Reading about stray animals who are abandoned on the streets and must endure appalling conditions is upsetting. But fortunately, there are many of good individuals out there who are eager to support them and provide them with a home, where they entirely change and flourish. That is the tale of Dinah, a stray cat that was once dumped on the streets but now dwells in a loving household.
In July 2019, a kind girl named Molly Sotak noticed Dinah, who was in very bad shape, trying to survive by herself in the streets of LA. Dinah was very sick and needed a vet, so Molly contacted the Stray Cat Alliance and they agreed to care for the kitten.
He had significant health issues and needed a vet.
“She was like skin and bones. I think I was keeping a tab on her for probably about four or five days before I was actually able to catch her,” Molly told The Dodo.
In a hurry, the volunteers picked up Dinah and drove him to the doctor.
“Well, the flea grime and black on her face are caused by fleas! She has fleas all over her body. She exhibits signs of calicivirus, including emaciation, dehydration, a severe upper respiratory infection, and painful tongue ulcers.
It seems sense that she can’t eat given her ulcers and congestion. Dinah is currently receiving IV fluids, antibiotics, and flea medication, according to a post on Stray Cat Alliance’s Instagram account.
Thankfully, the kitten quickly healed and found a loving family. Her new owner, Rebecca Schneider adopted her and gave her a new beginning. Now Dinah is a happy and a healthy cat who loves cuddling and playing. We are happy to know that he is enjoying a pampered life that he deserves.
Now Dinah is a brave and confident cat!
“She is a fluffy little clown, she always has us laughing. She loves to play and follow us all around the house. She likes to ‘help out’ with chores like making the bed and loading the dishwasher. She likes watching TV with us and overall just wants to be a part of whatever is going on.”
