Life is a funny thing, and this is why I believe in Miracles...
In January, Dot came to Catster. Dot's story, which can be seen in full on Facebook, is rather strange and wonderful. Dot was born with a rare condition in cats, Spina Bifada. She has little use of her hind legs, and other stuff that is different. But no one told Dot.
Dot was born in a gararge in Va. She was found by a kind person, who reached out on her behalf. One thing led to another and someone, a smart and wonderous someone, made a series of videos of Dot. Mom saw the first one-Dot Dynamite, which can be seen on Utube. Mom laughed and cried and watched it over and over and over again.
And apparently, so did many people and furs. Before you knew it, Dot was known all over!!!! In other countries, even!
And so the Miracle happened! People began to write to Dot and her 'Team'. People joined Team Dot! People and furs wrote and sent love and purrs and $ to help Dot to find a furever home.
And the Miracle: 2 Special Needs Cats were adopted from Tabby's Place in NJ. The Leaders of Team Dot applied for admission for Dot to Tabby's Place....and Dot was accepted!
Now, Tabby's Place is a very different and wonderful Cat Shelter and Sanctuary. It takes in only cats that might not be conventionally adoptable-cats that have issues that may make them harder to find homes for. Please go and check out their site....their wonderful Team believe in miracles daily...and help them to happen!
Dot has been garnering fans and friends there....she is the Star of the Sanctuary.
And so...a little kitten that some might have considered 'unadoptable' has become a Star, and now has a whole network of people to love and cherish her, and that includes us, my dear Furs.
Dot is the best of us. For myself, with FIV+, I think of the rescue who didn't want me there, because I was 'contageous' and I think....
Dot, way to go little girl!
Thank you, good humans, who never gave up, who believed, who would not take NO for an answer. Thank you for believing with your hearts, and for reaching out, stretching out. Thank you, Ceiling Cat and Bast, and wonderous Creator for the wonderful energy. Thank you for a Miracle!
Dot is one of us. She's US. All of US. She's the brown tabby with no tail and the biggest eyes. She's the little one born in a manger with no home. She's 'different' and as such, 'Special'.
We're all Special, Furs. All of us.
And we're all Miracles!
And if Dot can find this wonderful loving place that will devote time, $, love and care and find her a permanent home, or else she'll live there with her public able to visit and love on her...well, if Dot can do it....
Then all those Furs out there in need can too...
There is always Hope, Furs.
Thank you Dot! Thank you Tabby's Place! Thank you Team Dot!
And thank you Universe!
Here is a link to Dot's page on Tabby's Place. She and many other wonderful 'special needs' cats are available for sponsoring and even adoption......
Love and light,
Shine bright little Miracle,
