An adorable cat with missing eyes was left inside a taped cardboard box in the shelter parking lot underneath the car of a volunteer. Thankfully, Megan Brunsting, shelter manager at Harbor Humane Society, quickly noticed that something was dumped underneath.
“Murdock was abandoned in a box with his bed under an employee’s car last night.”
Meet Murdock the blind homeless cat abandoned outside the shelter!
“He was shaking and obviously scared. I got him inside and realized that not only did he not have any eyes, but the place where his eyes belonged were infected with green discharge,” she posted on the organization’s Facebook page.
According to MLive, nobody knows how the cat lost both of his eyes, but they have already reported the incident to authorities at Ottawa County Animal Control (note: update regarding Murdock’s eyes is in video below). Their greater concern, however, is how the cat was dumped just outside the shelter, abandoned and in a box purposefully put under a car. A part of Harbor Humane Society’s mission is not only taking in homeless animals, but also working with people who need to surrender their pets.
“At this point, I obviously realized he was abandoned. I can only guess that someone saw my car covered in cat decals and thought I would get their cat taken care of, but failed to realize I could have easily ran him over and I’m lucky I somehow missed,” Megan shared.
Murdock is currently being cared for by a volunteer at their Mt. Olive facility. Shelter volunteers are hoping that they could find a loving family that is willing to take care of this adorable kitty.
Please do not abandon your animal, they deserve so much more.
