This is not a story about my own kitty. It is a story about a dear friend who rescued a stray that had come into her yard. He was painfully thin, hungry and crying. My friend fed him and being a volunteer at our local shelter, she thought to bring him to the vet to be neutered and hopefully placed in a forever home. Things went awry very quickly in surgery for Blackie and he suffered many complications. Blackie was sent to the ICU, where he had 3 more surgeries to save his life. My friend Gay's concern was not the expense, but to make sure Blackie was not suffering. She rescued this kitty over and over again and kept him not because of the cost, but because he has the heart of a lion. Blackie is still in the ICU today and improving. He aready has brought so much to his new forever family.
