Her eyes met mine as
she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels.
I felt her need
instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail,
not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.
As she stopped at my
kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage.
I didn't want her to
know that I hadn't been walked today. Sometimes the
shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.
As she read my
kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the
future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life.
She got down on her
knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my
head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips
caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.
A tear fell down her
cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be
Soon my kennel door
opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms.
I would promise to
keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to
do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.
I was so fortunate
that she came down my corridor. So many more are out
there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be
saved. At least I could save one.
I rescued a human
What did I do wrong? I am one of many MOTHER cats that Precious Paws Rescue took in when I had a litter of kittens in shelter care. As the shelters have no room for me to raise a family, Myself and all of my newborn kittens are euthanized when they are 2-3 days old if a RESCUE does not take the whole family. Groups such as Precious Paws take us to a FOSTER home to raise our families and find us a FOREVER HOME. Most of the time our families (KITTENS) get homes and we are left in foster care waiting our turn. PLEASE ADOPT AN ADULT CAT and give these MOTHERS a GIFT of a HOME for LIFE. Most are only 1-3 years old
Spring has arrived. Plan for you and your pets by spay/neutering so that we can reduce the number of unwanted kittens and puppies. It only takes ONE litter per animal and thousands will be born each year.
