At the time, he was limping and sometimes aggressive. Bear would swat and bite, but with lots of time, patience, and yummy treats, the cat, then thought to be around 8 years old, left the dangerous street life behind. As he recovered from his injuries, he became a treasured part of the family.
“While recovering, he turned out to be the sweetest cat in the world? Ever? Has FHV and refractory stomatitis, no teeth. Best cat award,” Haley shared on Twitter.
“Finders keepers!” Haley said after adopting Bear.
We share this story to honor Bear’s memory. What an amazing and life he had thanks to Haley! It shows that former feral cats can sometimes make the best companions of all.
