He Lay On The Riverbank, Exhausted! Having Somehow, Paralyzed, Dragged Himself Through The City Streets,!

Paralyzed and exhausted he was found on the banks of a river after dragging himself alone through the streets.

One Facebook one day Kiriticka Khadka, a volunteer with For Animals Inc saw a video of a cat that broke her heart, so much so, that she desperately felt she needed to help him.

Back in 2017, Sylvester was found exhausted on the banks of a river near Kathmandu, Nepal. Covered in wounds and scratches he had dragged himself along the city streets.

Originally from Nepal herself, Kritika knew Sylvester was going to have a very tough time finding a home due to his paralysis.

“I grew up learning that cats are not usually kept as pets and black cats represent bad luck,” explains Kritika. “While this is not true, many people still have this belief back home.”

Because of his color and the condition he was now in, Kritica knew his best chance of finding a home would only happen if he was transported to the US or Canada.
