It's a biblical name and quite fitting for this little black kitty found by a good Samaritan frozen to the ground with neck injuries, bitten by another animal. He was clinically dead. When the man rescued him...he was told to contact a board member from Pets Uniting People Society, Dottie.
Dottie became this kitty's foster and cared for him day-by-day, took him to the veterinarian and monitored his progress to everyone on facebook. As director of Pets Uniting People Society...seeing all that transpired...it is a definite miracle. I thought he'd be paralyzed. Miracles
do happen even these days, not just biblical times. When all on Dottie's facebook asked his named...she didn't have one yet. But it wasn't long until by unanimous decision all of her followers thought it should be Lazarus.
Here is a latest message from Dottie about Lazarus:
"I am thankful and appreciative for all the comments and praise throughout little Lazarus' recovery, but I had very little to do with it other than providing him a safe, warm place, nourishment, meds and
care. His will to survive as all animals are born with and deserve... and with God's power through prayer and Dr. Fent, he has come this far. I have no doubt now that he will make a full recovery. He is so alert this morning, was in a sitting position, ate his wet food, was grooming himself and left his little toy fish in his empty bowl for me. This brought tears of joy as most of the kittens and cats do this and I take it as a 'thank you' for my breakfast."
Even though Dottie takes little credit for the survival of this little kitty...she knows how to handle them and give them what they so desperately need, LOVE!
Follow Lazarus' progression on the Pets Uniting People Society facebook page. (Last I looked, he up and walking around just as normal as can be!)
Thanks, Dottie for taking in Lazarus so he could get better and now has an opportunity for adoption! (I hear someone's already interested in him for a forever home!) Yay!
Lazarus was adopted by Dottie and Dave's nephew in Memphis, TN.
