A malnourished and cross-eyed cat was rescued from a wild gang and warmly accepted into a family home after being coaxed back to health.
Bubbles was a complete and total wreck when she arrived at Tabby’s Place, a cat shelter and rescue in Ringoes, New Jersey.
As a result, it seemed improbable that anyone could ever sincerely love such an outcast cat.
The three-year-old cat, on the other hand, had good reason to be so defensive. She was unquestionably the underdog in her feral cat colony. When good Samaritans dropped down food for the colony, the other cats picked on her and wouldn’t let her eat.
Bubbles could have been a little disoriented due to anomalies in her vision, causing her to lash out.
Bubbles gradually adjusted to her new life at the refuge, although she still refused to let anyone touch her at first.
Bubbles befriended a cat named Reggie, but when Reggie was adopted, Bubbles was left alone once more.
According to Covello, she was clearly miserable, so the kind-hearted volunteer, who sensed something special in the cross-eyed cat, concluded that Bubbles may benefit from a change of scenery.
Despite the fact that Covello had never managed to even touch her, she opted to take her home for the time being.
Covello continued, “I thought she had the potential to be an adoptive cat. As a result, we were approved to foster her.”
Bubbles was brought home by Covello and kept in a different room from the other cats in the house while she adjusted.
“I was scared we wouldn’t see her again,” Covello said.
The Covello family, on the other hand, pitched in to make Bubbles feel at ease.
“We spent a lot of time talking to her and sitting in the room with her.”
Bubbles was soon apparent that she wasn’t going away, and the Covello family has formally and lovingly adopted her.
“Once she arrived here, she never left. It’s been such a pleasure to witness her come out of her shell,” Covello says.
