While on a rescue mission last week to our local Animal Control Services, aka "The Pound", a euthanizing facility, I met Peggy. Peggy is a very young cat that was found in the middle of a road. She had broken her back leg at some point and it had healed incorrectly. It basically sticks straight out. However, Peggy is one of the sweetest cats I have ever met. She is a total lap cat who purrs constantly and always comes to you when she is called. Her disability doesn't stop her from getting around, has no trouble getting along with other cats, and using a litter box.
I didn't know how much longer Peggy had in her teeny cage at "The Pound" so I "pulled" her (as they call it) and brought her back to our non-euthanizing SPCA facility. She is doing well and seems quite happy.
I have been using every advertising venue that I know of to get Peggy a very good home. We have already gotten some calls about her. I'm really hoping she gets placed in a nice home soon. Peggy is not just a special needs cat, but very special as well. I would love to have a wing at our facility for special needs and "unadoptable" pets someday.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
