Home for Sancho during the winter
Sancho is another saved street hero.
His lucky charm is called Milena Dimitrova. She is our favorite foster caregiver but being one she cannot keep forever every animal she helps. Even giving all her love and care to the animals to the extent of keeping us absolutely calm when we give them to her, she has to part with Sancho. Read her story about how she found him:
“One night, going home after a late walk, Sarah rushed curiously to the shadows in front of our residential block. I heard whizzing from there, Sarah rushed out of the shadows and a kitty came, sat down and looked at us. Something made me come closer. It appeared very miserable and thin. His face was all covered with the secretion leaking down from one of his eyes. Yes, the kitten had an injured eye. I took him. No matter how unreasonable I thought it was in that moment. I couldn’t just pass by. You can guess what I did next. I arranged a place for him in my home, away from the dogs. After that – feeding, vet visit, antibiotic treatment for a week, deworming and ectoparasitic treatment, vitamins and rich food. It’s been three weeks since I took Slancho, for short Sancho, in my home. I made three attempts to release him back to the kittens from his family. The first time he wasn’t well enough and I took him back home. The second time the mother didn’t show up and there was a big male cat that attacked him. It wasn’t an ordinary cat playing and Sancho literally screamed of fear. The third time was a little better; he ignored me and rushed to the bushes to run and climb the trees, but after that he ran to me and literally climbed into my arms. Now, when I open the exit door he runs inwards the apartment – I think he just doesn’t want me to take him out.
Sancho is well now. His eye is not infected, but he won’t be able to see with it; it’s in the eye socket and the muscles move the two eyes at the same time, but it has decreased volume. Sancho is now a vital, ginger boy, with striped color and one – eyed. He is a bit of trouble 🙂 In the good way! He teases the dogs all the time. But they get along well. In my opinion he thinks he is a dog. They are so much fun when running in the room together, all three of them! He already recognizes the word NO and knows his name.”
Sancho needs to purr and light up the best home and that would be his own home… Help, let’s not allow this boy to be one of the thousand homeless souls!
