Kitty Star of the Week for March 5 - 11, 2006

A handsome fellow named Simon is our star this week.

His person-mom writes,

"About a year ago our SAD (Society for Animals in Distress) had placed an urgent plea for someone to adopt a 6 month old kitten who had been rescued from a severely abusive home. He was left with neurological damage, loss of vision in his left eye, and minimal use of his hind legs. I cried when I read the story, my heart broke, and I then had to go to the shelter to see the little fur-butt.

"Once I saw him, and then held him like a baby in my arms, I heard his LOUD purring and he fell fast asleep, I knew I had to take him home and care for him and love him. There were exercises I needed to do with him to get his hind legs working, and to strengthen him.

"It has now been a year, and Simon is now able to walk very well, and he can now run and play and even jump up onto the furniture. A feat he was never able to do when I first brought him home.

"His name is Simon, although I sometimes like to call him Indiana Jones, the way he swings and runs around here. He loves to play with my other cat, a Maine Coon by the name of Diva. Sheíll stand for it sometimes, but at 25 pounds, she gets tired of him and will bat him away. Simon at 9 pounds tends to just roll with it.

"I have fallen completely in love with my little fur-butt. We were watching the snow fall here in Elliot Lake, Ontario Canada. After playing so hard this morning, he went to eat his favorite food which is Royal Canin kitten food. He sticks his face right in the bowl and chomps away. Itís a wonder he isnít as big as my Maine Coon!"
