Valentino the Cat: Finding Love After Being Left Behind by Family
Roaming the neighborhood alone, he had to fend for himself without any security. He scoured the area for sustenance and a cozy shelter to rest. Eventually, the fluffy boy stumbled upon a nearby porch where he was recognized by a compassionate neighbor who noticed that he was an abandoned Ragdoll. Despite her husband’s severe cat allergies, the kind-hearted woman took Valentinо in and placed him in a secure spot in her garage, far away from her husband
Sadly, due to the risk of allergies, the cat couldn’t stay with the woman for too long. However, she was thoughtful enough to have someone in mind who could help little Valentina. Luckily, she knew Debbie Harris, a renowned cat fosterer, and she was confident that she would be able to provide the necessary care for the abandoned feline.
From being homeless, Valentina was about to find a new and loving home thanks to the kindness and helpfulness of these amazing individuals.
Debbie has been taking care of cats and kittens since 2004, and when she saw a photo of Valentinо, she was immediately smitten and decided to adopt him. Upon taking Valentinо to the veterinarian, Debbie discovered that he was a great cat. According to her Instagram post, Valentinо was very relaxed and greeted everyone with purrs and rubs. The staff at the veterinarian’s office were all impressed by him. When Valentinо was rescued, he was sneezing and had an URІ, most likely from being out in the cold. Debbie suspected this and her suspicions were confirmed by the vet. She helped Valentinо recover and during their time together, she realized that she would not be able to let him go and became a “foster fail.”
As soon as the attractive young man’s photos were posted on Instagram, adoption inquiries flooded in. However, Valentinо, also known as Mr. Fluffypants, had already found a home! “I believe it’s safe to say that he is enjoying his new luxurious life.” He adapted well to toys and cat towers, but it was a bit challenging for him to get along with his two new siblings, JоJо and Lil Man. Fortunately, with Debbie, a caring cat mom, at work, the new furry family members soon settled into a happy, albeit occasionally sassy groove. Some sibling squabbles are ordinary in any family, aren’t they? Kindness saves cats!
Valentino’s fate would have been drastically different if it weren’t for the kindness of strangers. In disbelief, Debbie expressed her confusion at how a family could leave their pets behind when they sold their home and moved away. Sadly, Valentino was abandoned by his family and left to fend for himself. As fellow cat lovers, it is difficult for us to comprehend such actions. However, we do recognize the importance of kind-hearted individuals like Debbie and her co-worker who go above and beyond to help cats in desperate situations.
