Motzie sharing his love with Bonnie a handicapped woman in Florida.
I had purchased a cat only by sight and he was to arrive at Logan Airport, Massachusetts. It was a Savannah, a feline with grace, intelligence and poise with people. You could see it in the picture that I picked him from. At the time his name was Deo and the more I looked at the picture I came up with a Hebrew name for him that was Matanah Me Al, better known as Motzie. His name means in Hebrew "Gift from Above," and he was.
I drove 4 hours to Logan Airport and waited for his plane to arrive. I was excited and couldn't wait to see, meet and hold my new boy. A van backed into the garage and they began unloading animals. This woman got called and got her cat, a couple got their parrot, another couple got a Savannah kitten (adorable), but where was my new boy?
Then they call my name and they open a door and a "HUGE" carrier came out, I asked if this is mine, they said yes. Pretty much I think my expression was like "holy crap!" I could hardly carry this carrier out the door and I wanted to see my boy, guess the others did too. I opened the door and coaxed him out and he was as I thought beautiful, perfect and I cried and hugged his mass of muscle.
For four wonderful years we lived life to it's fullest. We took walks, went to shows, traveled together he was my buddy, my best friend my emotional support. There wasn't anything Motzie would not do for me and I shared him with the world. I always said the Motzie is A1Savannahs, I own him but he also belongs to the people. To not share a loving giving animal like Motzie would me basically be me not doing a "good deed" in my Jewish faith.
We have been separated for a while so I can pay fines and move to have my boys back again. But once again he is the product of A1Savannahs under their protective watch. The best people in the world and the only people I trust with my boys.
