White Coffee Cat deserves all the petting and “good boys” a cat can get. An Instagram sensation known for his dramatic blue eyes and snow-white fur, he’s also a hero, having survived cancer.
“The beginning of this journey was extremely heartbreaking,” his owner, Pookie Methachittiphan, relayed in an interview with Modern Cat. Adopted by Methachittiphan and her sister at only five months old, White Coffee’s beginning wasn’t easy.
Luckily, thanks to an early diagnosis, doctors could act quickly. “Coffee became very sick just one day after the diagnosis,” recalled Methachittiphan. “He didn’t show too many signs prior as we received a diagnosis quickly. We took him to see an oncologist immediately and started his first round of chemotherapy that same day.” The final rounds of chemotherapy were given to the cat once a month, the sisters were assured he was cancer-free.
Recent posts show him enjoying cuddles and kisses, as he looks adoringly to the camera. In some posts, he’s seen sporting funny costumes or fashionable sunglasses (a favorite of ours is his Harry Potter version).
“Coffee has taught us about strength and unity,” say the sisters. “He showed us how social media can bring the world together for a common purpose and taught us how love can break down barriers.” Join his ever-growing community online.
