Stories of abandoned cats sometimes sound like fairytales. Abandoned and neglected, they are thrown out onto the streets and have to survive in terrible conditions but then, one day, kind people find them and take them home, where these cats completely transform and blossom. That’s the story of a stray cat named Dinah, who once was thrown out onto the street, but now lives in a loving home!
In July 2019, a girl named Molly Sotak first noticed Dinah, who was in very bad shape. Molly tracked her for a few days and realized that she was very sick and needed a vet. “She was like skin and bones. I think I was keeping a tab on her for probably about four or five days before I was actually able to catch her,” Molly told the Dodo.
“Well, the black on her face is fleas and flea dirt! Her whole body is infested with fleas. She is emaciated, dehydrated, has a severe upper respiratory infection and painful ulcers on her tongue, which are consistent with calicivirus. Between the congestion and ulcers, no wonder she can’t eat. She is now getting flea meds, antibiotics, and IV fluids,” wrote Stray Cat Alliance on their Instagram about Dinah’s medical condition.
They got Dinah a medical check-up and took care of everything. In no time, what was once a stray cat transformed into a beautiful, strong, and healthy feline. She even found a loving family and a perfect home. Her new owner—Rebecca Schneider—saw that Dinah had gone through a lot of hardships. But that didn’t stop her from adopting the kitty and giving her a new beginning. Now Dinah is a brave and confident cat who loves to play and make her family happy.
