This morning, my fiancee Liz went to the local Petco and picked up a new brush to use on the boys. The old brush is metal and this one has softer bristles so we're hoping the boys like their grooming better.
While she was at the Petco, she saw that the local cat rescue group was there as always, and she gave them a small donation on behalf of Arthur and Beowulf.
There are so many wonderful rescues and no-kill shelters out there and they all deserve help, but we haven't heard of a chairty that provides free or low cost veterinary care for low-income cat parents. You may recall that we took Arthur to an emergency vet back in December and we were saddened when we met a woman in the waiting room who almost had to let her cat die because of the incredibly high cost of the surgery her cat needed.
Liz's idea: start a charity to help people who can't afford it pay for feline medical care. I don't have the time or energy to start such a charity now, but I think it's a good idea. Is anyone doing something like this currently?
