Expressing your gratitude towards others is one of the biggest gifts you can give to them. There are a lot of ways to express gratitude, and the most important thing is you have to pick the right ways so that you can adapt to different situations. However, there are some people, even animals who don’t follow any common ways because they have great and strange ways to say “thank you” and show their love. And Snowball the cat in this post is one of those people.
Snowball used to be a happy cat in his home until his owners had to move into a new place. They couldn’t take him with them, so they had surrendered him to A Mini Rescue. He was taken in a new home by kind fosters, but he wasn’t quite sure what to make of them. His foster family realized that the poor cat was so confused about why his family left him behind with these strangers.
They gave him love and care and tried to make him as comfortable as possible. Sadly, only two days after he arrived in his foster home, the distraught cat opened up a window and escaped from the house.
“We searched everywhere, contacted local authorities and groups but without success,” Ryoko Komine, Snowball’s foster mom, told The Dodo. “Snowball was gone.”
Snowball’s foster family was heartbroken and couldn’t believe what had just happened. After searching in vain, the family started to think that their sweet cat wouldn’t come home.
Thankfully, two whole months later, they found Snowball only half a mile away from their home. “Apparently, someone had heard a cat in distress but the cat had escaped from her and fallen into a drain,” Komine said. “The RSPCA were called and they got him out, scanned his microchip and then called us.”
He was incredibly sick and things didn’t look good, so his foster family took him to the vet immediately. Luckily, Snowball started to recover, and now, he is doing so much better.
His foster family officially adopted him into their family so that he’d never have to change homes again. “He’s finally getting used to us and our other animals, and he’s so sweet,” Komine said. “He always follows us around and loves to sit by the window in my home salon when my clients are there.”
He’s so grateful to his new family for their love and care on his long recovery journey, and he likes to remind them just how thankful he really is. For this reason, Snowball peed in the shape of a heart and decided to take the heart as a sweet sign.
“I noticed this heart-shaped pee and thought it’s his thank you letter,” Komine said.
Now, Snowball pees in the shape of a heart pretty frequently, and his family absolutely loves it. He just wants to show his family how grateful he is for everything they’ve done for him, and for saving his life.
What a sweet story! Please share this post with your friends and family members!
