This is a miracle story of a cat who was at the end of her rope when she was found. A man rescued her and her life began to turn around.
In rural Maine, a man spotted a tiny, emaciated tortie cat in a ditch, fighting to survive. She was covered in filth, underweight and her long hair was completely matted. He immediately picked up the cat and called a friend for help.
They contacted Forgotten Felines of Maine, a volunteer cat rescue group that works to rescue cats across eastern Maine. She was then on her way to the vet to receive medical treatment that she urgently needed. They named her Freida.
Freida was in poor health. “She… weighed less than albs. She did not walk to that ditch by herself. Thank God for the man [who found her] taking a walk that day. He saved her life,” Forgotten Felines of Maine said.
Her fur was tangled, causing a lot of pain, so they shaved most of her coat and gave her little jumpers to wear to keep her warm and protect her sensitive skin.
They got help from numerous specialists and gave Freida biopsies, hoping to get her back on her paws. Though Freida is fully grown, she is the size of a tiny kitten.
“She has Multifocal portal venule hypoplasia and arteriolar hyperplasia (reduplication); mild bile ductular hyperplasia. In essence her liver doesn’t work. Her gall bladder is hundreds of times larger than it should be. Freida needs much more vet care and treatment and we really need your continued support. If you think Freida should have a chance live please help us help her.”
Despite what happened to Freida and her illnesses, she is in good spirits. Her appetite has returned and she enjoys the company of her human friends. One thing is for sure, this little feline wants to live and she will continue fighting for her life along with people who love her.

After the rescue, they shaved her severely tangled fur and gave her treatment that she urgently needed.
She started eating again! Though she needs continuous medical help, she is in good spirits.
They put her in a little sweater to keep her warm and protect her sensitive skin.
Though fully grown, she’s the size of a tiny kitten.
Sweet little Freida
