One Tough Feline Who Has Overcome So Much

Bumblebee is a sweet cuddly cat who has endured extreme pain and abuse. His soft purrs hide his painful past.

West Coast Dog and Cat Rescue received a young cat who had serious head injuries. Upon investigation, they discovered the fragile kitten, just one year old, had been thrown against the side of a building. The forceful blow to the head made him cross-eyed.

The staff was concerned and brought him immediately to a vet. It was recommended that he get an MRI after such trauma to the head. The vets also found he had a neurological disorder that caused him to have seizures. The rescue organization runs on donations from the public, and a high-cost procedure is not within the limited budget. However, the rescue was not going to give up on Bumblebee.

GreaterGood’s Friend Program stepped up and covered the cost for the MRI and recovery. After the MRI, Bumblebee received all the required medical treatment so he could begin recovering. His seizures are stabilized on regular phenobarbital each day.

The best place for him to recover was in a loving foster home. His foster mom was happy to take him in and help him thrive. She became so attached to his furry face and loving purrs that she decided to adopt him. He will spend the rest of his days enjoying unlimited love!
