A foundling struggles for its life
On a hot day in July, a small, red and white coloured kitten was handed in at the cash desk at Gut Aiderbichl Deggendorf. The young animal had been noticed between the parked cars.
Had it fallen from the sky? Had the mother cat left it between the cars? It seemed that the eight-week-old Chilli had been abandoned. His state of health was alarmingly bad.
Little Chilli needed extra care
Little Chilli's health was worrying. He had ear mites, a sore genital area, fever, dehydrated and emaciated. Unfortunately, our animal keepers are no strangers to such situations, but it is always very upsetting when animals, especially young ones, are handed over in such a bad condition.
Chilli got well again
Immediately after the admission, the health check by the vet began. He instructed the caregivers which medicines should help Chilli to regain his health.
In the cat villa, a warm cat bed, warm blankets, peace and quiet and lots of love from the animal keepers awaited him in a cosy room.
Chilli was greedily happy about the food that was carefully fed to him, about the belly massage and the cuddling in the caretakers' arms.
Every day, the state of health improved noticeably
In the end, everything turned out to be fine and Chilli has become a grateful, happy cat. The foundling has now found a big family in our cat villa in Deggendorf. He liked to lie with his fellow cats in front of the door, on the window sills or in the grass under the bushes in summer and started to enjoy his young cat life.
The Deggendorf cats actually live in a house with a beautiful, cat-friendly garden. Visitors can spend time in the garden with the cats and also linger there. You can't look that quickly as the Schnurre cats sneak around your legs and pick up lots of petting.
The moral of the story - abandoning animals is not an option for any living creature
Do morals also exist in animals or do morals only apply to humans? Both are living beings with hearts, feelings and a desire for respect.
The cat is one of people's favourite pets. If you take animals into your home, you should also feel obliged for these creatures and their welfare.
Every particle on earth has a right to live: the waters and the life in them, the plants, the people and the animals. We are all One. Rethinking is a long process, but it must not stop.
