When Tim was a tiny, three-month-old kitten, he moved into what he thought was going to be his forever home.
The sweet tabby loved and trusted his owner with his whole heart, and never suspected that in return, he’d get his heart shattered.
In a heartbreaking turn of events, Tim ended up being abandoned by his owner who surrendered him to New York City Animal Care and Control (ACC) with the explanation that the family had gotten a new couch.
Tim was absolutely crushed and immediately fell into a deep depression.
To make matters worse, Tim was put on the ACC’s euthanasia list, and he was dangerously close to losing not only his family but his life.
The same day Tim was scheduled to be euthanised, Magnificat stepped in and rescued him.
Magnificat is a rescue organization that is focused on rescuing and rehoming cats in need.
They found Tim a wonderful foster family, but poor Tim continued to suffer from a broken heart.
Tim’s depression ran so deep that he refused to eat. The sad and confused kitty just wanted to stay curled up in a little ball of grief and agonize over being rejected by his family.
His foster family had to resort to force-feeding him, and despite their best efforts, he kept losing weight.
Magnificat and Tim’s new fosters wanted nothing more than for Tim to find happiness and to regain his lust for life.
They gave him all the love and care they could, hoping that one day Tim would feel joy and love again, and slowly, happiness seemed to seep back into Tim’s life.
We are so happy that there are good people out there who are working tirelessly to help animal’s in need and who bring joy back into the lives of sweet little cats like Tim.
