Meowies Kitty Collection

A few months ago, a long-haired, mangey looking tom cat started hanging out around my barn. He would travel between here and the house across the street. He was shy and warrisome, but would meow to me when I would talk to him. I fed him (well, he helped himself to the cat food to my other barn cats) and we carried on like that for several weeks. I once accidentally caught him in a trap I set up for a possum, but then let him go. A few weeks ago, I went out late one night to walk my dog and he was out by the garage. So, I talked to him as I usually do and he seemed more interested and braver than usual. I put the dog back in the house and came back out to talk with him some more. He let me pet him. He was more than mangey that I could have ever imagined. His entire coat, all the way to the base of his skin was entirely matted and filled with burdock burrs. I knew that when the good weather rolled around, I would have to try to shave him because we was obviously in a lot of discomfort and super itchy. I also warned him that I would neuter him (kiss those jewels goodbye, buddy!). Fast forward to a little less than two weeks ago and I notice he has a closed and weepy eye. Everyday it seemed to worsen and I felt like I really needed to help him. I called my vet to ask if I could trap him, and if could I bring him over and they would just keep him and look at him when they had a moment. They said yes. I managed to get him that same day and took him over.

Well, I am now in the process of incurring quite a significant vet bill for a cat that I am going to release back outside (we have a dozen in the house and another dozen in the barn, so we have no vacancy! I really mean it!) and who will probably thank me by getting hit by a car or just take off for somewhere else! But, I felt compelled to help him. His expenses are really outside of my budget right now, so the proceeds from this collection are going to directly pay his medical and boarding costs. He has been fully shaved, neutered, and his eye, which has a nasty ulcer, has been sewn shut to heal and he has to wear a cone for about 10 days. I absolutely cannot bring him in my house to care for him or I will get too attached and not put him back out (See the Calico story from Winter 2016/2017)! I've already named him, which is a major no-no if you don't want to have teh feelz for an animal.

I've been calling him Thurston. I've written about him and posted pictures on Facebook, too.

I know I could have made this collection without making it a kitty benefit, but I know some of you like to help animals in need, so it gives these perfumes a bit more of a purpose.

If I can find someone to give him a good home, I will, but I haven't had much luck over the years placing cats. Only 3, in 17 years. They usually end up staying here. Just ask my husband. 

On behalf of Thurston, thank you.
