Jessy's start of a Happy Ending? Miracles happen at Animalkind! - 12 May 2009

Jessy's start of a Happy Ending? Miracles happen at Animalkind!

We were asked by a kill shelter if we can help Jessy. Jessy is a blind cat that was abandoned at the shelter and had no chance to be adopted and was on the list to be "put down".

We immediately agreed to give Jessy a second chance. When she arrived at Animalkind, she surprised all of us with her loving "cattitude" , but we also noticed she is deaf as well.

Sweet Jessy has only her nose and body as senses for the world around her. She uses the litterbox and greets every touch with a big purr and rub of her head.

Jessy is a happy kitty-happy in her world-but she needs a compassionate human who will give her attention and love what she craves so much.


UPDATE - 13 May 2009

A miracle happened: Jessy's and our prayers were answered: In spite of Jessy's blindness and deafness, an angel opened her heart and home to this sweet kitty!

Below: Jessy meets her new friend and is living now in an adoring home, never alone and never without touch and love.

My new Mom and me...

Wait a minute! This smell....wow, what can it be?

Yes....it's a CATNIPPP mouse!!

I really LOVE it here

LOVE IT! My gratitude and BIG Purrs to all that made this miracle happen.

Jessy in a safe outdoor enclosure, enjoying the feel of the grass and the wind on her whiskers...  She smells the sweet summer breeze.....

In the Grass

Smelling the breeze
Although deaf and blind, she knows a pal is nearby.....

A new playmate


Jessy senses another possible companion is in the area....
