January 18, 2019

Carmen Weinberg, founder of Animal Friends Project Inc., shared an incredible story about a cat named Cotton.

Cotton was brought to her on September 12th, 2016 in Royal Palm Beach, FL.

The man said the cat came out of nowhere and started eating from a bowl of food he was trying to give to his cat.

He said Cotton was very hungry. He was able to put him in a cat carrier and posted for help.

"I went to pick Cotton up on Sept. 13 and took him directly to he vet," said Weinberg. "Cotton had a severe case of mange and was very dehydrated, anemic and very skinny."

She discovered Cotton was very friendly, too.

 

"He started purring when the vet examined him," she said.

Cotton got Ivermectin, fluids, an antibiotic and ointment for his eyes and Weinberg fed him small meals, various times a day.

Fortunately, she had a bathroom to quarantine Cotton.

The day that he was finally able to open his eyes again was a truly beautiful moment.

"We thought he was blind, and that he would be blind forever," Weinberg recalled.

"The vet thought that even when his eyes recovered they might be damaged, but they weren't. It was such a wonderful surprise. His eyes were just beautiful"

Weinberg generally puts the cats she rescues up for adoption, but she just couldn't give up Cotton.

So she adopted him.

"We got so many applications for him due to his looks, but in the end, I saw how attached to me he had become," she said. "I didn't have the heart to put him through another big change. He had already been through so much."
