A small tan Tabby cat was the focus of an undercover “opurration” in the Midwestern U.S. recently.
The mission was simple but dire; get the kitten to safety and away from his former abuser.
After receiving injuries to his tiny face and head, he had been rescued by local agencies.
His “human” was arrested, not only for abusing the gentle feline, but other humans as well.
She served an unknown amount of time in jail. Horribly, as soon as she was released, she attempted to get the cat back!!!
*Yes, we are all shaking our heads in disgusted unity.*
Sadly, it get’s more shocking and appalling however.
When the woman was denied, she convinced friends to fill out applications on her behalf! WHAT?!
It was then that the shelter knew they had to take more drastic measures for this kittens life.
They couldn’t trust any of the applications they were receiving and knew he needed a fur-ever home.
They coordinated with other shelters who were located no where near them.
Volunteers and animal lovers transported the healing boy to safety.
The receiving shelter kept the new arrival under wraps for his protection.
His name was changed and he was kept off of the adoption website.
But after everything the adorable little boy had been through, he was willing to trust humans still. Thankfully, they were very compassionate and caring ones at that!
The brave cat not only made the journey to safety, he got to live at an amazing place!
You may have heard of it recently due to the now famous sleeping Cat Grandpa that visits daily….
Yup, Benny became part of the family at Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary in Wisconsin!
He made lots of friends…even participating with the humans during yoga classes!
Benny could now rest assured he’d never be hurt again.
Safe Haven knew Benny needed to find the perfect human and fur-ever home.
They were thrilled when close friends of the sanctuary decided to open their doors to the deserving boy.
The happy announcement was made yesterday.
“Luckily, Benny scored the BEST home with someone we know personally. He’s going to have an amazing life!!! Benny is officially SAFE.”
Without your dedication, unwavering focus and truly angelic hearts, the world would have less Benny’s to love.
We’d sure hate to live in that world.
REMEMBER: ADOPT, DON’T SHOP; FOSTERING SAVES LIVES & SPAY AND NEUTER!
