"Day by day she got better," says Lam. "She ate a lot of food - especially wet food."
Lam would have loved to have kept Clover, but she already had several dogs and cats, and her landlord wouldn't allow her to keep an another animal in her apartment. She approached CatRescue 901, a Sydney-based organization that rescues cats from dire situations.
Jenny Storaker, one of CatRescue 901's founders, knew the biggest challenge in caring for Clover would be keeping her warm in the chilly Australian winter. "Because her fur is still so short, she'd feel the cold," Storaker tells The Dodo. "We purchased the smallest cat coat to help keep her warm."
