When Rachel Brown saw Jon Snow the cat in a shelter listing online, she had a feeling that feline was a fighter and decided to give him a chance so she went straight to the shelter to visit him. When there, even the shelter owner told her the cat was too sick and treatment for him would be quite expensive. “That basically solidified my decision and I told him I would be there the next day to pick him up,” she expressed.
After Rachel picked up Jon, she rushed him to a 24-hour vet clinic and they hospitalized the cutie since his condition was critical. “They cut off some of his matted fur and cleaned his face with a fine tooth comb. He weighed 1.5 kg (3.3 lbs), and they said he was 1-2 years old. He had ulcers in his mouth and inflammation throughout his body.”
But Jon had quite the fight in him and after 5 days of intense treatment, Rachel was able to bring him home, surprising the vets at how fast this cutie recovered! He’s since come a long way and Rachel couldn’t be happier to have him in her life.
