When Jennifer, a lady from Alberta, Canada, went to take out the garbage that morning like she did every day, she had no idea how her life would soon alter. She believed she noticed a rucksack with a strange contents when she opened the trash can.
He searched as best he could only to be horrified to find a living tiny animal within the sack. It was a cat, and based on the expression on its tiny face, it was not very healthy. Without thinking twice, Jennifer picked up the helpless animal and held him in her arms.
She brought the animal to the veterinarian with her husband James, who was horrified when he saw the situation. Who could be capable of leaving a little animal in those circumstances, let alone shutting the bag to prevent him from escaping his fate or being discovered?
Hiro’s battle started. He needed hip surgery, but given his current health, he couldn’t endure the procedure. They managed to stabilize him in this way, with a lot of love and commitment, until he was ready to take the most challenging step and undergo surgery.
Hiro got an operation. James and Jennifer hoped that the small animal would be resilient enough to face the obstacle. They learned from the cat a few days later that the procedure had been successful and that he was battling valiantly.
Jennifer and James would not turn their backs on Hiro because they knew that he was a great warrior and that he would not give up, even though the recovery would be gradual since the hearts they love do not recognize time.
Hiro was able to walk once more after the miracle. The cat was finally ready to find a loving home, but Jennifer and James didn’t even consider it at the time. They were happy to welcome Hiro home, knowing that he would have a fantastic life that would make up for his pain.
Jennifer set up a Facebook account for Hiro Stanley in order to share his inspiring story with others. Even more stunning and unexpected is the motivation for that middle name.
Hiro wasn’t only grateful that Jennifer and her family had given him another opportunity; he also felt grateful. Additionally, he supported Jen’s father during his battle with illness, earning him the moniker “Stanley”.
