She came in as a stray. As they often do.
But Lady in a Fur Coat had other problems.
Chronic infections and hematomas to her ears, which required surgery.
“This sweet gal has been on quite the medical journey since coming to us stray in December,” the Dane County Humane Society in Madison, Wisconsin posted on Facebook. “Lady required her ear flaps to be removed.”
That left her without the look of ears and a home.
But Lady, as she’s called, continued to be an affectionate feline — with our without ears.
“That hasn’t kept her, though, from giving some happy head bumps to everyone she meets!” the shelter explained.
And, a humane society staffer turned to crafting to help.
“Ash Collins crocheted her a lovely ear bonnet to keep this lady looking stylish!” the facility added.
And even better, Lady now has a fur-ever home.
“Lady in a Fur Coat was just adopted!!!” the shelter announced.
“We were so excited to see this sweet gal get adopted so quickly and start living her best life in her new home,” the humane society explained. “Thank you to everyone who supports DCHS to provide care and comfort to nearly 9,000 animals a year, helping make so many happy endings like this possible!”
Call it a rags to riches story for the animal set.
