A good Samaritan rescued a big ginger kitty named Clancy after having spent most of his life on the streets.
He was taken to a small local shelter where they noticed he had a few battle scars, and he tested positive for FIV (Feline immunodeficiency virus). Unfortunately the shelter had limited resources so they reached out to Cat Adoption Team (CAT) who agreed to take him into their care.
It didn't take long for Clancy to work his way into their hearts, he loves all the attention, and enjoys talking with people with his sweet little meow.
"His big cheeks and cute squeaky meow were very unique, but he also has a big heart, super sweet disposition, and tons of charm and personality," explained Heather from CAT.
They estimated Clancy to be between six and seven years old, treated him for a bladder infection and gave him some much-needed dental surgery as well as scheduling an operation to be neutered.
Clancy was feeling so much better after all this attention that he began to chirp and squeak. (Scroll down for video)
After posting a video of him on social media, many people reached out to offer their love, support, and encouragement for him.
"Some folks even donated in his honor,"Heather told Love Meow. "This helps cover the cost of things like getting him neutered, providing the dental care he needed, and supporting all the homeless cats and kittens who come to our shelter for care and adoption."
It didn't take long for Clancy to find his fur-ever home. A local resident, Sandy, became completely smitten with him and was happy to have him in her life.
"CAT has been taking in and finding homes for FIV-positive cats since we opened our doors 20 years ago," Heather told Love Meow. "We do our best to help these cats in our local area and home state as much as possible."
Clancy is so happy that he now has a forever home with a forever human that he can talk to every day with his cute meows.
