A cat with a bobtail was ready to settle down indoors. He chose a guy who didn’t know he needed a cat.
A dilute orange cat named Archie had lived as a scrappy tomcat for most of his life. After many years braving the streets and fending for himself, he was finally ready to settle down.
With the help of animal rescuers, he came around and embarked on a new chapter. took him into their care with open arms. He was all cleaned up and received proper medical attention.
“There’s just nothing better than a tough tomcat with a wild past who’s ready to settle down and be a spoiled house kitty,” Exploits Valley SPCA shared.
What was upsetting, though, were the pair of long brown legs and pleading black eyes barely visible under the debris. This little dog was trapped, and he needed help.
With caution, the team began to cut the dog loose from the plastic bag where he’d been tied up. After freeing the pup, they carried him out of the trash and gently placed him in the grass nearby.
The dog, later named Rocky, was so happy to be able to move around, though he was very weak from his ordeal. Neighborhood watch personnel gave the pup some ice cubes to suck on while they waited for SPCA Richards Bay staff to arrive.
Safe at the SPCA, a veterinary team examined Rocky and treated him for a small wound on his head.
SPCA staff were inspired by Rocky — who spread so much love and who didn’t seem jaded by his harrowing ordeal.
Rocky has since been adopted into a loving family and taken to live with them on their farm. The grateful pup, who once spent hours trapped under garbage, unable to move, will spend the rest of his days running through the ample fields of his new home, loving every minute.
