I got an email today with the details of Simba, the little cat I am sponsoring! As soon as I got the email of course I burst out crying, but when I read it again, I was happy to know that I am helping this little cat, who has now settled in his foster home and being so well looked after! So the money I send once a month will help towards him. Anyhow, here is what the Cat society told me about Simba :

"Here is some info and photos of Simba, I hope you don't find them too upsetting, they certainly upset me, so be prepared before you look at them, unfortunately this is the reality of people's neglect.

Simba is one of the lucky ones, he's no longer in pain and has quality of life now.

No detailed story as such, but this is what we know.

He was abandoned at a vets in very poor condition with total blindness in one eye and rapidly diminishing sight in the other. After a period of treatment (at the vets) his discomfort escalated and glaucoma was diagnosed after he came into HAWS care. One eye was removed by our vets immediately to ease his pain. The second eye has just been removed for the same reason and he is now beginning his recovery. Despite what he's been through he's a happy, purry cat, and very settled in his foster home. His foster mum sometimes forgets he is blind as he gets around so well.

Thank you so much for sponsoring him."

Hope you like his photos! I think he is absolutely gorgeous!

Oh poor little thing. I don't know why people are so cruel. What do they gain by being cruel to a small animal?

Aw, poor little fellow! I'm glad you helped looking out for him. There's a prayer about dogs that I think applies to cats as well, "Dear God, please help me be as good as my dog thinks I am!" It was fun chatting with you this am (your afternoon), Veevs!
