Matea was riding his bicycle home after work when he came upon a cat wandering alone near a busy main boulevard, and the woman felt she had to save him.
“I was cycling along my normal path. I observed a little ball of fluff as I reached the junction and realized it was a young kitten that was clearly starved.
The mother dismounted and approached the cat, intending to take it into her care, while the small one stood by and observed.
Matea was approached by a kitten who appeared to be ready to be taken up and receive the care he had been waiting for. Matea then placed the kitten in his bag so that he could transfer him safely; the kitten was only skin and bones at the time.
He was, however, overjoyed and glad to get assistance, to the point that he opted to unwind and take a lengthy nap throughout the journey.
Matea had this to say:
«I slept with my dress tucked into the back of my backpack. He was in terrible shape the first day, but I believe he finally realized he could unwind and sleep.
The mother took the tabby cat to the vet, who informed her that she was underweight and just half the size she should be. But he was determined to survive and battle against hardship, so they felt if he was given proper care, he would be successful.
The kitten’s looks was adorable, and his large ears reminded him of Gizmo, a well-known character from the film ‘Gremlins,’ which is how he acquired his name.
Perhaps providence placed the kitten in Matea’s path, since he left work later that day and was therefore able to locate him.
Gizmo made himself at home when he arrived at his new home, eating to his heart’s content and lazing on his comfy, toasty blankets. Matea gave him a teddy animal so he wouldn’t feel so alone, and he was able to sleep well and catch up on missing sleep.
Gizmo rapidly improved after rigorous veterinary treatment and began to demonstrate that he was a kitten with a lot of activity. Gizmo progressed successfully during the next several weeks, not only recovering his health and weight but also demonstrating his intelligence.
“Every morning when I wake up and every afternoon when I return home from work, he greets me.”
Little Gizmo has gone a long way since he was rescued, but the greatest part is that he has matured into a stunning young cat.
Gizmo was given a second shot at life because to Matea’s generous heart, and he is now content in his cozy VIP lifestyle.
