An outdoor food park located in San Antonio, Texas has a very unlikely resident. A peculiar-looking feline has made himself quite comfortable among the locals that frequent the park/bar area, saying “hello” and asking for a snack here and there. One Reddit user decided to go ahead and share the cute kitty online and was surprised to find out how many people he’d made friends with.
The kitty truly has a special pair of eyes and those that know him in person agreed he needed a little TLC. “After some discussion, it came out that he had an injury on his tail, and several concerned Redditors suggested getting this little guy to a vet for a checkup and neuter surgery,” Reddit user iamkmi noted.
User iamkmi offered to take the cat, who’s lovingly called Alfred by the staff at the outdoor food park, to the veterinarian for a check-up on his tail, a neuter, and some vaccines. When Alfred’s fans all came together, they collected $255 to take care of everything.
On a Thursday afternoon, iamkmi went over to pick Alfred up. “He was a little startled at first, but came over pretty quickly after I called to him,” said iamkmi. He gave Alfred a few pets and then offered some delicious canned food, which was promptly eaten. iamkmi kept moving the can further and further, right into a nice, soft carrier and was able to zip Alfred inside.
Despite being quite nervous, Love Meow reported that he did a great job during the car ride. When iamkmi arrived at the veterinarian’s office, he had somehow forgotten the name that the food park staff had given Alfred, so he offered the name Creampuff. Both names are quite suitable, we think!
Creampuff, or Alfred, spent the entire night at the animal hospital to prepare for his neuter the next day. He recovered very nicely from his neuter and received a rabies vaccine, then went on his way home to the food park. This adorable little cat certainly has a great and powerful fan base, and he’s happier and healthier than ever!
