Matea was riding her bicycle home after work when she came across a cat wandering alone along a busy major street, and she felt she had to do something to assist him.
«I was cycling along my normal path. I observed a little ball of fluff as I reached the crossing and realized it was a tiny, visibly emaciated kitten.”
While the small kid stood there watching, the woman got off her bike and approached the kitten to take it into her care.
Matea was approached by a kitten who appeared to be ready to be taken up and given the assistance he craved. Matea later placed the kitten in his rucksack so that he could be carried safely; the cat was only skin and bones at the time.
He was, however, overjoyed and glad to get assistance, to the point that he opted to unwind and take a lengthy nap throughout the journey.
«I slept with my dress tucked into the back of my bag. She was in a foul mood the first day, but I believe she eventually realized she could relax and sleep ».
The mother took the tabby cat to the vet, who informed her that she was underweight and just half the size she should be. But he was determined to survive and face hardship, so they knew that with proper care, he would thrive.
The kitten’s appearance was really charming, and his large ears made him look like Gizmo, a well-known character from the film “Gremlins,” which is how he received his name.
Matea had left work later that day and was able to find the kitten, thus it was possible that fate had placed him in her path.
Gizmo felt at ease in his new home, ate his fill, and relaxed on his warm, soft covers. Matea gave him a plush animal to make him feel less alone, allowing him to slumber comfortably and catch up on lost sleep.
