2 weeks ago Daddy had a man who eats at the restaurant he works with come and and they started to talk. The guy knows Daddy has us-6 of us to be exact, and told Daddy he needed help. He had bought a building and when they were checking the empty apartments it seems someone had moved and left behind their cat.
The man was perplexed, because he did not know what to do. He had 2 rescued dogs and didn't know much about cats, except to take it to the city shelter would mean it would probably be 'put to sleep' so he didnt' want to do that. He asked Daddy what to do.
Daddy and Mommy talked about it, and Mommy reached out via the 'net' (hmmmmm....net? Sounds scary, but it was useful...) and sent out an email with the kitties picture to many rescues.
A lady mommy knows came forward and said one of her cats had passed to the Bridge at the age of 15. She would be willing to help.
They kept making appointments to go and see the cat, and get him/her out of the building, but every time they did the Developer had an appointment far away. Finally it was supposed to be Sunday...but at the last moment the Developer called Carol and Daddy (mommy was in school and didn't get the call) and told them it would have to be Saturday as he was somewhere else Sat. and the building was scheduled to come down Monday.
Well, Daddy was working so Carol and a guy she knows who helps to transport went to get the cat. She called Daddy a couple hours later and said the cat did not seem friendly-the guy with her had to 'net' the cat! (see...scary!). She was bringing the cat to her vet to get checked out. She then called Daddy and told him she was going to get the cat tested, have vet give shots and see if it was spayed/neutered and if not, get that done, but she did not think she would take the cat-could a rescue be contacted?
Mommy had so many wonderful kind rescues and people step up to help, and she contacted one that seemed good-they had been one of the first to contact Mommy. They are a wonderful place called Mary's Kitty Korner in Conneticut and Mommy spoke with them and they agreed to take the kitty on Thursday.
So this Thursday, the little girl kitty (she's just 2) will get transported up to Mary's Kitty Korner. She was not spayed, and the vet felt she might have been in heat and while she is very frightened (her people left her all alone for at least a month! Of course she is frightened and betrayed and needs to learn to trust again!) she is safe.
Mommy wishes Carol would reconsider, but I have learned from watching humans that not all move at the same pace with taking a cat home to their heart. Carol did such a kind thing! And so has everyone who have come forward to make this kitty safe, surrounding her with love! Her name for now? Rescue!
We welcome Rescue in from the cold. We send her purrs and reasurrance that while life is uncertain at the moment, she is Safe. A comfortable and secure place awaits her, and she is, above all, cared for.
We ask anyone in the area Rescue is going to who might be considering a new kitty family member to consider Rescue.....after all, our Hazel Lucy, Cat Extrodinaire of Catster, as well as many of us, had similar beginnings.
Sometimes, indeed, the Universe, despite the sorrow and pain, does send us Miracles and works in wonderful Symphony.
Love and Light,
and indeed, Miracles,
