Mr. Magoo - A Cat Living On Streets Blind

Goo is a cat living on streets blind for most of his life, and no one knows how he managed to exist on his own. According to Colleen Angstadt, he is an unneutered male who was discovered wandering the streets of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Unlike every other cat, Magoo was a special needs cat who had been able to survive on the streets despite being blind. He was born with a congenital abnormality that prevented his eyelids and eyes from properly developing.

Goo was apprehended and sent to the shelter by animal control. When taken to the shelter, Goo was in a really bad state. He had trouble breathing and was very dehydrated. He was frail and suffering from a debilitating URI as well, so he couldn't eat properly.

Mr. Magoo was at grave risk of being euthanized due to his deteriorating health and the fact that he was blind on top of it. His chances of surviving didn't appear promising until he was placed on Philadelphia's Urgent Page.

Right after seeing the article on Facebook, Colleen Angstadt became aware of his plight and went out to save this cat in desperate need of affection. After that, she set out on a quest to save this wonderful cat. 

After that, Mr. Magoo was ultimately ready to move to his new forever home after a few phone calls and emails.

Mr. Magoo's Second Chance In Life

Angstadt spent many days phoning several shelters while Goo was being relocated and spoke with a dozen individuals. After that, she ultimately got the for herself since the previous foster family failed to show up.

Then things started to go downhill. Colleen and her husband could not bring Goo home when he became extremely sick overnight. So, they decided to send Goo to the vet. 

After a few days, Goo's condition at the vet's didn't improve, so they advised the couple to take care of him at home. And things only got better from there.

Colleen knew that they had made the right decision to take him home when she first saw him all wounded and leaking. "He needed us, and we needed him," she said.

Goo was better within the first three days at his little home. He recovered more quickly than expected and even gained some weight. 

Three months later, he was running and playing like a regular cat. Even Colleen and his husband were astounded by his growth and sheer determination. Colleen said that it still caused her eyes to tear up every time she recalled taking him up from the shelter ill, bleeding, and listless.

Mr. Magoo was given a second shot in life by his new family, who provided him with a comfy bed and all of the delicacies he could desire.

Conclusion

Mr. Magoo is not just a cat living on streets blind; he's definitely a fierce fighter. This little ginger cat has no idea what it's like to be able to see things, but he understands that he is flawless. Now, he's overjoyed at the prospect of a new existence.

It's unbelievable what love and affection can do for one's health and well-being.
