It seems the only time we blog these days is for events, and today is no exception.
Late last year Mommy reconnected with one of her good friends from high school on Facebook. It had been 30 years since Mommy had seen Richard but she quickly realized why she had been friends with him in the first place - he loves cats! More specifically, he loved his cat - Galine.
Galine had Cerebellar Hypoplasia which made her walk a little funny but it just made Richard love her even more. About a month ago, Richard adopted a kitten that had been rescued from a feral colony. He originally wanted the new little one to be a friend for Galine, but he was unaware that Galine was ailing with kidney cancer. Sadly, she passed away on July 23rd.
Richard was inconsolable, but he realized that his new kitten was lonely so he set out to adopt a new kitten to bond with the little one.
What he found was a pair of kittens that had been abandoned on the farm of a woman who was receiving chemotherapy and was rarely there. He adopted them both and saved them from a life outside.
Now his home is full of love with these three young cats! Galine was loved so much and we know she'd be happy that her Daddy opened his home to these three beautiful cats.
Thank you, Richard, for saving these babies. We send purrs and head bumps.
