Feline, Marcy To The Rescue

Marcy To The Rescue

Cynthia:  Marcy and I are so thrilled to announce our very first donation to animal rescue with money we earned from affiliate links on our blog!

Marcy:  Hmpf. It was only $50.

Cynthia:  Hey! That’s fantastic! That’s what we made and it sure helped out a couple of cats.

Marcy:  Hmpf. I wanted that money to go towards my trip to Paris.

Cynthia:  Oh Marcy.  Look who we helped get out of a bad situation and into a new home!

Lily and Baxter

Cynthia:  That’s Lily and Baxter. Word got to our friend, Dylan Kendall, that they were losing their home immediately and were headed to the high kill North Central Shelter in Los Angeles. They wouldn’t stand a chance there since they weren’t kittens. And, even if they weren’t put down, the possibility of this bonded pair staying together was next to nil.

A new home was needed fast, as well as money for transportation and vaccines. Time was of the essence.

Dylan was able to get the cats before they entered the shelter but quickly discovered they were in bad shape and needed vet care too. Lily was way too skinny.

Lily is too skinny

Marcy:  Gasp! That’s terrible!

Cynthia:  And Baxter had a painful abscess that needed to be taken care of. Poor Baxter was miserable.

Marcy (shuddering):   I hate those cones. They should be outlawed.

Cynthia:  Our $50 along with other small donations from sweet Samaritans got them fixed up and spiffy. And being fixed up and spiffy means that a home is way easier to find.

Marcy (anxiously):  And was a home found?

Cynthia:  Yes! And with a family that will take great care of them. A wonderful family that won’t forget to feed them or let abscesses fester.

Marcy:  Yay!

Cynthia:  Shall we?

Marcy lifts her Friskies can and Cynthia raises her martini glass.

Marcy and Cynthia:  Cheers to our wonderful readers who not only don’t mind the affiliate links, they click on them to make purchases which in turn goes to save cats!

Cheers to Dylan Kendall for putting in the hard and emotional work to save Baxter and Lily!

Cheers to all the sweet Samaritans who donated a little to create a BIG difference for two cats!

Cynthia:  By the way, one of the reasons I was so frantic about Baxter and Lily was because they reminded me so much of a bonded pair that live in my home – Penelope Kitten and her best bud, Hamlet.

Marcy:  Ugh. Those two.

Cynthia:  Hamlet wants to be on the blog too, you know.

Marcy:  Fine. He can be my unpaid intern. He’ll fetch me Friskies, pick up my dry cleaning, and do my social media tasks.

Cynthia:  Uh… unpaid internships are illegal in the United States of America.

Marcy:  Yeah, but not in the United States of Marcy.

    Yay! Yo are awesome, Cynthia! What a lovely story. I am so happy they got to stay together and got the care they needed. It is a perfect ending. And Hamlet is gorgeous! He is regal. I would love to see more Hamlet… I hope Marcy isn't reading this!

    What a great story! This is such an easy way to help out cats in need. We have it set up as a favorite so every time we order from Amazon we go through Marcy's store.

    I love that painting at the top! But that one merkitty looks like he's up to no good!

    Oh, this broke my heart…lily was so skinny! Mary gets abscesses too, so I know how horrible those can be. Thanks for taking up a great cause!!! Hopefully, we'll get to see Marcy's intern 🙂

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch November 10, 2014 at 5:14 am

      Oh no – how does Mary get abscesses? I think I must not know exactly what they are. Baxter's was from a cat bite. The good news is that little Lily has put on weight and is doing great now. Baxter too!

      my intern is taking a nap. he's not very useful.

      Yeah, that sounds like how my internships were…lol. She may be getting the from the fights that she starts w Minnie…that's what I thought at first. However, one of my old kitties would just randomly get the in one of her glands, so I don't know…

      cats are so weird!

  • Reply Liana November 11, 2014 at 8:24 pm

    Oh no. This makes me so sad. How can you forget to feed your cat? Did you see the satirical Craigslist ad where someone was pretending to want to rehome their kids because they were getting a dog?

    I am so glad these kitties have found a new home.

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch November 12, 2014 at 1:44 am

      I have to check out that ad! Sounds awesome! And yes – some people are just terrible. Sometimes the best thing is to get an animal out of its home.
