Update on Eddie
17 Jun 2012
Dear Katrin, Jen, and everyone else at Animalkind.....
Just wanted to update you on Eddie's first day and night at his new home. He was fine and relaxed on the car ride home. He immediately came out of the carrier and began to explore the first floor. He has already mastered it. I believe he is a genius! He knows where his dish is and hasn't missed the litter box.
I didn't want to overwhelm him with stairs yet, so last night I slept on the couch with him so he wasn't alone on his first night. He's such a snuggler! This morning I got him to play around with a catnip toy which he likes. My cat, Mr Hooper, is very jealous and hisses at Eddie but that's to be expected and Eddie pays him no mind.
I just wanted to thank all of you for saving his life and for letting me
adopt him. I believe God kept him alive so you could save him and I could
find him through you and give him his forever home. It was love at first
sight for me! He is settling in nicely and my family is crazy about him too.
I will send pictures soon and keep you posted on his progress. I know you
all love him as much as I do! Your time and effort, and the love and care
you give to all these animals is so wonderful.
Thank you for all you do. May God bless every single one of you
Melissa Krakat and "Eddie"
NOTE from Animalkind: Eddie came to Animalkind as a rescue from a kill shelter in NYC. He is blind, and from all observations and accounts, has been so for quite some time. Before being taken to the kill shelter, Eddie was found in an alley in NYC. We have no idea whatsoever how he was able to survive on his own without vision, bt he is strong and relates wonderfully to humans. Animalkind has had many successes with blind cats who find their way to the litter, food tray and navigate around the house on their own and make close friends with "sighted" cats.
