Today I am bringing you two stories from Best Friends Society. The first one is called Former FLOCK (For the Love Of Cats and Kittens) Prez Charged with Animal Cruelty and the other is about Peanut the Cat. I think you will really like the story about Peanut. She is a very brave cat, but you will have to read on to find out why!
Sharon "Sheri" Allen, former president of FLOCK has been formally charged with animal cruelty. This is a very good thing because she was not a good friend to cats. She did not allow hardly any volunteers into her shelter which will probably seem odd to you. She did not allow any in because she was housing over 800 malnourished and diseased cats. I am not even joking, 800. She was also found to have 114 cats in her house. It is not normal to have so many cats in your house I do not think.
Most of the cats were severely malnourished, some near death. They suffered from upper respiratory illnesses as well as ear mites, tapeworm, rotten teeth and gums, open wounds or eye infections. At least 40 died because they were so sick and weak.""If convicted, she would face maximum penalties of up to six months in jail, 120 hours of community service and a fine of $1,000 on each count. She is scheduled to be arraigned April 14."
Now to a story that will make you much happier. Best Friends Society currently has a guest called Peanut. She was originally part of a feral community of cats. Then one day, a very mean person shot her. That was not nice of the mean human at all. She was brought to Best Friends and they nursed little Peanut back to health , but she was scairt of humans and did not trust them at all. She could not use her back legs anymore and spent most of her day sitting in the windowsill with a blank expressions not allowing any volunteers to touch her.
Also, I am just going to come right out and say it, she has nice furs. They remind me of someone else's furs, I just cannot quite put my paw on who...
Peas, you can sponsor Peanut on the Best Friends website, that would be very nice. Or you can adopt her! I am thinking that we can all agree she deserves a furrever home too!
Have a nice Caturday!
