Meredith and her siblings were found outside in the storm, drenched and in need of help. When they arrived in Foster the Furbabies’ care, they were only around 3 weeks old and were very unwell, suffering from upper respiratory infections, eye infections, and parasites.
Gianna Cirucci, co-founder of Foster the Furbabies, told The Dodo, “Meredith was the runt of the litter, and we weren’t sure if she or her siblings were going to make it.” “Fortunately, they all survived while in our care, but Meredith had a difficult time.”
Meredith battled with vision problems for a long time, even after her siblings had recovered. She was finally confirmed for adoption after a series of illnesses and several medical appointments, however the vet warned that she could have some little visual impairment in the future. Even though they knew they’d have to say goodbye, her rescuers were happy to see her recovered completely.
Cirucci stated, “She was one of the very first cats we had saved since we started our rescue, and she’ll always be one of our favorites.”
Meredith’s rescuers wanted to do something special for her before she headed to her permanent home, so they decided to take her to Starbucks for a Starbucks Puppuccino. Meredith has always been a little fascinated with food, so they figured she’d enjoy the gift.
“When it comes to eating, she was (and still is) completely insane,” Cirucci added. “She would eat whatever she could get her hands on. If she caught a whiff of whatever I was eating, she would crawl up my body and try to eat it out of my mouth or land face first on my plate. This female, despite being the runt of the litter, had a huge appetite.”
Meredith’s rescuers gave her with her treat after driving through the drive-through and buying a Puppuccino for her — and she immediately went crazy for it.
Cirucci stated, “She automatically plunged head first into the cup, and we started recording her since it was a moment we didn’t want to forget.” “She had us in tears and I was gasping because she had us laughing so hard.”
Meredith was giddy with anticipation for her reward and couldn’t seem to get enough of it. Even the barista in the drive-through window couldn’t stop laughing and taking photographs of the funny, dirty kitty since the whipped cream was all over her.
“We cleaned her up right after since more of the pup cup got on her face than in her mouth, but she clearly had a nice time and appreciated her treat,” Cirucci said. “She kept trying to bring the cup back to her face and was so sad when we wouldn’t let her have any more.”
They decided to share the cute video of Meredith and her treat on the internet, and it went viral. Some people were concerned about feeding dairy to a cat, but Meredith’s rescuers conducted their homework and discovered that kittens may eat it on occasion. There’s no need to be concerned because most of the whipped cream ended up on Meredith’s fur anyhow.
