“He loves lounging in the sun on top of our boxes and has shelter from the rain.”
Back in March, when a little kitten arrived behind Jada Hamby’s shop, she was naturally concerned. It was soon apparent that the kitten was not only deaf but also blind. With his peculiarities, she and her staff were worried about the kitten being left alone. A couple other rescue organizations were called to see if they could assist, and they agreed to send someone to collect him.
The kitty, however, had other ideas.
Hamby informed us that “Rescues arrived on many times and tried various means of catching him.” He was too intelligent for any of their ploys.
No matter what they did, they couldn’t capture him, and he looked happy about it. The kitty, who was given the moniker Dumpster as a result of his discovery, had made his intentions obvious. He had no desire to change his lifestyle as a shop cat; he was completely content with it.
Once it was established that Dumpster was secure and pleased with his surroundings, the rescuers arrived to the conclusion that, even if they were able to capture him, it would probably be preferable to neuter him before releasing him back to his neighborhood near the shop.
As you can guess, a blind cat finds it extremely crucial that someone be familiar with the environment, according to Hamby.
Hamby and her workers take great care of the dumpster. They’ve talked to a veterinarian to ensure his health is under control, and they routinely check on him to make sure he’s still prospering.
He enjoys sunbathing on top of our boxes where he is protected from the weather, according to Hamby. “He meows at us and demands breakfast every morning! He loves to converse with us and is a very talkative cat.
Dumpster still doesn’t seem entirely at ease being handled, but he just let one of the staff members to pat him for the first time, so who knows what the future may bring?
Hamby added, “We’re recognizing that as a victory regardless of whether it was a consensual petting or whether our warehouse man was just able to be particularly covert.
Dumpster will inform his folks if he ever thinks he’s had enough of being a shop cat. He’s satisfied where he is for the time being. Even though Dumpster’s life may be a little unusual, he loves it, and in the end, that’s all that matters.
