You must be in charge over there.
I heard your humans are on a cruise.
Be good and take care of Daisy and Harley.
You know I’m in the care-taking business.
Since we lost my Helen Keller I haven’t had anyone to care for.
That changed last week.
You know I love my bow ties.
This is a new one.
Notice the pose.
It’s my typical, “Look at my bow tie” pose.
I’ve got a new little girl in training!
Here she is…
…this is Courage.
She has already learned the official Bow-Tie bow tie pose!
Last weekend a rescue group came to me because they heard about my care-taking skills.
They wanted a special home for this special needs little girl.
Of course I opened my doors and my heart.
Like me, she is from a terrible hoarding house.
When she and 24 other cats were rescued, she was the worst of them all.
Her eyes were so infected and painful they both had to be removed.
She is only nine months old, but all nine months were lived in pain and fear.
She is going to help me speak up for cats in hoarding situations.
Why do they do this to us?
It’s so bad.
My mission is to put a stop to it.
In the meantime, I have Courage, she has courage, and she will help get the message out.
Look at her… Isn’t she cute?
She has a soft place to land now, she’s safe, and she’s pain-free.
Look at her tail.
She pulled all of the hair out, and out of her back, from the stress of it all.
She’s still pretty.
We’ll get her all fixed up and she will be my helper.
Right now she is a little fearful of other cats (including me) – she was tormented by the bigger, sighted cats, and she is just afraid.
Sometimes she hisses at me when I try to get close.
I don’t get it.
But we’re working on that.
And you know if anyone can turn her around, it’s me…
…I have a way with the ladies, you know!
