Garfield survived a hit-and-run, and had suffered a fracture at two different points in his leg as a result. When he first came to the RESQ Centre, not only was he in immense pain, but he was also severely dehydrated and battling an infection, and was practically on the verge of death. His leg was so badly damaged, we knew we had no choice but to amputate it. Thankfully, with some loving care and medical attention (not to mention Garfield's own fighting spirit), we nursed him back to health, and he was back on 3 legs in barely 2 months’ time!
Now, Garfield is the happiest, cuddliest little 6-year old you will ever see. Despite the fact that he has been looking for his forever family for nearly a year, he embraces each new day with a smile on his face, and is one of the happiest cats we've ever seen! He's a truly special cat that effortlessly personifies that fighting spirit we love so much. Not only is Garfield a cool cat, but he's also SUPER affectionate and will do anything for a cuddle. Just sing to him, "If you're happy and you know it, say--" and hear him respond with "MEOWW!"
