Sounds like a sappy children’s book doesn’t it? We (Jim) just discovered that Bonnie doesn’t purr. We don’t know if her motor is broken, or if she just hasn’t found anything to purr about.
We’ve tried scratching, petting, hugging, sweet-talking and treat-giving, but she just won’t do it. I’m sure there is something or some ONE out there who can make it happen, but we don’t seem to have the magic touch. Everybody has a special talent to relate to God’s creatures in a comforting way. It’s like that horse-whisperer guy, or my Aunt Jackie who was the first person EVER to rock Hannah to sleep. (She was 4 months old!)
I challenge anyone reading this to give it a shot. I’d like to hear her purr just once before she leaves to go back to the shelter. Knock on my door anytime and bring your best game. This kid is a tough nut to crack, but I know someone has the gift.
