Last Sunday, Ruth Rickard, who is the deputy manager of Gables Farm Dogs and Cats Home, had an interesting start to her day. As she was opening the shelter, she saw a pet carrier placed outside the facility and quickly realized that there was a cat inside.
The feline was cramped inside a carrier devoid of any cozy blankets or cushions. The container seemed damp and cold, with only a single towel covering it, implying that the cat had been left outside for an extended period. When Rickard stumbled upon the cat, it appeared terrified and shivering, to add to its misery, the feline was also quite small.
The carrier containing the cat had a note from its previous owner attached to it. The note stated that the feline suffered from persistent diarrhea and wouldn’t use a litter box. Due to the owner’s concern for the cat’s health and lack of knowledge on how to handle the situation, the cat was abandoned outside the shelter.
Without delay, Rickard took the cat indoors for a thorough check-up. The shelter workers christened her Dusty Bin. Initially, Dusty was petrified and preferred to stay concealed in an attempt to adapt to her new environment. She was notably weak and underweight for a feline of her age.
After finding a new home at the shelter, it was discovered that the cat wasn’t as sick as her previous owner believed. Rickard, a representative from the organization, explained that the owner’s letter claimed the cat had chronic diarrhea and didn’t use a litter box. However, the cat was doing well at the shelter, using her litter boxes properly, eating regularly, and showing no signs of diarrhea. It was a great relief to know that the cat was in good health and wouldn’t need to be put down.
Further examinations will be conducted to ensure Dusty’s overall well-being, but the team is positive that she’ll be available for adoption in two to three weeks. The shelter is still searching for Dusty’s previous owner and wishes they had taken responsibility for her instead of abandoning her outside.
