A couple from the United States built a small fenced yard for their beloved cats. It is right next to the house and the cats can breathe fresh air there. Since then, Gerrie and Loki enjoy spending their free time there, sleeping and playing.
Recently, while the cats were playing in their backyard, a furry guest came up to them. The kitty had been watching them for a long time and wanted to make friends. At first, the owners thought it was just a neighbor’s cat – until he started coming more and more often.
The owners asked around and it turned out that the cat was a stray. So the family decided to help. They named the cat Ziggy, and built him a separate little “house” next to the cat’s yard.
The cold weather was coming and the couple decided it was the perfect solution for the cat. Ziggy himself was very grateful, and immediately fell in love with his personal home. The family left food for him there, and were always happy to see him.
At first Ziggy was very timid, if someone tried to approach him, he immediately ran away. But the couple managed to gain his trust. After a few weeks, they were able to pet him and get to know him better and found a small lesion on his neck. They had to take the cat to the vet.
At the clinic, Ziggy received the necessary treatment, and then the couple took him back to their house to recover. They kept him in a separate room where they cared for him for several days. After the kitty recovered, they introduced him to their house cats.
“After a few weeks of feeding, I could finally touch him while he was eating,” Renee, the cats’ mom (who asked that her last name not be included), told The Dodo. “But as soon as he finished his food, he didn’t want to be touched.”
“After he had surgery, we kept him in a separated room for a few days,” Renee said. “After a few days, we let him meet Gerrie and Loki again. Luckily they still got along, so we decided to keep Ziggy with us.”
Even then, the couple decided – they were so used to him that they weren’t ready to say goodbye. That’s how Ziggy found loving owners! It took him some time to adjust, but now Ziggy is perfectly happy. He has caring owners, a warm home, and two happy brothers, which is something he wouldn’t have dreamed of until recently. Thank you to the kind couple for rescuing him!
