In October of 2022 we received a report of a severely injured black kitty from a lady who had set up a feeding station for stray cats in her area. Our trapper went out and searched for him for a week but couldn't find him. Because of the severity of his injuries it was believed he must have curled up somewhere and died.

But three months later another report from a different lady came in about the same cat. She said something was hanging from his neck. Once our trapper found him she discovered it was his own rotting flesh hanging from his body. He was still alive but he smelled like he was dying. Our trapper secured him and immediately took him to the vet. We named him Malam, which means "night" in Indonesian.

She noticed that this black kitty had been with a white cat all day. She went back out to bring him in and after more than a week, she was finally successful. It was -13C that night and her feet were burning from the cold. She joked that her mom would have scolded her for staying out so long. "But mom, I saved a cat!" Her mom would have been proud. We named him Fajar, which means "dawn" in Indonesian.

From that moment on our trapper became their medical foster. She has spent time picking fleas off of them, taking them to and from the vet and dentist, washing their faces, and getting them familiar with her hands and the sound of her voice. They are becoming more comfortable around people and now that they are recovering from the brutal life "the streets" have to offer, their personalities are starting to come through.

Stay tuned for more updates on these beautiful boys.
