Feral Cat Beat Countless Health Issues And Transformed Into A Sweet Cuddly House Cat

King George was called King George because of his bossy attitude, that greedy boy always wanted to be the center of attention and never wanted his colony’s caretaker to pet anyone else but him. Despite being very aloof and spicy when he first arrived one year ago, the black cat had turned into the friendliest one in his territory.

Hearing about this charming gentleman, Flatbush Cats‘ founder Will Zweigart visited King George himself to see whether the cat was suitable for a whole new life alongside humans. Most adult feral cats like King George don’t really want to be indoors and are also hard to be socialized, but this cat was different somehow. Since he was impressively sweet toward a total stranger like Will, the man knew right away that King George was ready for a life-changing moment.

The only problem was his health condition which was clearly not stable due to so many years living on the streets. The poor cat was in really bad shape when King George’s caretaker first brought him in as a part of a TNR (trap-neuter-return) project not so long ago. According to the kind lady, he was “all beat up and scratched” back then. It is easy to understand though, a homeless life is always harsh for everyone.

“He previously had several injuries from fighting, including a huge abscess that caused his face to swell up,” Will said. “You can see his elevated third eyelid which is a sign of Horner’s syndrome – a neurological condition often caused by blunt force trauma.”

Since an indoor environment was brand new for King Goerge, Will planned to spend all the first day helping the cat to get used to his home. However, King Goerge already settled in after only a few hours, much faster than Will thought.

Unfortunately, as Will learned more about King George, he also discovered more health issues that needed to be fixed.

“While cats may drool when they’re happy or excited, in his case he also has two fractured canine teeth broken down to the gum,” he continued. “And he had a buildup of soft tissue in his right ear canal, which caused a loss of hearing on that side. He also tested positive for FIV, which is no surprise as deep bite wounds are a common transmission source.”

King George, however, was a strong warrior. Will helped the luckless cat find a loving foster home while handling his medical issues and he had such a great time there in spite of all the pain he had been suffering. The little love bug got tons of cuddles, and of course, all the attention that he desperately needed.

“It’s sad to think that he had such a rough time out there as a kitten, but he’s making up for all that now,” Will said.

After several weeks of fighting so many diseases, King George was ready for his own kingdom. The black cat’s new mom was truly touched after hearing about his past and she had promised this little guy that he would be spoiled for the rest of his life!
