The story of this cat is sad and happy at the same time! For his short life while he suffered a severe test, lost his eyes and nearly died.
Fate was not favorable to this defenseless and such a lonely beast, but, fortunately, in his life appeared loving and caring people.
The name is Saveliy, he is not more than two years old. As he spent his last winter on the street – it is unknown, but in the spring he felt very bad. Sava died and desperately asked people for help. One good woman took pity on the poor fellow and took him to the veterinary clinic, leaving a little money for treatment. Doctors put a disappointing diagnosis – severe exhaustion and the worst – complete loss of eyes.
What happened to Savoy is unknown. Perhaps, over a small defenseless cat someone mocked. Or maybe he lost his eyes because of an infection. Anyway, it’s hard to imagine what this unfortunate beast suffered, because he had to endure terrible pain, somehow get food, get used to blindness, hide from dogs and survive with all his might.
Fortunately, in the A. Fillmore clinic, Sava was pitied and left to be treated, despite the fact that there are no curators or a hospital for homeless animals. Moreover, the website of the clinic has a forum about homeless animals that are treated in the clinic and are looking for a family, because there is no cure to treat the animal, which then has nowhere to go … On this site Sava saw a sympathetic girl named Anna.
When she paid attention to Savelia, he was a little black very very sad panther … The information accompanying the photographs began with the title “A Cat Who Never See Nothing”. Quite quickly, a small support group for Saveliy was organized. People began to raise funds for his treatment. Anna went to the clinic to transfer some money for this particular cat, because he had to be treated, and then the operation on the eyes – it was necessary to remove what was left and sew up the eyelids.
“When I saw the unfortunate animal, my heart was just bursting with pity,” Anna said. – Imagine a picture: a young, emaciated, blind cat very loudly growls, turning his head to the voice, while one of his front legs stretches toward the man through the grate, and the other, on which he stands, he tries to “sort out”. He is uncomfortable to stand, but he wants to show with all his might how HE LOVES MAN! No matter what, the cat believed people! … “.
Sava was put in a small cell next to other unhappy dogs and cats. For about a week he was treated, then he underwent surgery. Anna during this time was looking for someone who could take the cat for an overexposure, because the girl herself had three pets, and she simply could not keep Savelia. And then, Sava agreed to take Anna’s colleague – Svetlana.
When the cat was brought to her, he was skinny with a shaved face and did not understand why he was dragged. Perceived everything with some sort of doomed calm. Together they learned to communicate. Savely got used to not enough all at once with his paws, and Svetlana in time to remove her hands. She shared: “For example, if you hold the palm over his head, he makes a sharp leap and clings to it. I did not have time to squeak, as all 20 claws were already in my hand. At the same time he did not miss, one movement and booty in his paws, he always clawed his teeth, and surely. ”
Fortunately, Sveta always had animals, and she already had experience of nursing sick animals. And, in addition, by a fluke, the girl had a friend who worked as a nurse, and problems with injections that had to be done within 10 days were resolved. There was one more unpleasant procedure – treatment of stitches on sewn eyes. “It all looked terrible,” Svetlana says. – Half-shaved muzzle, sticking out of sewn-on eyeliner threads … ». Who would have thought that the cat would sit, not moving, while he was treated with inflamed wounds! He just waited patiently until the procedures were over, and only then jumped off the bed and left. He rumbled quietly and for some reason did not miaow at all …In the following days, eye care was carried out according to the accelerated program: Svetlana was wetting cotton pads with a solution and sticking them to her eyes, and the cat was sitting, not trying to shake its head or remove them from the muzzle with the paws. After 3-5 minutes, an ointment was applied, while no one was holding the cat, but he did not even turn his face away. “This is how much you have to be an optimist, after all that has been experienced, to trust people!”, Sveta was surprised.
There was another difficulty – food! A starving cat grabbed everything on the fly. It was necessary to open the refrigerator, and he flew in a bullet on any shelf, just to grab something to eat. If he could feel the food in his hands, he would sit in a bunny and beg. I had to feed literally a teaspoon every couple of hours, until I got used to a normal diet. It took 2-3 months to understand that you will not have to starve again, and the food will not be taken away.
