Unfortunately, there are an increasing number of incidences of animal cruelty. These helpless living creatures are subjected to a variety of injustices, abuse, and other conditions that risk their life, regardless of whether they have a home or live on the perilous streets. Animals, on the other hand, are immovable in their strength, demonstrating that no matter what happens to them, they will constantly struggle to stay alive and grin despite their pain.
At least, that’s what occurred lately with Tommy, a cat who lived on the perilous streets of Antelope Valley, California, and went to one of his neighbors’ backyards every day in quest of food.
Tommy’s body was covered with terrible burns. Someone had apparently poured acid on the unfortunate animal to cause it to die. His family was affected by his pain and hurried him to a nearby veterinarian, but the doctor refused to treat him owing to the intricacy of his illness and the fact that he had tested positive for feline immunodeficiency virus.
The family, however, was not prepared to give up and sought assistance from the Sanctuary of Milo. After hearing Tommy’s tragic story, the shelter decided to provide him with all required assistance right away.
Despite the excruciating therapy, Tommy remained calm and happy that someone had taken an interest in him at long last.
“When I first brought him home, I stayed in the bathroom next to him for many nights to ensure he was not in pain or frightened. “Despite all of his injuries, hospitalizations, surgeries, and the rehabilitation process, he never stopped purring and loving humans,” said Michele Hoffman, president of the Sanctuary of Milo.
Tommy became a permanent member of the sanctuary due to the gravity of his situation, where he lives peacefully surrounded by people who love him, unaware that he is different from the other cats.
“He enjoys being out in public and meeting new people. Everyone adores him, and he is always aware when a photograph is being taken. “Tommy will do just about anything for tuna flakes, and that’s the key of his wonderful photography,” Hoffman remarked.
Tommy lost one of his eyes as a result of his injuries, but it hasn’t stopped him or made him feel guilty, and everyone who meets him discovers that he is a beautiful feline. Fortunately, Tommy has moved on from his ordeal and has discovered how to live the love life he has always deserved.
We can follow this kitten’s activities on his Instagram account, where he, together with other animals, raises awareness against animal maltreatment. They are live creatures who are entitled to a decent and pain-free existence.
