The Animal Advocates of Moore County (AAMC) did a huge favor for me. In February, a cat started hanging around my house. It was pretty cold, and I felt bad for her. I started feeding her and tried to coax her into the house. I finally tricked her into coming into the house on her own. I called AAMC to see if they knew of anyone who was missing their cat. She was extremely sweet and a beautiful cat. Someone came to get her, and she was taken to a vet to be checked over. She was such a great cat that I decided to keep her.
About a month after her arrival, Peeps developed paralysis in her back legs. I took her to a few vets to see what could be done for her. They had me convinced that she’d never recover and we’d eventually have to have her euthanized. It was heartbreaking. I emailed AAMC to find out if anyone there had any experience with paralysis in a cat. Barb, from AAMC, actually came to my house and picked her up to take her to their vet! She then kept her for a few weeks while Peeps underwent treatment with steroids (yuck). Peeps was able to walk when she got home! So, I owe AAMC big time.
Today I received a couple of mother cats and their litters of kittens. I think there are 7 kittens. I’d have to count to be sure. I’ll keep them here until homes are found for them all. Fostering these cats is the least I can do to try to repay the folks at AAMC.
