That Christmas magic really exists, I saw for myself. On that cold, winter morning in the pre-holiday season, God sent us an angel in the form of a tiny KITTEN. That was a really happy Catsmas Fairy tale! As we hurriedly finished our pre-holiday shopping and rushed to the car, in the parking of a shopping center, we heard a piercing meow, which seemed to be coming from our car. That said, the cat's cry was calling for help and looking for "his people", who would provide him with a warm home and warm his frozen PAWS and tortured body and soul. We walked around the car to figure out where exactly the meowing was coming from and located it, that it was most likely under the hood. Fearing that he might be injured if he was caught by the car's engine, the husband fearfully raised the hood and saw an adorable, tiny "ball of wool" that literally fit in the palm of one hand.
It was HIM - the cutest creature I've ever seen - a tiny, frightened KITTEN aged about 2.5 months. I took him in my arms and stroked him to warm him up and calm him down, which I succeeded in doing because he stopped crying. We decided to take him home, and then we will find him home since we already have our four CATS. Immediately after entering the living room, he ran to our oldest 16-year-old CAT, who was lounging in front of the fireplace and soaking up the heat. He probably thought she was his mother. However, our Tea rudely rejected him with her snorts and hisses, so he decided to move away. After satisfying his hunger with a nice cat "papa", he went to the SCRATCHING POST, where he slept for a few hours. Then came the bath. It wasn't exactly his favorite activity. He couldn't wait for it to be over, so he could go back to sleep or play with balls. It was a wonderful, already somewhat forgotten sight, because all our CATS are grown up and don't play with CAT TOYS often. Observing him like that, we realized that he reminds us a lot of our never regretted CAT Leo, who died tragically under the wheels of a car a few years ago. The similarity, which will be shown later, is not only physical but also in character. That's why we named him Leo. As far as I can see, he will be the same as his namesake - a true alpha CAT, warrior, and fighter. We fell in love with him at first sight and it was clear that we would not look for another home for him. Our home, we decided, would also be his.
However, on the second day, our little "fur ball" started peeing all over the house, even though I showed him places with CAT PADS to defecate. He would stop by them, I guess only "when he made a mistake". And he peed quite a lot and often. The last straw was when, on New Year's Eve, in a house full of guests, he peed on the couch and then on the bed. Nevertheless, we decided to keep it at least a little longer. If urinating in inappropriate places continues, we will take him to the CAT shelter in a veterinary clinic. And just as we were about to take him there, I burst into tears and couldn't tear myself away from him. I hugged him tightly, afraid that someone would take him from me. That's when it hit me - he must be sick. That's why he pees so often and profusely everywhere. I was right. Our "little one", although cheerful and playful, had a urinary tract infection and ended up on 7-day antibiotic injections. Now it's great. He no longer pees everywhere, but only on his pads. He is still playful, overjoyed to have his warm home, his cat friends, who have already accepted him, and finally - his people, who love him immensely. And I wonder: "What kind of people have the heart to leave such a small, honey KITTEN in the cold in front of a shopping mall?" They probably wanted to get rid of it, because of the problem described above, hoping that some "good people" would pick it up and take it home. But that's just my guess. What I want to point out is that ANIMALS are not stuffed toys and you don't have them, if you can't or don't want to take care of them!!! Especially DO NOT BUY them, but if you have the opportunity and possibilities, provide them with a warm home by ADOPTING!!! And to return to the beginning of the story, our little angel Leo brought us immense happiness and joy of Christmas, some inner peace and satisfaction, knowing that we helped a little being, saving him from certain death.
