A woman in Alberta, Canada, never thought that a simple act of taking out the trash could have such a big impact on her life. One day, while taking out the trash as usual, she noticed a strange movement inside the backpack lying in the trash can.
Worried, she opened her backpack to find another sealed bag, checked what was inside and was shocked to discover a very weak cat. The poor animal was injured and in dire need of care, so she quickly called Alberta Animal Services, who brought the cat to its facility for immediate care.
Veterinarians quickly realized that the cat was the victim of a lot of ᴀʙᴜsᴇ. An examination revealed that the cat had sᴜꜰꜰᴏᴄᴀᴛᴇᴅ, leading to neurological problems and ʙʟɪɴᴅɴᴇss. Not only was he ʙʟɪɴᴅ, but he also ʙʀᴏᴋᴇ his pelvis and was starving.
Erica Coomber, executive director of Alberta Animal Services, said: “The poor cat suffered a serious head injury and no one is sure if he will survive.”
Coomber said: “At this point, his neurological problems are not getting any better. “What this kitten has been through is horrible and we hope and pray that we can help him get through this and make a full recovery.”
But with the help of veterinarians and staff, he began to regain his sight. Despite his predicament, he has proven that he is a fighter. We hope that with proper care he can go on to make a full recovery.
Coomber says that despite his cruelty, he loves everyone and that he sought affection from the staff at the animal care center.
As soon as he hears or sees animal caretakers, he begins to growl and demand cuddles. The shelter decided to name him “Hiro”, after a character from the TV show Heroes. We are delighted to hear that he is now living a healthy and happy life with his loving new family.
As soon as Hiro was named we believed it was perfect because he fought relentlessly for his life. He really is a super Hiro. All heroes deserve a cape.
