Fergus is a wonderful brown and white cat who had a significant spinal injury and was treated at Oaks Veterinary Urgent Care in Agoura Hills, California. Now, when the other cats go to the vet, the loving rescue cat goes out of his way to make them feel better.
A veterinarian at the clinic, Dr. Rachel Wallach, said:
“From the center of his back down, he was paralyzed.”
A rescued kitten aids the recovery of other kittens.
Dr. Rachel continued, ”
“Fergus, or Ferg as we call him, still retained feeling in his hind legs and tail after I did some preliminary work. He couldn’t utilize or move them, but he could feel them when I struck them, which meant he could walk and go to the bathroom on his own again.”
His recuperation would be difficult and slow, but the veterinarian put his faith in the small cat.
Rachel expressed herself as follows:
“Ferg is a Scottish Fold, thus he needs a Scottish name.” I called him Fergus, which means Man of Strength when I went to veterinary school in Scotland.”
At the vet, they focused on treating the urinary tract infection, and each step forward for the cat brought joy to the clinic staff; Fergus was able to get back on his feet a few weeks later.
Rachel had this to say:
“I’d want to believe it was related to our care, but it wasn’t.” Fergus had been inspired by making a new kitty companion.
Salvador, the clinic cat, had been watching Fergus since he arrived, and it appeared like they were conversing; both cats began to meow.
“We positioned a stool in front of Fergus’ cage, and Salvador went up to greet him.” Ferg sprang to his feet very instantly. We were overjoyed!”
Fergus began to make new acquaintances once he felt healthy enough to explore the area. The clinic team noticed a really unusual talent in Fergus when they welcomed a group of orphaned ducklings and the cat quickly embraced them and provided them some warmth and compassion.
Dr. Rachel continued, ”
“She encountered a dog that was suffering from heat exhaustion and offered him a day with us.”
Fergus is a great helper for the animals who come to the veterinarian’s office.
“She enjoys grooming our newest animals and ensuring their well-being. I got a call the night before my birthday from an old coworker about ten kittens that needed a safe place to land.”
One of those young kittens was in horrible shape, and when his siblings were adopted, the little cat was left in the loving care of Fergus.
Skywalker, a little kitten, was discovered abandoned on the side of the road. The tiny kid was practically lifeless when he came.
“His time on the streets had finally caught up with him. Even with the extra care, the kitten didn’t seem to flourish. We decided to try a foster parent once the fleas had gone away and he was no longer having gastrointestinal problems.”
Fergus took care of tiny Skywalker, and the kitten began to respond; he was fed, and he gradually gained strength and progressed; Fergus did not desert him, and he stayed with him until he was a teenager.
Oliver, a small kitten who had his tail damaged and had to be amputated, came recently. The little guy was quite courageous and meowed loudly the morning after his treatment.
Everyone at the clinic knew who would be assisting him in his recuperation. The small cat curled up in Fergus’ arms as they took him to him, and the two of them enjoyed a lengthy slumber together.
When Fergus sees a new animal arriving at the clinic, he approaches them and attempts to console them; the adorable cat is only trying to repay the kindness shown to him upon his entrance.
