Burn Victim Finds Kindred Spirit in Cat who Survived Serious Burns — 6 Comments

  1. My cat rarely sleeps in my bed with me, and never by herself. We do have a little ritual that I started, and she responds to. If she’s meowing to get out, I lay down on my bed, on my back, and call her up. Sometimes it takes a few minutes, but then she jumps up on my chest. Sometimes, it’s only for a few minutes, but other times, like yesterday afternoon, we both ended up falling asleep for about an hour. I treasure this special time with her, and it’s a great diversion from meowing to go out. Other times I distract her with interactive play, or just some lap time, after telling her softly “no, no, no.”

  2. I felt the same way about Sealy. When I saw his photo on the Greenville shelter Facebook page I contacted them immediately and told them I’d come get him in a few days. You should have seen him when he first went into the cage we bought him to keep him from injuring his ear further.The fan blade had cut in all the way to his skull, taking his left ear with it. At first he’d wait at the back of his cage when we put food in it for him. Then he’d slowly come to the front and eat every bite. He was 5 pounds when we adopted him and he’s around 9 pounds four years later. His anniversary will be February 24. He runs his own Facebook page where there are hundreds of photos of him with his cat friends. A lot of those cats have gone on to new homes, with Oozy being the latest to be adopted out.

    Sealy has turned into a lap kitty. I never thought that would happen. The Greenville shelter has a different vet there now. I feel sure if he’d been injured and taken there at this point in time he’d have been killed.
