I couldn't leave Tommy and Gina (featured in the video) out in the cold alone and sick (they're a LOT better in the video), and even though Wild Blue was stretched thin on financial resources, they provided for the medical attention these two needed to get their paws on firm ground and eventually found them a permanent foster.
Gina is thriving despite an early age concern about delayed development of her motorskills, but Tommy ( the orange one with the broken tail) is having some heart trouble. Wild Blue is paying for the series of diagnosis visits, too, and cardiograms are not cheap.
Wild Blue gave, and continues to give, these kittens the opportunity to become someone's soul companion someday.
The Cat-People Connection. It's something Lauri Cross, the executive director of Wild Blue, talked about at a leadership meeting: WBARS isn't just about cats but the people, too, from the employees to its fosters to its volunteers.
As a staunch believer in the power of cats to provide independent, non-judgemental companionship for those who have enough to handle without adding constant hands-on pet care, I needed to hear that Wild Blue recognized this power, too.
I feel like I've found a home, and it's a home that's actually inspiring me, an introverted people-phobe, to reach out, jumping up and down, screaming about how amazing this organization is and the things it does.
Even if you don't like cats, share or donate because you believe in the power of people, because some people are powered by their cats, whether they're powered to change the world or powered to get out of bed every day.
