4/9/19 – We’ve had so many sad and serious cases lately. So, our good friend, Andra Shipley, who works very hard caring for cat communities and rescuing, sent us this message. These photos have to warm your heart. What a wonderful, caring son.~ diana
” Hi Diana. With the slew of sad stories today, I thought I would send you this tale of joy. Last year, 4Paws1Heart subsidized the sterilization of 28 cats and kittens from a neglectful barn owner in Armada. All of the cats were sick, covered in fleas, and several of the tiny kittens died from illness or anemia – including one of Lucy’s babies. Lucy was one of the cats that was removed from the barn and put into foster care at my home. It was quickly discovered that Lucy had a personality that was meant to be shared. My son Nathan needed to do a senior service project for school. He chose to become certified as a therapy pet handler, and Lucy is now a therapy cat that goes to hospitals, nursing homes, and libraries to show people just how sweet a rescue cat can be! So, thanks to you for helping us save Lucy, and letting her bring joy to others! I attached a picture of her when we first brought her home, and a few pictures of her doing therapy. It’s amazing how much she has transformed once she got the proper food and love! Thanks again!!
