Rescuing a cat

As you might know, Mel loves cats (though he’d never live with one). And this story really got to his heart when he read this a few months back. Imagine you spotting what appears to be just a lump of rock in the snow while you are driving. And we are talking about it snowing in Russia… pretty cold we think.

And that ‘lump’ rock it was not, but rather a curled up almost lifeless body of a kitten!

Orgh…

You know, for all intents the poor kitten could have simply perished by the roadside. It was incredible that this man stopped and picked her up. But sometimes you have to wonder what was he looking at while driving… Yeah Mel love cats and he photographs them wherever he can find them. We even wrote about them here. And here is an example of cats Mel that captured on ‘film’:

Anyway, fortunately for Nika she is a well taken care cat today. She might have lost part of her tail, but she is alive and well! That’s such a wonderful happy ever after story don’t you think? Do you like cats?

PS: Did you notice something about their ears?

Mel works his day job for a living, but lives for antiquities, history and geography at all other times. He enjoys writing and thought sharing and obviously traveling. Suan is a homey person, who like girlie stuff such as cross stitching etc. Enjoys shopping & modeling for Mel. What a match!

  1. Here, in the USA, there are local programs called TNR for ownerless cats who live outside. It stands for Trap, Neuter, Release. The cat is caught painlessly, taken to a participating veterinarian, who gives it a rabies vaccine and neuters it so that it can’t reproduce anymore. Once it has recovered from the surgery, it is taken back to the exact location where it was caught, and released again. This is because these cats usually have their own “place” in a given neighborhood and often a place within a community of other ownerless cats. We “cat people” usually call them feral cats, feral meaning wild. I’ve participated in canvassing neighborhoods with leaflets and posters to educate folks in how to treat these cats, because some of the people in my neighborhood think they should be shot on sight! Grrr….

    A very cool thing happened when I was at the vet with Sissy, one of my cats, yesterday: I saw that my vet still had two of the feral cat posters I had given him in the last canvas two years ago, posted in their “cat treatment room.” One of them was my favorite. It is about what to do when you find a lost kitten outside! ❤

      1. Hahaha they are so adorable. My husband named first Look because he is very active and he loves to look around. The other boy is very shy and doesn’t care what’s going around so he was named Stop and the girl Listen because she will just look at you and listens. Basically there name was based on their personality. 🙂
