It’s exciting to read of advancements in the healing of animals that have been through a traumatic event in their lives.
Phoenix, a little cat, got a new home after recovering from severe burns sustained in a yard fire at her previous home in Cleadon, South Tyneside.
Phoenix had only been alive for a few weeks when she was buried beneath the wreckage of a shed that had caught fire in June.
The injuries sustained by this cat were severe. His fur was nearly charred, and he had burns on his eyes, legs, and flesh. Her life had been a living horror for her.
Fortunately, this tiny kitten found a new home on Christmas Eve. Luka Atkinson took her in as a permanent adoption and cared for her day by day till she fully recovered.
Phoenix’s progressive recuperation was noticed by Luka, who works at the RSPCA Felledge Animal Center. Initially, she was only under her care for a short time, but the emotional tie that developed between them became stronger with each passing day.
“I was only temporarily caring for Phoenix, but I became so connected to her that she will now live with me indefinitely.” She wanted so much care and attention while she recovered that she remained at my side 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
Luka expressed her delight at having her with her for the rest of her life, and the most important thing is that Phoenix is delighted.
Luka changed Phoenix’s bandages for at least an hour every day. Not to mention the medical attention he required for his eyes owing to the horrific damage he had sustained.
The inner eyelids had been fully exposed, necessitating the use of eye drops on a regular basis.
“Those were tumultuous times. To tell you the truth, I wasn’t sure if we were doing the right thing by keeping her alive.”
She was severely scorched, and she appeared to have been shaven. Her transformation has been spectacular, and she is in fantastic health after 9 months after growing fully bald and having the bases of her legs scorched.
Love and commitment were crucial in the development of this cat, who endured excruciating suffering but never gave up hope.
Phoenix’s miraculous recovery astounded everyone, and now he’s just like any other cat. He has a wonderful personality and is quite active. She is a happy and fun person.
