The rescue cat week is a great idea! I’ve loved reading about all the great cats who have found their forever homes.
My rescue cat is, of course, Percy.
When I went to the shelter, he was stuffed into a small cubby on top of the fireplace mantel, and he came strolling down to snack on some treats I had. Then he flopped over and let me scritch his cheeks. When I was about to stop, he grabbed my hand so I wouldn’t leave.
I found out later that he’d been abandoned at a rental property when the tenants moved, and that he’d spent a lot of time out of doors. He also had entropion eyes and needed surgery to fix the eyelids. As you can see, he’s recovered well, and I’m so glad we found each other.
