In a touching Instagram post, Rob Maguire gives tribute to his rescued cat for blessing his life. He shared how his cat’s ability to model strength and determination at the worst time of its life changed his life forever.
Fire cat rescue
Dobby, a tiny ginger kitten, was rescued from a garage fire in May 2019. Firefighters in Sudbury, Canada, had just put out a garage fire and returned to the scene to double-check the area when they heard the meows of a cat calling for help.
They rescued a small ginger kitten badly burned amongst the rubble. The tiny kitten was brought to Walden Animal Hospital for immediate care after being injured with second and third-degree burns and covered in dry tar.
Walden Animal Hospital staff went to work in getting this little kitten on the road to recovery, documenting the journey on social media.
Rescued cat with a fighting spirit
Rob Maguire saw a post on social media and met Dobby in person. The injured kitten captured his heart from the start.
While Dobby spent time at the Walden Animal Hospital, he displayed a fighting spirit despite his sustained pain and injuries. He wanted to continue playing, eating, and engaging with others around him.
His spirit and energy inspired the staff and Macguire so much that he adopted him.
Fast forward to today, Dobby, the fire cat, is thriving. He recently celebrated his third birthday.
And he has recovered from his injuries and living a full life with his dad and siblings, Georgie and Orion, at home.
Amidst harrowing circumstances, Dobby the fire cat survived against all odds. His unbreakable spirit, tender loving care, and compassion from rescuers and caregivers helped give this kitten a second chance at life.
Adopting Dobby helped transform Maguire’s life for the better and left an indelible impression on the hearts of everyone that followed his journey.
On Instagram, Maguire states,
“I love sharing Dobby’s story because of his inspiration. He is testimony to the fact that even when life gets you down there is still good – fight the good fight, stay strong and strive to enjoy all the wonderful things that life offers. Thank you Dobby – you were sent by angels and you inspire many people in times of need.”
