VERY MUCH DOWN ON HIS LUCK, SUFFERING FROM TERRIBLE EYE PROBLEMS AND UPPER RESPIRATORY ISSUES, THE ONLY THING FETTY THE SICKLY STREET CAT HAD GOING FOR HIM CAME IN THE FORM OF HIS SISTER.
Storm, his sister, was Fetty’s best friend, his guardian angel, his protector. Up until this point in his life in 2017, she was the only thing that kept him going.
This was when Flatbush Cats founder, Will, met the pair while out doing a TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) program. Then his rescue was still relatively new, lacking the resources to help many street cats like it nan today.
Unable to turn his back on Fetty, Will could see he would not be able to survive life on the streets much longer, something would need to be done and done soon.
Knowing he would have to trap Fetty to provide the care he needed, he was also well aware the brother-sister duo were inseparable, so they would have to be rescued together. Once the trap was set, Fetty wandered in unable to resist the food, and yes, Storm went right in to, just to be with her brother.
Well past the window need to easily socialize a kitten or cat, it was not going to be easy for Will to gain their trust.
–Completely blind in both eyes, he was fighting a losing battle competing with his siblings for a better chance at life.
–Hearing her voice, the ring leader changed course, with her siblings trotting along behind, doing their best to keep up!
However, after loads of love care, and attention, along with a ready supply of irresistible chicken baby food, Will was surprised how quickly the pair revealed their soft side. Fetty, who was terrified of humans, along with Storm who was more than a little Spicy, both quickly revealed their soft inner kitten.
Blind in one eye, Fetty had that removed and was treated for a severe upper respiratory infection. He was soon feeling much better about himself.
Both he and his sister were quickly adjusting to indoor life, and the creature comforts that go along with it. Soon they were exploring every nook and cranny of their new home and learning to love humans.
The road to full recovery was very quick, and soon the pair were ready for adoption.
By now Will had grown very attached to both cats, but he knew they deserved home where they could be the focus of attention.
Needless to say, he found them just that.
