An animal never forgets an act of kindness. Last year I adopted a skinny, depressed Bearded Dragon, she is elderly, only has one foot and half a tale. She had been in the petshop for months because people want the perfect pet so she was ignored, now she is a happy little dragon, always wanting to be picked up, talked to, cuddled. she is such a lovely pet to have and even though her years advanced she will live out her days being loved and wanted, we humans can make such a difference to an animals life.
You do great work for our feline friends, such kindness they will not forget :)

A rather sad history which found a happy end !!

All in all I had 6 cats, from among we found one abandonned in a box with his sisters and brothers (they found other families). Another living outside (during about 2 years as I learnt), then knocking at my door (an image) but who died 18 months later in my home due to urinary gravels. Moreover I had two cats coming from an animal shelter.......

This lovely cat looks very much like the feral kitty my cousin & her husband adopted..
They have spayed/neutered numerous cats over the last fifteen years. It is just great when all works out and a loving home is there for them to begin a new, happy life.
