When some people who were out feeding a stray cat colony noticed a sweet orange cat with an injured leg, their hearts immediately went out to him. They could see that he was in pain and didn’t want him to suffer anymore, and they truly thought that the best thing to do would be to bring him to the vet to be put down.
But, of course, veterinarian Dr. Matt McGlasson had other plans.
Dr. McGlasson told The Dodo, “My staff knows I have a soft spot for cats – we actually rеscuеd and treated four kittens during COVID when our kids were completing school from home.” “They requested that the customer sign over the cat to me.”
Dr. McGlasson recognized there was no need to put the cat down after inspecting him, so he opted to fix him first and then find him the right forever home.
With the help of his TikTok followers, Dr. McGlasson decided to name the sweet cat Nemo. Unfortunately, Nemo’s leg was injured beyond repair and had to be amputated, but luckily the surgery went well, and everyone was eager to help Nemo adjust to life as a three-legged cat. As Nemo healed, it was clear that he was so grateful to everyone for taking such good care of him.
Dr. McGlasson described him as “the sweetest cat you’d ever meet.” “[He] cares for everyone.”
Dr. McGlasson wasn’t sure he was in a position to adơрt Nemo because he already had cats at home, but one of the vet techs fell in love with him and became his permanent home.
“[He’s] doing amazing,” Dr. McGlasson said. “Enjoying being a house cat, and he gets around great on three legs.”
When Nemo first arrived at the vet practice, everyone knew he deserved a chance to live a happy life in a forever home, and that’s exactly what they gave him.
