We call this sweet girl Miracle because it is truly a miracle that she is still alive. She came to us from Taccoa-Stephens Humane Shelter, skin and bones, and with a litter of pups. It was soon discovered that her problems stemmed from a doggie version of a cleft palate, which in her case was a large whole in the roof of her mouth. This made it difficult to eat and could have been life threatening.
Here's a "Happy Tail" about two adult cats who found a loving home thanks to the Georgia SPCA! It is always harder to find homes for adult cats, and when adopters Ted and Kevin first saw GG, she had an even greater challenge: all of her fur was shaved in a "lion cut" and she was wearing a big plastic cone around her neck because she was so matted when we rescued her that she had to be shaved, and unfortunately, was nicked in the process. Ted and Kevin saw her inner beauty and took her home.
Now four pounds may not seem like a lot to you, but when you’re a cat and four pounds is one-fourth of your total body weight—that is a lot! Sandra, like so many of us, is facing the New Year with the need to lose some weight—four pounds to be exact. After all, how many times can a cat hear the words, “Is she pregnant” before it starts to get personal? What are people thinking? That the Georgia SPCA is trying to adopt out a pregnant cat? No way! It has been too long to continue to call it baby fat. Her six kittens were adopted out months ago. So it’s time to get real.
Carmen, who adopted little Widget, shared a "Happy Tail". "I have named her Daisy and I think she and Rosie will be best buds. They seem to share the same things (the sun) and soft fluffy beds. Daisy is a jumper she can jump up in my lounge chair and snuggle down in my blanket. Thanks so much for letting me adopt Daisy she is so special."
And thanks to Laura and Tammy, our great fosters, who took such good care of Widget until she was adopted.
Isn't ten months too much time to invest to find one cat the perfect home? Not for the Georgia SPCA! The cost of time was a small price to pay to save a terrified two year old orange tabby named Willie.
