On a recent visit to the physical therapist a fellow patient, Donna, flipped open her cellphone and asked, "Would you be interested in adopting a calico cat?"
"This sweet kitty was left behind when the guy downstairs was evicted from his apartment by the marshalls. The landlord found her and put her out on the fire escape." Donna has been feeding her and caring for her ever since. This week it turned cold in New York City and she was in the process of preparing a shelter for her.
I must say I was tempted. She is so beautiful. She looks like one of the kitties in my ACEO, "Kitties in Love." But our 20 year old cat, Yogi, has already endured the introduction of wild boy Dubinsky (aka Dubi) into our household. I've offered to help Donna with catfood.
If anyone is interested in adopting this sweet Bronx Kitty or if you know of a reliable animal rescue organization in the Bronx, NY, please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much !
