Look: This Rescued Ginger Cat has 13 Pomeranian Siblings and He Thinks He’s a Dog

Truly, love can heal all wounds–even the deep one on Ginger’s neck. Three months ago, someone probably tried to strangle him or tied a sharp object around his neck, shares Liza Fielder, the woman who rescued him and has been cherishing him since she found him one morning in her staff house hungry and looking pitiful.

That day I decided to rescue him and I fed him tuna with rice,” she says. After feeding him, she brought him to the vet.

For over a month, he stayed in her staff house to recuperate. As soon as he is completely fit and upon completing his vaccine shots, Liza brought him home and introduced him to her 13 pomeranian dogs.

They looked pretty excited to meet the new family member.

The getting-to-know-each-other phase involved lots of sniffing and nudging.

Watch: Ginger is now part of the family. Liza puts him on a leash when she takes him outside to make sure he will be safe.

According to Liza, Ginger is a very good boy. He goes to the comfort room to pee and poop. “He cries whenever I leave the house and he makes a noise whenever I arrive home–just like a dog.”

What a happy and inspiring story! We’re so glad that Ginger fought to stay alive and find a way to safety. We all could learn from his fighting spirit. If we don’t give up, sooner or later we shall achieve our goal. For Ginger, it seems that goal is being part of a loving family.

Thanks, Liza, for rescuing and adopting him! Maybe we should rename this story to ‘Ginger and the 13 Poms.”
