Jada Hamby is the boss of the lighting and decoration store Home & Light Valdosta located in the state of Georgia to United States.
In March 2021, the young woman and her employees discovered a bench alley cat prowling the back of the store. Obviously he was blind and deaf. Besides, he did not allow himself to be approached.
Jada, sensitive to the animal cause, then contacted a feline refuge in the region. Which moved to recover the tomcat and put it in a safe place.
“The rescuers came several times and tried different methods to capture him, to no avail. He was way too smart and foiled all their plans.”said Jana at The Dodo.
In search of an ideal solution for the well-being of the feline
Dumpster, his nickname, was obviously very comfortable in his environment. Despite his severe handicaps, he moved with ease.
The members of the shelter then explained to Jana that a feline in its condition would live very badly to be moved. Moreover, he was so wild that they feared that it would be impossible to socialize him one day.
It was therefore agreed that the efforts to capture him would continue, but for the sole purpose of sterilizing him, identifying him and vaccinating him so that he can enjoy a life without health concerns.
After some time, Dumpster was taken to the veterinary clinic and received the care mentioned. He was then returned to his habitat where he feels so good.
Since then, the tomcat has been taking advantage of the food made available to it daily by Jana and his team.
“He loves basking in the sun above our boxes and sheltering from the rain. He greets us every morning by meowing and demanding his breakfast! He is a very talkative cat and he enjoys conversing with us”explained the young woman before adding that recently, he is happy to let himself be stroked on the head.
