Sometimes, That Little Voice Inside You is God – Driven

 

Last night, quite late Mike’s blood sugar plummeted and I had to run to the store to get some sugared snacks to bring it back up. On the way home (It was about 10:30 p.m. I see a cat carrier at the side of the highway. As I drove past, I watched it pitch forward and thought (certainly not?) No one would leave a cat on the road in a carrier in 30 degree weather? Well guess what, they would and they did. I stopped and walked back and this cat was wild to get out. Thankfully, if the carrier had been thrown- it was sturdy enough to stay intact so I took kitty back to the house and examined her carefully. She is not fully feral but she isn’t socialized either. She was limping on her front leg- she is a polydactyl and I saw that her dewclaw was curled down into her pad- she was also full of mats from neck to tail.

 

She has been at the vet’s most of the morning. They have sedated her and started working on her- clipping her monster mats off (she is 18 pounds). By her coloring, she is calico/maine coon mix- gray and white, long hair with a badly infected paw. Those mats didn’t just spring up overnight- they take weeks and months to form. I am calling her Fluff because she really is a large ball of fluffy fur and maybe if I call her a sweet name, her wild side will tame down and she will be a lovely cat that I will be able to place in a home. I would guess she is about 8 years old. Whatever possessed someone to drop her in the night in such a precarious place is anyone’s guess and after paying for Solo and Slip- our fund isn’t going to cover the sedation and work she needs- but what do you do? Turn a blind eye and hope someone else will come along  and “help her.” Nope- you just listen to that small voice and know that it is guiding you to do the right thing regardless-

I’ll be dipped- she has a chip! Calling about her now

Ok that’s odd- her chip is out of Las Vegas! Maybe I should call her Vegas? LOL

She is back from the vet, she is pretty upset- she had two infected pads because the claws were growing into her pads of her feet. She was infested with fleas but not dewormed (They gave her a capstar) and they shaved her entire belly from neck to  butt. She is in foster care- we just don’t have room for her here at this time.Waiting to hear from her owners but if they think I am going to take her to Las Vegas, they have another thought coming! Not that I wouldn’t love to go and connect with some old friends there- but I can’t possibly leave Mike that long- or the other cats here.

  1. Tragic, I hate people some times and this is one of them. but of course God whispers in Mary Anne’s ear, you have to hurry Mary Anne this baby of mine needs you NOW!!! You may not feel it at times but you are truly blessed Mary Anne and I nay we love you for it!

  2. No contact from the owners. Vegas is in foster care. I found out if after 21 days, the owners do not contact us, she can go up for adoption. I believe her foster family is already fast in love with her!

    I just think that I am more apt to notice things than other people. Last night again coming home late from town there was a little white kitten along the highway! It was in the wild part of the highway known as the narrows. By the time it registered what I saw and I could get a break in the traffic and flip a U-turn that was legal- the kitten was gone. 🙁 I did three passes along the narrows looking for her. If she was 2 months old I would be surprised. There was a car idling on the side of the road ahead of her- did they dump her? I don’t know but I have been back several times looking for her since. There are homes up in the hills, hopefully she found a warm spot that has food for her. I wish I would have just stopped but the traffic was too heavy at the time and I had no flashlight to search for her. I now have an emergency box of supplies and a carrier inside my truck just in case.
