Abandoned Cat Won’t Stop Kissing His New Mom On Her Nose

As animal lovers, we hate ignorant and irresponsible owners who abandon their pets and leave them to fend for themselves on the streets. Luckily, there are still many kind people out there who are willing to save them and give them a second chance in life.

On a sunny afternoon last month, a kind-hearted woman found a cat hiding under her son’s car in a parking lot. The cat was hiding from 100-degree heat and was cooling himself off by lying on a concrete pavement that was covered by the car.

The woman immediately got in touch with Cats of San Bernardino, a non-profit organization based in San Bernardino, California, to help the poor animal.

The rescuers then rushed to the parking lot and checked the cat’s situation. Luckily for them, the cat was not feral, so they easily touched him and picked him up.

“He was just like “Please, someone take me,” Jaina, from Cats of San Bernardino, told The Dodo. “He just allowed to be picked up and he wasn’t moving.”

The rescuers gently coaxed the poor cat into the carrier and took him to the vet to be examined. At first, they thought that the cat was a female but then they discovered that he was a male.

“We thought the cat was a female cause he was so malnourished and he’d already been neutered.”

Everyone deduced that his previous owners moved away and abandoned him. They left him outside and he was left to fend for himself. That’s the reason why he was so skinny with a lot of matted fur and bald patches.

He had a bald patch on his forehead that extended to one eye. The vets also found a swollen part that made one of his eyes only half-opened.

“We had the abscess on his forehead looked at. We started him on some antibiotics.”

Jaina and Ivy, who were also volunteers of the CSB organization, named the cat Valentino and helped him heal.

“He just wanted to give everyone an update and let everyone know he is doing good. He is responding well to the antibiotics. Inflammations is basically completely gone. He’s gaining weight and getting stronger. He’s got new hair growing back.”

They were just surprised by the cat’s transformation after a few weeks. As soon as he started to heal, he started to form a strong bond with his rescuers.

“His personality changed to this, “I love you, guys! Every time we’ll pick him up, he will start rubbing his face on our face and really saying thank you. And then, he likes to give kisses too so he will kiss my nose. He is a lover,” Jaina said.

Valentino shows his new mom how grateful he is by snuggling up with her every chance he gets.

“Obviously, we are busy so we have a lot of other kitties to care for. So Valentino’s gonna be looking for a home. It’s gonna have to be, obviously the perfect home for him. Someone that’s home a lot, spends a lot of time with him, will be able to hold him a lot of the time. He will love to be with someone where he gets 100% of the attention.”
