It is estimated that between 60 and 100 million homeless cats live in the United States, and most of them have very little interaction with us humans. Feral cats are afraid of humans because they have been fending for themselves from a young age and never had the opportunity to socialize and learn to trust and love people. But thankfully, there are still many dedicated individuals out there who are willing to help stray cats through their tough times.
One morning, when Jamie saw a beautiful homeless cat roaming her neighborhood, she realized she had to do something to help the poor feline. She and her boyfriend gave the cat some food, then noticed that she had returned the next day for food again.
After receiving some free meals, the stray cat started to trust the couple. They quickly formed quite the trusting bond and became the best friends. But when the cat showed up recently, Jamie saw that she wasn’t alone.
She brought a tiny, orange kitten along with her, and she asked Jamie to help him. Jamie immediately saw that there was something wrong with the kitten. Once she looked closely, she noticed that the kitty’s hip might be broken.
This mama cat felt that she could trust Jamie and left the injured kitten with her. Jamie and her boyfriend rushed the kitten to the vet, where they discovered he had a broken fibula and tibia, and he would need a cast for at least three weeks.
They named him Milo and took him in their house to nurse him back to health. The kitten is happy to be inside with the humans who love and care for him. Now, Milo is healing up nicely and is inseparable from his new owners.
His mother still visits regularly to check out her baby and get some food, but she prefers to do her own thing outdoors. “I think she’s just so used to being outside,” says Jamie. However, Jamie hopes one day that she may have the courage to join little Milo inside.
