Hello, all! You will notice that I finally decided to cooperate with this Halloween thing when Mom explained to me that all I had to do was slip into a digital costume! I was so relieved I even allowed her to place those silly glasses on my face! Besides, she said I was providing a very important service to catkind, so I'd best get back to watching for a cat to show up looking for a parking place.
The parking cattendant
ready to be of service
looks this way then that
If I should win, the cat I would like to sponsor is Opie, described below (because he's been through some really bad times):
Opie must be a Lord of the Rings fan, because he does his best to look like Gollum! When he's not skulking around, you'll find him hunched in the corner, looking suspicious. And he has had enough adventures to fill a book! Before he came to Best Friends, he had been wandering around Venice, California, dazed, hungry, and thirsty. Suddenly, he found himself trapped in a storm drain. He couldn't jump out! He was desperate. Little did he know, a dog would be the one to come to his rescue! A particular little dog and his person went for a walk every day past where Opie was trapped. And whenever they went by, the dog would stick his nose in to say hello. His person began to wonder what was in there. When she looked, she saw Opie! By the time he was rescued, he was really skinny - nearly dead!
After Opie was found, he was brought to the vet where it was discovered that he has diabetes as well as a spinal injury from having once been hit by a car! Because his diabetes was untreated for so long, his back legs don't work so well - that's why he couldn't jump out of the storm drain. Opie had been tired, thirsty, and hurting for so long that he never thought he'd be happy again. But now that he's at Best Friends, he finds his mood improving every day. And it turns out that despite his sulky looks, he's a very personable cat. And he would love nothing more than for you to be his sponsor!https://www.bestfriends.org/donate/detail.cfm?sponsor=3216&source=
