Why had the owners brought about killing the cat?
This is a happy ending story. However, it starts in a not-so-happy way. A small group of people who were in charge of feeding a colony of stray cats, one day noticed a very sweet red cat, but with an injured paw. It was immediately evident that he was in pain and they did not want him to be still ill. They decided that the cat was destined to die.
These people had become convinced that the best thing for him to do was take him to the veterinarian to have it suppressed. But the vet, Dr. Matt McGlasson had other plans in mind.
At The Dodo, McGlasson explained that his staff know he has a thing for cats. During the period of lockdown caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, while their children were taking lessons from home, they rescued and rehabilitated four kittens. For this reason, when the volunteers brought him that sweet red cat to kill him, he, after visiting him, decided that there were absolutely no grounds for euthanasia and, indeed, asked them to entrust him with that cat.
The vet, in fact, had decided that that cat should not be killed, but should be treated. And once he recovered, he could find a perfect home all to himself. The cat was renamed Nemo by followers of Dr. McGlasson’s TikTok. Unfortunately, the paw was so badly damaged that the vet and his staff were forced to have an amputation.
However, the surgery was successful and the big cat did not have any complications. So, while Nemo healed and he was able to walk on three legs, his sweet and sunny character conquered everyone. Nemo is, in fact, a very sociable cat with people: he loves everyone.
The new life of the cat destined to die
McGlasson was tempted to take Nemo home with him, but he already had other cats and wasn’t sure he could fit him too. But fortunately one of the veterinary technicians of the structure fell madly in love with Nemo and decided to take him home with him.
Now Nemo has a home of his own: not only has he adapted perfectly to scurrying around on three legs, but he loves being a house cat. When Nemo made his first appearance at the veterinary clinic, everyone understood that this big cat deserved to have the chance to live a happy life in his own home. And this possibility was given to him. Nemo took full advantage of it.
