I have shared many incredible stories of felines fighting off very difficult challenges to thrive. Whether it is because of animal abuse, like Lucky, or for an unknown reason, like Lincoln, or because they were born with challenges, like Anakin, it does not matter. I always enjoy sharing those stories.
Today I will share with you the story of Memow. This poor feline was the victim of a horrible fire in an RV. The fire completely destroyed the RV. Memow was scared, and ran out of the fire. When one of his humans tried to help him, he was so scared that he ran away.
Later, poor Memow was found being attacked by crows, and a kind human called a veterinary clinic. This is where Memow’s cat rescue begins. One of the humans in white coats rushed to the scene, and helped save Memow. The poor cat was unable to defend himself because of severe burns to his face, which caused his eyes to swell shut.
Memow was taken to Ballard Animal Hospital, and the humans in white coats realized that his cat rescue was going to be a challenging one. In addition to the burns on his face, Memow suffered severe burns to his tongue and paw pads.
Further complicating Memow’s cat rescue was the financial state of his humans, who had lost everything in the fire. They simply did not have enough green paper things to cover the very expensive and extensive treatment Memow’s cat rescue would require.
And that is where the wonderful feline loving humans across the internet came to help. One of the employees of the clinic turned to GoFundMe, looking for help. “He’s been through a traumatic experience but he’s docile and loving. We have all fallen for him,” wrote this human on Memow’s page.
Humans who also fell for Memow helped raise more than double the amount of money requested in two days.
Memow is still facing a long and challenging recovery, but his story is an inspirational one. From his will to live to the outpouring of love from humans, it makes me happy.
