Once they were finally home, DeRoche’s friend Melissa Lee came over and the pair got to work getting Chuck all cleaned up. He was clearly exhausted, and seemed so excited to finally have a safe, warm place to sleep.
“He was very relaxed in the home, sleeping a lot,” Lee told The Dodo. “I snuggled him for a while as Dustin was getting a bath ready, and he purred/fell asleep instantly.”
They gave Chuck a flea bath and combed him out as best they could, then dried him off in a nice warm towel. DeRoche decided to wrap Chuck up like a burrito to make him feel safe and warm — and he loved it so much, he fell asleep instantly.
