From the moment Marshmallow came into our care, we knew we had quite a character on our hands!
At just four months old, he was a tiny little thing who had clearly been attacked by a dog. His right hind leg was fractured and he was covered in bite marks — yet after giving him some pain relief, he gobbled up all his dinner with no problem and even asked for more!
“That sounds about right — he is obsessed with food and would eat all day if he could!” laughed his new adopter, Quynn.
She was initially fostering Marshmallow while he recovered from his surgery to correct his broken leg.
But after seeing him fit in so well with her dog Duke, and her cat Cracken, Quynn decided to make things permanent.
“He just settled in perfectly with his big fur brother and sister. I have a thousand videos of them together.”
While the vets gave Quynn strict instruction to keep Marshmallow confined to let his leg heal, the little cat had other ideas!
“His leg definitely hasn’t slowed him down. He was always full of beans, broken leg and all. But we got through the four weeks confinement and then he was able to play!”
Now that Marshmallow is all healed, he is loving life in his new home.
“His favourite spot to be is on top of the cat shelf I built looking out the window. He, of course, has his cheeky kitten moments but loves nothing more than a cuddle and spends most of his time purring.
“It has been great to see him enjoying life like nothing even happened.”
Without the generosity of donors, cats like Marshmallow would struggle to find the unconditional care and support you help us to provide every day.
