My ginger furiend Lucky continues to recover, and this time, it’s not just from his wounds. This diabetic cat faces challenges, but nothing compared to what Lucky has dealt with. I never had to deal with the burns from being doused with acid.
But Lucky, instead of letting the cruel and evil human who tortured him crush his spirit, showed that he’s not just a loving and sweet cat, but he’s a tough cat as well. And because of this, he has become a feline model for the wonderful humans at the Homeless Animals Rescue Team.
Lucky’s week started off with a visit to the Fox affiliate in Washington DC, where he amazed the host. Not a bad way to kick off the week, even though his companion cat managed to steal some of the limelight.
You can also see a tiny little kitten named Boston here, who kind of looks like what I did when I was what my human called a tiny little mitten kitten. He had no idea I would grow so big and he didn’t have any clue that there were diabetic cats!
Lucky also has some great news to share about what you kind humans did to help the organization that rescued him, HART, win more money to help other animals that need help. HART participated in the 24 hours of giving through the United Way. Thanks to many kind humans, they were able to turn $7,500 in contributions into another $5,000 in a matching grant. In the end, they were able to raise more than $13,000 in funds.
Not a bad day for a wonderful ginger kitty, is it? And Lucky has a gift for you because you were so generous.
Whether they are diabetic cats like me, or a cat like Lucky who has to recover from injuries due to cruelty, special needs cats have a lot of love to give to the right human. If you are that right human, please seek us out when it’s time to adopt.
