A few months ago, Matea was returning home from work. Suddenly she came across a stray kitten wandering alone near a busy intersection.
«I was cycling along my usual route. Approaching the intersection, I noticed a small lump of lint and realized that it was a small kitten. He was exhausted,» Matea said.
She got off the bike and walked over to the kitten. A dirty
little kitten, seeing a woman approaching him, came up toher as if he was ready to be picked up.
Matea carefully placed the kitten in her backpack so that she could transport it safely. The cat looked like skin and bones. But he was so happy that he slept all the way home.
«He was sleeping on my dress, which was in my backpack. He was in very bad shape. But I think he finally realized that he could relax and sleep. »
Matea took the kitten to the vet. The veterinarian found out that he was underweight and half as much as he should be.
«He had these cute big ears that immediately reminded me of Gizmo from Gremlins. That’s how he got his name,» Matea shared.
Gizmo felt great in his new family. He ate what he liked and rested on his own blankets and on a teddy bear.
«After careful treatment, Gizmo gradually recovered. Now he is the most energetic kitten who follows me all day,» Matea said.
He met his new feline sister Sarah. An orange tabby cat that is 10 years older than him.
Gizmo loves his family.
«He greets me every morning when I wake up. And every day when I come home from work, he lies on his back so I can rub his furry belly,» Matea said.
