I have shared many stories of the things that Michigan Cat Rescue does. I think I first introduced you to them when I told you about Bindy. This poor girl was beaten to the point where she lost one of her eyes. Why was she abused so horribly? Because the humans who were supposed to care for her didn’t get her fixed and she got pregnant. There is never a reason to abuse an animal, my furiends, and this excuse was a horrible one.
Bindy is now happy in a furever home, and she has learned to trust the very kind human who treats her like any feline should be treated — with love. And she gives that love right back.
Now Michigan Cat Rescue is caring for another special needs cat. When he was rescued, he was drenched from the rain, scared, and confused. They took him to the humans in white coats and they learned that he was blind. The humans in white coats could not say if it was something he was born with, or if it was due to trauma as he was missing some teeth as well.
Other than being blind and missing a few teeth, this boy was perfectly healthy and Michigan Cat Rescue has been nursing him to health. They gave him the name Mr. Magoo. When he recovers, he will be adopted to a home which is well suited to handle a blind cat. That means a home with adults only, no dogs, and maybe one other mellow cat to be his furiend.
My house is full of felines right now, and I live too far away to bring in Mr. Magoo anyway. But even if I told the human take him in, it would not be good for him. With three bengals, it would be too much for him!
Mr. Magoo has many applications for his adoption, so he will find a furever home for sure. Michigan Cat Rescue is only going to adopt him to someone in the local area, as they do not want to see this poor boy traumatized any more by excessive travel. But they have many other felines who are looking for a home, including some bengal mix kittens!
One of the humans who likes reading what I say does some work with Michigan Cat Rescue and she said that they are “small but mighty.” And they are. Many of my fellow felines owe their lives to this cat rescue group.
