Foster Friday Guest Post By My Brown Newfies

Have you ever seen that E-Trade commercial with the baby that is talking and has a cat next to him and the cat sneezes and the baby says, "Bless you Peppers."
It's hilarious and this has become a common saying in our house when anyone sneezes.

Even if Leroy sneezes...we say "Bless you Peppers."
Again...it's hilarious but you probably have to live in our house to find it as amusing as we do.

Anyway...............

A few weeks ago we had a box left at the back door of the vet clinic where I work.

Inside the box was a cat.
with a note that said,

"This is Peppers, she has fleas and I can not afford to care for her."

Uggggggggggggh.

It's is never a good feeling when we see a box at our back door, you never know what you may find inside.

In Pepper's case, we had an older cat that was severely infested with fleas.

Now you can look at this and say, "What in the world is the matter with people? How can someone do this?"

Or you can say,

"Well at least the person realized they could not care for her and brought her somewhere that could." or "Maybe they tried to treat her for fleas, but their attempts failed." or "It must have broke their hearts to give her away, but they did it because they loved her"

At least they did not just let her suffer or leave her outside somewhere to die.

That's the way you need to think about it.

Try to find the good in these situations in hopes that people are better than what you really want to think.

Regardless, Peppers is safe now and has been treated for fleas and is recovering nicely.

She is one of the sweetest cats that I have met.

So sweet that it was difficult for me to get a good picture of her because all she wanted to do was nuzzle up to my leg.

She is estimated at around 12 years of age and has no apparent health issues except for anemia caused by the fleas, which should resolve shortly.

We have a full house at the vet clinic with hospital cats that reside there, so we are unable to keep her.
If you know of anyone who may be interested in adopting her, please feel free to contact me.

Jen from My Brown Newfies, wanted me to let you know that she lives in Strongsville, Ohio which is about 30 minutes south of Cleveland and about 30 minutes north of Akron, Ohio.

Thanks to Jen for sharing her story of Peppers with us along with her observations about animal abandonment.  There really is a story behind every stray.

Peppers looks so sweet. Our vet is always getting these "packages" left at his office too....always after hours.

Bless you for taking care of an abandoned cat! I don't think much of people who dump their problems and responsibilities on somebody else. That person shouldn't have said "I can't afford...", he/she should've scratched head and say "How can I afford...".

Hi Y'all,

Off and on we've had cats that looked like Peppers. Around the farm they are considered "money cats" and, therefore, "good luck". We usually named them Money or, if we had more than one at the same time, the other would be Lucky.

Pass the info on and maybe it will help with the adoption!

Poor sweetie. I am so glad she is okay. Still, no excuse for leaving her in a box. Take her in, she WAS your responsibility hooman!

Kitcaboodles said...

I suppose that is a good way to look at it, although anyone leaving any living thing in a box still makes me cross. Hope Peppers finds a loving home soon, she looks a proper sweety =^..^=

Mr. Pip said...

Pepper is beautiful. Thank goodness she is safe. My paws are crossed she finds a home soon.

Your pal, Pip
