She was then transferred to a hospital where a bath was high on the priority list as she was covered in grease and a heavy infestation of fleas. Now she is doing fine, apart from getting over the shock she is still a little scared of the unfamiliar surroundings. But medically she is doing very well.
“When she brought it in, it was covered with fleas and grease from the truck,” Lori Banchi, a volunteer said. “So we gave it a bath, then the doctor did an exam, de-wormed it, gave it medicine for fleas. It’s doing well. Aside from being scared, medically, it’s fine.”
Banchi took Miracle home Tuesday night for some extra loving care.”She didn’t want to eat the first day, that’s part of being scared, but she ate for me this morning,” Banchi said Wednesday.
Miracle also took comfort in a “Snuggle Mama” stuffed cat with an artificial heartbeat.” As soon as I gave her that, she dove right under it,” Banchi said. “It was cute.”
Miracle likely will be medically cleared for adoption in a few weeks. Meanwhile, the shelter is asking for donations of cat food to feed Miracle and other cats in its care. For information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
