A Gospel Mission cat named Casador, still has nine lives, thanks to some quick intervention.
The feline belongs to a resident of the emergency shelter and stays in a kennel out back.
A few days ago, Casador’s owner noticed the cat was injured. With no money for a vet, the Gospel Mission called Dr. Oz at Rose Valley Veterinary Hospital, who didn't hesitate to help.
''Once there, he examined Casador, provided medication and is keeping him until he is fully healed, which will take about two weeks. At $200 for medication and $50 per day boarding, this donation was crucial to Casador’s health,'' said mission outreach worker JoAnne McKenzie.
''When I first met Casador’s owner, he had lost his job, housing, and was sleeping on the street behind a building. Because he suffers from depression, Casador is his lifeline,'' McKenzie added.
