because of you Diana and 4 paws 1.heart!! And Patterson Vet! They are truly wonderful there, everyone that works there. As are you!! Please….tell me what I can do to thank you! I appreciate you all so very much, thank you, thank you, thank you!! -Carolyn”
