Dear Furs and Folks,
This past week Mommy has been stressed and ill. She's run down, tired and daddy's had the flu, and been working during it.
Something else was also haunting mommy-a small tabby cat with a white fae and cocoa streak down his nose, who sat, tired and defeated looking, at the Center for Animal Care and Control in Brooklyn.
On death row, Mommy sent up some energy for him...
The next day-his bio was gone.
Mommy cried and got upset. She was told by a volunteer that he was the only cat not spoken for by a rescue.
He could not be found.
Mommy feared the worst.
Mommy came to me and leaned into my fur. "Ruffy, Ruffy..make it alright. Please. Ask those over us to watch...please don't let him be gone."
I purred and glanced into that abyss between here and forever.
Nothing is ever forever, Mommy, except love.
The week dragged by. Mommy kept searching for Paw's profile. Finally, she saw the posting under it...Paws was alive!
Mommy called Daddy crying. Now, Daddy is a softee, as I can tell you. Daddy told mommy 'get a resecue and lets get him out of there."
Mommy called two, including the small one she and Daddy usually work with. They said no.
She called another. They said 'no'.
She leapt in with both feet-she called a small one she had worked with to try to save Babydoll, the kitty who went to the Bridge.
She left a very heart wrenching email.
That morning Mommy had to go to school She had left them Daddy's number. When Mommy came out on break, Daddy told her 'There's a hold on Paws for us! Brooklyn Bridge Animal Rescue Coalition pulled him.
Mommy cried and laughed.
Yesterday Paws came to be here.
I have not seen him, though I have heard he got out of the cage he's supposed to stay in and is under the bed. He's not feeling his very best-he has a slight case of ringworm and is sneezing slightly. Mommy had tried to keep him in the cage but he slipped past her arm when she tried to put him back in.
But he is not on death row many more.
Paws only crime to be on death row? He was 8 years old, and his former family had a baby and no time for him.
But here, Paws will find, despite 7 of us-and he makes 8-there will be good meals, scritches, a grumpy Natcat, and love.
A woman mommy was in school with, when she heard what Mommy and Daddy had done said 'But you have 7 other cats-why would you do this?"
Mommy shook her head. She's realized some people don't get it. She said 'Because I reached out to others-and when there wasn't an answer-I realized there was and it was us. Sometimes you have to be the change you want to see in the world."
Welcome in 'from the cold, Paws. From a fellow who stood at the door, looking in as well-I stand up on my hind legs and salute you, and the wonderful people at Brooklyn Bridge Animal Rescue Coalition who beleived.
love and light,
trust, dear furs and folks that Miracles Do Occur,
