Husky Discovers A Zipped Cooler With A Cat Inside And Sᴀᴠᴇs Her Life
It was just before dawn in late June when adorable pup, Koda, was out for her morning walk with her owner. And as the duo walked past the local Fᴇᴀʀʟᴇss Kitty Ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ animal shelter, Koda stopped in her tracks. Something had caught her attention and the scent was about to lead them to a very important discovery.
Her mom tried to convince Koda to return to their walk, but the persistent pup refused to tear her snout away from the bag. Deciding Koda had found something that couldn’t be left, the dog mom opened the bag and the red cooler inside and discovered a black cat ᴛʀᴀᴘᴘᴇᴅ ɪɴ the cooler within the bag. Though not yet 6 a.m., the air outside was already on its way to roasting as recent days had seen temperatures reaching over 100 degrees. Inside the bag and cooler, the temperature was rising fast, putting ᴛʜᴇ ᴘᴏᴏʀ cat in ᴅᴇᴇᴘ ᴘᴇʀɪʟ. Fortunately, the darling kitty was still alive thanks to Koda’s insistent discovery! Teryn called one of the shelter staff, and they took the cat in.
“She was just sʜᴀᴋᴇɴ ᴜᴘ and was kind of in freeze-mode,” she said. “And that’s how she’s been since.”
The tiny black kitten got a name -Juliane, and she is slowly getting used to her new life at the ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ.
“She’s so sweet and very ɴᴇʀᴠᴏᴜs and sʜʏ,” Teryn said. “But she loves being pet — she ᴘᴜʀʀs and rolls around on her belly. The resilience of her, in going through what she went through, is really ᴀᴍᴀᴢɪɴɢ.”
“In the Danish culture, the name Juliane means ‘Fᴇᴀʀʟᴇss,’” Fᴇᴀʀʟᴇss Kitty Ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ wrote on their Facebook page. “And Fᴇᴀʀʟᴇss she is!”
But Juliane hasn’t fully ʀᴇᴄᴏᴠᴇʀᴇᴅ yet. Vets found a large mass on her tail, and it will require sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ. Once she ʀᴇᴄᴏᴠᴇʀs and feels better, she will be ready to start her search for her new home.“She’s very sweet and very clean — so she’s your ideal cat,” Jones said. “She sits and does her own thing, she doesn’t make a mess … She’s just very dainty.”
Thanks to Koda, the tiny kitty has a chance at a happy life.
We expect her to fully recover and become adoptable within the next week or two!
So now, Juliane’s next adventure is about to begin.
She will be ready for adoption any day now and the ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ is hoping to find her PURRfect family right away! With everything that Juliane has experienced, they know that a caring home that will allow her to adjust at her pace will be best.
Thank you so much to Koda and family and everyone who helped Juliane get to where she is today. Her life will be so much “cooler” now. See what I did there? Make is a pawsitive!
