On Valentine’s Day, a lady heard tears from her garden. She came upon an orange tabby in the snow, who appeared to be damaged.
As if appealing for help, the cat pawed at the door and meowed.
Marie Simard received a photo of the cat from the lady, who works as a foster volunteer for Un Chat à la Fois, a Quebec kitten rescue. Simard, creator of Un Chat à la Fois, told The Dodo, “She indicated she was trying to save him since she knew we didn’t take adult cats.” “As soon as I saw the photograph, I told her to send him to our partner facility so he could be evaluated because it shattered my heart.”
“His gaze conveyed all that needed to be said,” she claimed. “He waited in front of her door for a long, and when I told her to retrieve him, he didn’t try to run.”
The veterinarian found that the cat did, in fact, require clinic treatment. He had frostbite, rotten teeth, diabetes, and bite wounds, fleas, and ticks all over him. Simard realized that the stray would not have survived another harsh winter if he hadn’t sought out the assistance he so desperately needed.
The cat was simply pleased to be back in the presence of humans, despite his weakness. Simard noted, “He was pretty cordial to the clinic employees.” “At the vet, he’d remove his paw from the cage so that others might pet him.”
After the lion from “The Chronicles of Narnia,” Simard named the cat Aslan. After a few days at the clinic, Aslan’s health improved, and he was placed in a foster home, where he quickly made friends with his new mom’s cats.
Aslan expressed his gratitude to his foster mother for keeping him safe and comfortable every day.
He was characterized as a “very affectionate cat” by Simard. “He prefers to sleep in the same room as his foster mother.”
