Just a quick story about one of our feline guests, Suzy, and how a little love and kindness gave her a new lease on life:
A special Christmas wish from Suzy to Santa.
I have a special wish this year that I was hoping you could fill....I know it might be a tough one but please if you could only try......I want to have a home to call my own again.
You see, I came to the Sanctuary when my owner died in the winter of 2013. She was sick for a while and couldn't care for me much in the end-so she sent me outside where I had to fend for myself for some time. When she passed away it was winter and getting cold out- things were getting tough, but eventually some kind people came and trapped me in a cage and brought me to the Sanctuary.....well....I really wasn't very nice at first.
They took a little video of me when I wasn't so nice but really, I was just very scared at the time and didn't know what was going on.
Now I've had a while to adjust and I've been working real hard at changing and trying to be a good kitty and everyone says I'm real sweet and lovable now. I even have a new video to show how hard I have worked and how far I have come.
So please Santa, if you know someone who is wishing for a cat this Christmas then maybe you could work something out for the both of us-because I'm really ready to leave here and move on to a home I can call my own.
Please ....just take a chance on me. Love, Suzy
Santa, if you are out there listening: Suzy is a sweet, lovable lap kitty who loves to snuggle. She is almost 6 years old and prefers to be a only kitty. She had a rough transition when she came to the Sanctuary and was very fearful. She really loves people and feels comfort when she is around people that she trusts - She's been at the Sanctuary nearly seven months now and is ready to give her gift of love and companionship this Christmas!
