I am a bengal cat who was born in 2005. In the summer of 2012, I was diagnosed as a diabetic cat. I want everyone to know that diabetic cats like me are just as fun and loving as cats without the disease.
Furiends, today I bring you some very sad news. Spirit, who is a special needs cat like me because he is blind, was seized from his human. Not only that, but all of the animals that Spirit’s human was caring for were seized as well.
Spirit’s human received no word that this might happen. The actions taken by the city seem to have been done because of a complaint from a single vindictive person. And now, the city where Spirit’s human lives is taking a hard line. The city says they can have Spirit and their personal animals back. The price for this? Admitting they are an animal abuser.
Furiends, this is ridiculous. Would a human who abuses animals place 41 cats in good homes? Would they drive all the way across the country, placing cats in good homes and not receiving any green paper things in compensation? Would they pass up their cancer treatment in order to fund the care of their cats?
You know as well as I do that the answer to these questions is no. And the humans who have seized Spirit and the other animals should know this as well. But even if they do, they are not acting that way.
On October 10, Spirit’s human will go to a hearing. Here, they will learn if they are able to keep Spirit and the other felines and continue their rescue efforts. At this hearing, one of the humans in robes will decide the fate of Spirit and the other animals.
Sadly, representation in this will require many green paper things, which they do not have. That is why they are asking for help. If you can help, please send green paper things to Spirit’s human so they can fight the seizure of their beloved animals. And if you cannot send any green paper things their way, please share their story.
They are located in College Station, Texas. Two of these felines have found homes, but the mother and four of the tiny felines need these. One of the felines has a problem urinating when he should not and will likely need a diaper to keep from making a mess.
Do not worry about this feline, furiends, if you think that they might make a good addition to your family. Other than the bladder control issue, this feline is furiendly and healthy. He just cannot control his bladder and will have to wear a diaper or be in a place where that is not a problem.
Spirit and her human estimate the mother cat to be around one year of age. The kittens are twelve weeks old, and they are wonderful felines. The mother is very patient and loving, and because of Spirit’s fans, humans who wish to adopt these felines may be able to get help transporting the cats to their location.
If you are interested in adopting one of these felines, please contact Spirit’s human. And if you cannot take one of these cute felines home, please share their story so that someone can.
It is always a good day when a feline goes to a good home, furiends. Let’s see if we can help Spirit make that happen for these cats!
Furiends, one of my fellow special needs cats who I admire the most is Spirit, A Blind Cat. This brave feline was the victim of horrible animal abuse, but he managed to escape and found a human who provides him with a loving home. Spirit clearly has not forgotten where he came from. In fact, recently, he was a vital part of a cat rescue mission.
Spirit’s human had a friend who had trapped a feral cat, who she thought was pregnant. This feline was taken to the humans in white coats to be spayed, and during the procedure, the humans in white coats said that she had given birth.
This feral cat had been seen around a construction site, and had been known to take refuge under a temporary trailer. Well, Spirit’s human and a furiend were able to get access to the site so that they could begin the cat rescue.
Half of the ground under the trailer where the kittens were suspected to have been born was under water. The other half was mud. Spirit and his two human helpers went searching for the kittens through this mess.
It took a while, but Spirit detected something. He alerted the humans helping him search for the kittens that he found them. They were located just beneath the floor of the trailer. A heavy plastic sheet kept them above the ground.
The humans who Spirit helped with the cat rescue slowly removed the kittens from the barrier. There were four of these little felines. Each one was placed in a clean towel, and then in a warm box.
They are now being cleaned, fed, and kept warm. And because of Spirit, this cat rescue happened just in time. The weather conditions where these felines were rescued are likely to drop close to freezing tonight.
Because of Spirit’s help, two humans were able to perform a desperately needed cat rescue. It is wonderful to see a feline like Spirit helping other felines!
