This Cat Has Finally Found A Reason To Smile Again After Haven Lived On The Streets For Years

This 6-year old alley cat was found wandering in a neighborhood in Montreal, Canada. This cat has been living on the streets for many years and has lost every reason to be happy or even smile, his face was perpetually set in a frown. They named him Barney. He managed to survive the harsh winter on his own, it was very obvious that he was in dire need of medical attention as he was in a particularly bad shape.

Many things were found to be wrong with Barney upon close examination. One of his ears was frozen and is now permanently folded. Barney is missing a few teeth and has many battle scars from probably fighting for survival in the wild. He was put on antibiotics at the clinic to help him feel better. Despite his bad condition, the big boy was sweet to everyone that came to help him. He meowed to the staff and volunteers when he saw them and never complained when he was getting treatment.

Now, Barney’s condition has improved, his eyes are healing properly, he is getting stronger and he has his smile back, in fact, he is beaming with happiness which is such a huge contrast to the cat that was initially brought in.
We are very happy for Barney!
