Nothing warms our hearts as much as a good rescue story—and this is a great one! This small cat, named BB-8 after the Star Wars robot, was given a second chance at life thanks to a true Homer's Hero. He was found motionless on the side of the road in British Columbia by a truck driver named Dennis, on his way to work one rainy morning.
Another person had also stopped, and at first they feared the worst. But when they checked, they found that the cat was still alive.
The other driver gave Dennis a box for the cat, and Dennis drove him to a vet.
After dropping the cat off, Dennis requested that he be given first opportunity to adopt BB-8 if his owners shouldn't arrive.
While the vet was able to locate BB-8's original human, she had surrendered the cat over a year ago and was unable to re-adopt him.
So, Dennis decided to adopt BB-8 himself!
BB-8 still has a few weeks of recovery at the vet's office ahead of him—but it won't be too long until he and Dennis are reunited furever.
It probably comes as no surprise to learn that Dennis is a rescuer, and also has a rescue bro-fur and sis-fur, Ricky and Lucy, for BB-8 to bond with once he's well enough to come home.
A brand new happy family!
