A cat who was just skin and bones, walked up to people asking for help. In just a month, she made an incredible transformation.
Meagan Licari, president of Puppy Kitty NY City, was apprised of a scrawny stray cat walking up to people in a parking lot. She was in very bad shape.
With the help of volunteers, the cat was safely brought into the rescue that night. She was extremely emaciated, covered in filth, missing patches of fur and had a severe upper respiratory infection.
Meagan started treating and cleaning the cat named Papaya and gave her some fluids for the night. “Papaya was begging for help. We were the help she was looking for,” Meagan shared.
Within three days of great care, good food and comfort, Papaya regained some strength and was able to eat more. She still had a lot of healing to do but was finally on the mend.
Over the next month, Papaya spent the majority of her days in the hospital. Her nose and eyes began to clear up and she could breathe much easier.
By the end of the month, she made a full recovery and was spayed and ready to find a loving home where she could be the center of attention.
When Papaya arrived in foster care, awaiting her forever home, she decided to wriggle her way into everyone’s heart.
Papaya was in rough shape when she was found. Now, she has blossomed into quite the stunner and found the family of her dreams.
