CAT OF THE WEEK

(#14-275) Louie is a big, sweet, neutered, older guy around 10 years old. He is just a laid back snuggly lover. He loves to sleep in bed with you. Due to his IBS, we found it is best controlled on a strict wet food diet. Louie is currently being cared for in a foster home.image

A RESCUE PRAYER
Now I lay me down to rest
I pray my soul can stand this test
Of watching critters lose their homes
While owners gripe and cry and moan
I long for strength of spirit that
They’ll find a loving home again
Where they will know a loving heart
I can’t do much, but it’s a start
And spare me from the owner’s pleas
About the baby’s allergies
Or how they’re moving out-of-state
Or spitefulness ‘tween cat and mate
Please keep me sane while dealing with
The woman who bought as a gift
A wriggling tiny ball of fluff
That now is playing way too rough
Remind me I should bite my lip
When confronted with “he grew too quick”
“I didn’t know he’d get so large”
“He seems to think that he’s in charge
Protect my heart when I hear them say
“I think we’ll breed our dog one day”
Sometimes I think it’ll break in two;
Each day brings trials harsh and new
And if I die before I wake
I pray one hopeless soul you’ll take
My tears are gone, my faith is bare
Lord, please hear my rescue prayer.

Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corrodor 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. 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 well. 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 today.
