During the summer of 2015, a woman was out walking her dog when she caught the attention of a stray cat. The two-year-old feline was seeking affection and decided to follow the woman home. Little did he know that this spontaneous decision would bring about a significant change in his life. This cross-eyed cat found himself off the streets and on a new journey. This touching story recounts how a chance encounter led to a new beginning for a cat in need.
With the help of Holly, she got a chance to interact with a friendly little fellow who was seeking her affection. On closer inspection, it became apparent that the poor creature was in dire straits. It was evident that he was undernourished and suffering from ringworm and fleas. Despite his misfortune, the little guy maintained a jovial and playful demeanor.
Thanks to Holly’s kindness, a dog with crossed eyes and a silly personality was affectionately nicknamed Homer, reminiscent of the famous character from The Simpsons. Holly wasted no time bringing him to the vet for necessary medical treatment, including neutering, flea and ringworm treatment, and general cleanliness. In preparation for his future care, she arranged for a foster to take over while he recovered at the vet’s office.
Thanks to Holly’s kindness In search of a temporary home Unfortunately, the foster parent who was supposed to take in this particular cat had to cancel at the last minute. The owner was left in a state of confusion, trying to figure out what to do next. With no other options in mind, she couldn’t keep the cat until he finished his ringworm treatment as she was already caring for several cats and didn’t want to risk an outbreak.
Thanks to Holly, the cat found a foster home while he recovered from ringworm. The shelter was unable to take him due to various constraints, but Holly, a volunteer pre-veterinary student, stepped in to offer her assistance. She agreed to look after him for three weeks until he was better. Homer, as he was called, went to live with Holly and her dog, Hammy.
With the assistance of Holly, Homer was receiving the necessary care that he required. Although, Holly’s intention was for the original rescuer to take responsibility for Homer after his ringworm was treated. Yet, as it turned out, Homer’s charm had exceeded Holly’s expectations.
Holly generously shared that after the three weeks of foster period ended, the previous owner called her inquiring about getting Homer back. However, Holly decided to keep him as she had developed an attachment towards Homer during his treatment and he has been living with her ever since.
With the help of his loving owner Holly, Homer embarked on a journey to Louisiana for vet school. Lucky for him, Holly has now become a veterinarian and is fully equipped to attend to all of his special needs. These days, Homer spends most of his time indoors with occasional outdoor playtime under careful supervision.
With a big grin on his face, Homer loves nothing more than going for a ride in the car with Holly’s other feline friend, Valentino, and her loyal pup, Hammy. The trio has become the best of friends and when they’re not busy playing, you can catch them lounging on the couch or snuggled up in a cozy laundry basket. Holly adores her furry companions, especially Homer, and we’re sure he’ll live out the rest of his days indulging in all the happiness and treats he deserves.
