A small act of kindness could mean a lot more than you think. Granpruno, a cat, was forever changed as a result of it.
A couple in Montreal started throwing food out for stray cats in their neighborhood last summer. It didn’t take long for them to come across a grumpy-looking tabby who appeared to be particularly hungry.
He was given the name “Granpruno” because he resembled Pruno, one of their kittens.
Granpruno visited the couple’s yard on a daily basis, but they assumed he had a home and a family because he was so friendly and social.
Granpruno was yearning for attention and was glad to receive it, according to Chatons Orphelins Montréal, a Montreal-based animal rescue, who posted on Facebook that he arrived as soon as they summoned him.
According to the shelter, he was pleasant and outgoing, with lovely hair and a normal appearance.
When Granpruno failed to show up one day, the couple was anxious. They thought he was safe and happy with his family, but in case he returned, they left food out and kept a watch on their yard.
A few weeks later, they were clearing up the trash when they discovered Granpruno in their bin. They were astounded at how much the lovely kitty had changed.
Chatons Orphelins Montréal shared, “He was skin and bones and he didn’t seem well at all.” “When he approached them, they immediately hugged him. Without saying anything, he let himself go.”
The couple, who work as volunteers for Chatons Orphelins Montréal, noticed that he needed emergency veterinary treatment and took him to the rescue for help.
Granpruno suffered from hyperthyroidism, which made eating difficult for him.
However, as the 9-year-old cat started taking medication, he was back to his old, happy self.
On Facebook, Chatons Orphelins Montréal stated, “He’s the best of the crop and he gets along nicely with the other cats in the house.” “He enjoys talking or cuddling and still enjoys having fun.”
If you give him feathers or play games with catnip, he transforms into a cat who enjoys rolling over on his back and rubbing himself. He chases feathers and has as much fun as a baby.”
Granpruno’s foster parents fell in love with the friendly cat right immediately and decided to give him his forever home, despite Chatons Orphelins Montréal’s concerns that finding a home for an ill senior cat would be difficult.
Granpruno is now safe and secure, surrounded by a loving family.
Chatons Orphelins Montréal remarked, “He constantly wants to be near to his humans.” “He follows them around the house to see what they’re up to.”
