This 6-year-old alley cat was found strolling around a Montreal, Canada neighborhood. This cat, who has spent many years living on the streets, has no reason to be joyful or even grin; instead, his face is permanently scowled. Barney was his given name. He was in such awful form that it was evident he was in need of medical help even though he had managed to survive the severe winter on his own.
Many things were found to be wrong with Barney upon close examination. One of his ears was frozen and is now permanently folded. Barney is missing a few teeth and has many battle scars from probably fighting for survival in the wild. He was put on antibiotics at the clinic to help him feel better. Despite his bad condition, the big boy was sweet to everyone that came to help him. He meowed to the staff and volunteers when he saw them and never complained when he was getting treatment.
In comparison to the cat that was first brought in, Barney’s health has now improved, his eyes are mending properly, he is becoming stronger, and he has regained his grin. In fact, he is beaming with delight.
For Barney, we are overjoyed!
