Do You Donate?
This is Champs or as I like to refer to him...Champers! When he first showed up at our house obviously abandoned, we couldn't tell if he was a boy or a girl cat because he wouldn't let anyone near him. He did develop a knack for showing up for meals on time though. Then he would hide again.
As he started to get braver, he would climb on the porch for small periods of time, but before you knew it, he was gone again!
It took time and patience, but now he is much more trusting. He's still a big fraidy-cat and loud noises tend to send him scurrying from sight. I believe there are some bad memories hidden away that come out to plague him from time to time for he will find a dark corner to hide sometimes.
These days Champs is doing great! This is a recently picture of him napping on the diagonal counter that separates the dining area from the living room. It's become his favorite spot!
Cats are wonderful, loving creatures if you just give them a chance. It's too bad that many are abandoned when they get too big or inconvenient to have around.
Every time I go to PetSmart, I make a point of donating a dollar to help the PetSmart charities when going through the checkout line. Can you imagine how many cats and dogs could be helped if everyone donated just one dollar?
