Meet Mister Pickle, a friendly stray cat who was struck by a car.
Mister Pickle often stopped by a pet shop where worker Melissa Popham would feed him.
She began to feel concerned when after five days he hadn’t passed by, he eventually turned up and from the way he looked it was obvious something awful had happened to him.
The poor thing looked like something from a horror movie.
Melissa and her co-worker called the vet who realized that he must have been run over by a car and started treating the cat’s huge body abscess and a broken jaw.
Around 2 months and $6,000 later, a miraculous transformation happened.
Mister Pickle was now a fluffy kitty and very very happy.
Not only does he have a loving human, he also has a cat brother named Ted.
The two of them enjoy each other’s company and are often found sleeping together.
In fact, I think a lot of napping goes on in this household!
As you can see – Ted isn’t his only buddy!
Melissa says: “Pickle is absolutely a wonderful cat, pet and friend. He is loved so much and I am so pleased to share my life with him.”
She also says that he’s the best indoor kitty that she could have hoped for.
