A cat came back to the couple who were kind to him, and was ready to change his life.
Granpruno the catChatons Orphelins Montréal
Steph and Francis from Montreal, Canada spotted an older cat in their backyard one night, scrounging around for food.
He reminded them of one of their kittens named Pruno, so they lovingly named the tabby Granpruno. When they stepped outside to check on the cat, he came running to them.
“He was looking for snuggles and was happy to get some attention. He came up to the couple as soon as they called to him,” Celine Crom of Chatons Orphelins Montréal shared with Love Meow.
He was found in a backyard looking for food
Thinking that the cat might have a family, the couple decided to leave food and water outside while keeping an eye on the sweet tabby. Granpruno came back for a few days for food and pets, but didn’t return in the following weeks.
“They looked in the backyard every day for him. Then one evening, when they were taking out trash, they were surprised to find Granpruno rummaging in the garbage, and he didn’t look well.”
He walked up to the family for attention and pets
The cat had lost a lot of weight and was very fragile. He saw the couple and trudged towards them as if he was glad to be back with them. They scooped him up and brought him inside.
Granpruno was so hungry that he scarfed down all the food in one sitting. It soon became clear that he had been abandoned and that he needed immediate medical attention.
