Mancat Monday with Chance

Guess what! Today is Chance Bond's one year "Rescueversary!" This is the day that the neighbors showed up with a skinny, scared, injured kitten they found under the hood of their car (see Chance's story here and here).





She took Chance to the emergency VET (it was 8:30pm on a Saturday night) and he was a dream the whole time. Even tho he had to be scared and in so much pain, he snuggled and purred and "made cute" all over the place. The VET techs couldn't even hear his heartbeat because he was purring so loud!



All the manipulating they did to get X-Rays and check his tail (broken) and pelvis (fractured) and the little guy kept purring and snuggling and nuzzling everyone in the office. He had to have been in pain, but you'd have never known it.



With my FIV and personality "quarks" the VET doesn't think that I would be a good sibling so mommy put out a call for help and you all responded! Luckily, your purrs and prayers brought Nellie to our blog. She had just lost her beloved kitty and felt her home needed another cat and Shadow needed a furry friend.



On Dec. 1, we met Nellie halfway at The Washington Area Humane Society just outside of Pittsburg, PA - approx 4 hours for each of us - who were kind enough to let them do the exchange there. They had a little play area with toys and a litterbox all set up so he could get out and stretch.



When Nellie put Chance in his PTU, she put him in the back seat and buckled him in. Mommy knew at that moment that she would be the best mommy to him and was so happy. She did cry as he drove away, both happy he was going to a wonderful forever home, and sad cause she would miss him bunches.



We are so glad that a person as wonderful as Nellie took him in. Not only is she a sweet person and a perfect mommy, but she even helps Chance blog so we can follow him as he grows and plays and can see how happy he is.
