The kitty who was saved during the fire that destroyed 200 homes in Philippi on June 23, has finally found a new family!
Tracey was found with serious burn wounds all over her body, cowering under a partially burnt mattress. Despite the extent of her burns, she was one of many pets who were fortunate enough to escape the terrible fire.
The lovable kitty spent all of her time with the Animal Welfare Society of SA in hospital, graduating from Critical Care to a normal in-patient. This was all thanks to her fighting spirit, the generosity of their donors as well as a remarkable team effort.
On Tuesday, July 27, Lawrence Nkotha, the Animal Welfare’s Care Centre Supervisor had the pleasure of delivering Tracey to her new owner, who welcomed them with open arms, ready to embrace this special girl who survived and thrived despite the odds.
“After a brief rather uneventful introduction to her new feline family Tracey’s new owner introduced her to her “posh” new living quarters that came fully fitted with brand new food and water bowls and limitless cuddles,” says the Animal Welfare Society of SA.
“The cherry on the cake was when Coco, Tracey’s new owner unexpectedly gifted us R2 000. This generous gift will be put into our rather aptly named “Pet Rehabilitation Kitty.”
