I am sure you have heard the news that my good furiend Lucky has found a furever home. He went to the human who initially took him to the Homeless Animals Rescue Team, and who became his foster human. That is a long way from being a cat on the streets and subject to abuse by an evil human. Every time I feel bad about being a diabetic cat, I remind myself I have always had a human who protects and takes care of me.
I shared with you the story of Fortune, who was in the same shelter as Lucky. Poor Fortune was stuck in the shelter for even longer than Lucky, and also had a neck wound that needed treatment. Fortune’s injuries were not as severe as Lucky’s but that open wound still caused a lot of discomfort.
You will remember that I told you that Fortune was a very pretty girl. Well, I have to change that, because even the humans in white coats make mistakes. Fortune is actually a very handsome boy!
Like Lucky and me, Fortune is a special needs cat. He is not a diabetic cat like me, nor did he suffer the kind of abuse that Lucky did. During his time on the streets, though, Fortune got FIV. He can still live a long and happy life if the right precautions are taken, and he found a human who will take those precautions.
I often say it takes a special human to take on the added responsibilities of taking care of a special needs cat. That is exactly what happened with Fortune. The kind human who adopted him was drawn to him because of his illness. She went to visit Fortune, and it was love at first sight. Now Fortune has a furever home!
Fortune’s foster human, and the human who adopted him deserve a lot of thanks and I send them purrs, happy paw taps, and head bonks. But you humans deserve them too. If you did not step up and help Lucky, then HART would not have been able to help Fortune, too. It is because of the kindness of many humans that Lucky, Fortune, and many others have been helped.
