My friend, neighbor and fellow animal advocate, Tina called me yesterday to tell me a terrible story about a young cat who had been abused and was in need of a place to recuperate. Her sister, Cathy happened upon this little guy whose tail had been badly burned and was infected.
Out of the kindness of her heart she took him to her vet to be treated and neutered. The vet needed to amputate his tail and “Nugget” needed a place to recuperate until a home could be found for him. This is where Jim and I came in. Tina called and asked if we could keep him for a while and of course we said yes. I fixed up my office and he will stay as long as needs be until he is well enough to go to his forever home.
If you’d like to visit our new houseguest and perhaps decide to make him your own, this would be great. Or if you know of a good home in need of a cute little “Bob” cat, please let them know that we’d love for them to visit.
When I hear about stuff like this my blood boils and my heart breaks. I’ve often said I like animals more than people and it’s partly true. Thank you Tina, and thank your sister for her kindness. Now lets find little Nugget a good home. 🙂
