Lately, much of the news I have shared with you has been sad news. So today, I am very happy to give you wonderful news. You remember that our furiend Lucky was recovering from the horrible injuries that were inflicted on him. A cruel human dumped acid on our ginger boy. But after that horrible treatment by one human, many humans rallied to help Lucky recover.
His wounds were gruesome and ugly, and he had to stay at the recovery room at Parkway Veterinary Clinic. As a diabetic cat, I complain a lot about the needle sticks and ear sticks. That is nothing compared to what Lucky had to deal with.
But this didn’t stop Lucky from showing that he had a big heart and lots of love to give. He even called the recovery room the spa!
The spa was Lucky’s home for months, as the injuries that were inflicted on him healed. It was always supposed to be a temporary place for Lucky, and while he was happy there, he always wanted to go to a home.
Well, today, Lucky got his wish. He left the spa today, and made it to a foster home. There were many people who wanted to take in this brave and loving cat so that he could experience the love and care that he deserves. While Lucky would have been happy to go to any of these homes, he ended up going to the home of the photographer who has shared so many wonderful pictures of Lucky with us.
Lucky will have an appearance in the Washington DC area coming up, and he says he has a new furiend to share with us. And don’t forget, Lucky already has one furiend who is looking for a furever home, Fortune.
Lucky, Fortune, and me are all special needs cats. I am a diabetic cat. Lucky had to deal with his horrible injuries. And Fortune had to deal with a bad wound on her neck and is fighting FIV.
But while our challenges are all different, there is one common bond we have. As this video of Lucky making biscuits should show you, there is absolutely nothing wrong with our hearts.
When it’s time for you to bring another furiend into your life and home, I hope you will consider adopting a special needs one.
