TT's Saturday Matinee
Remember how the kittehs Sweetie Pie and Ethan (the kitteh in the picture above) were rescued by our lovely CB furiends? Here is Sweetie Pie, now named Sugar Ray.
On August 8th, this stray cat faced imminent death at a California animal shelter because he was aggressive and too difficult for shelter workers to handle. To adopt him, we had to sign a waiver agreeing not to sue the shelter if the cat injured us. The shelter and their vet claimed the cat was too violent to vaccinate, so he was released without his FVRCP. We suspected he was probably just frightened, and not aggressive, and we were right. After testing positive for FIV, and nearly dying from pneumonia, here's the cat that had shelter workers and vets shaking in their shoes. This video was taken less than 3 weeks after the cat was scheduled to die.
Read more about Sugar Ray and the cat who was rescued with him (an elderly FIV+ cat named Ethan) at http://www.weepaws.org. Both cats are available for adoption to perfect homes - they deserve no less than perfect. Otherwise, we'll be happy to have them spend the rest of their days at Wee Paws, although Sugar Ray's paws are anything but "wee"!
