So I've been volunteering at the cat shelter in town for a couple of weeks now and all I have to say is thank god I have Ribbon, because I literally would have at least three of these cats if I didn't know that Ribbon would throw a fit and hate me forever. There is one little kitty in particular at the cat shelter called Flame that I am so desperate to take home. She's about 14 and the poor thing had a eye taken out a couple of weeks ago. She also looks like her nose has been sunburned badly and being old she seems to have arthritis. She's a wreck, but one of the sweetest cats I've ever met. I wish I could give her a home as all she needs is a place to call her own and some daily attention. It breaks my heart to see her at the shelter, and because of how she looks with one eye and all being old she probably doesn't have much of a chance of being adopted.
Don't get me wrong the shelter is great. The cats are well taken care of, they all get tons of attention, but still they are in the cages alot and obviously just want some love. It breaks my heart to see so many loveable cats in need of a home.
So if anyone is looking for a cat anytime soon, come see the cats at my shelter! I know, I know there are cats at your local shelter who also need homes, so even if you can't come see these loveable cats, when you do look for one don't go straight for the kitties, the older ones need a home too and they're usually way more loveable and cuddly than a kitty with all their energy. Believe me I know. Living with a kitten and an old cat has made me appreicate my loving, slow, cuddly old man who would rather sleep next to me than run around like a spaz all day long.
Sorry for the rant, but everytime I think about Flame, I just want to find her a home. I hate to see lonely kitties. But it's okay, I'm going to the shelter tomorrow so I'll be able to pay her some attention.
I'll also eventually post a picture of our spaz kitty as she's adorable and deserving of internet fame and fortune.
