Five Stories of Cat Rescue Instigated by Kindly and Concerned People



WHITEY and THE ELDERLY LADY


I drove past your home today


I'd heard that you had gone away


To greener pastures, so they say


A 'for sale' sign is on display


But, I will not forget the day

When faced with a choice...a life to save


You stepped right up in a loving way


Dialed my number and asked, "...if I may...


Ask your assistance, oh please, I pray...


Help me save this sweet, sweet babe.


A frightened cat without a friend


And I've tried so hard to bring him in


But its proven to difficult for my shaking hand


Will you help? Will you do what you can?"


Of course, I did.


And, as it works out, you will soon see


That Whitey was a very special kitty


His mother was found several years before


Her story follows; please read more…….



LITTLE ONE


I walked past the home...the house where you lay


On a searing, burning hot August day


Helpless, hapless, and weak; your fate


Permanently sealed; I thought: “… too late."


As I viewed your limp body on the side


Of an overgrown lawn, in tall blades did you hide


From the torment and torture of our disregard


In an ugly, abandoned, threatening yard


Where no one cared enough to see


The tiny, suffering one just at their knee


Though you cried the most delicate, soft plea


To someone, anyone; "please, please save me."


I didn't expect to find you there


This wasn't why I ventured near


For, you see, I sought another one


Whose life, like yours, was almost done


As I called and searched for that old soul


I heard the most pitiful, beseeching ‘meow’


The best you could muster in such a depleted state


And, yes, it was not yet, your fate


To leave this place of doubtful future


No, I was led there to aide; to nurture


And bring you, Little One, back to health


My little companion; a world of wealth


It has been twelve years since then


And, here you are, my lifelong friend


A kitten, still...a new life which bagan


When I lifted you into loving hands.


SANDY AND THE KIND NEIGHBOR


Although we had not spoken a year or more


You took a chance and approached my door


A special request, you did implore….


“Please take this small, pathetic one


For, I cannot call her mine,


She is in need of home and safety


And, I’m so sorry; but it cannot be me


Oh, I hope you’ll consider taking her in


Being born in this world her only sin


Though we have not been the best of friends,


I beg of you, a helping hand to lend…


And, through this act; we’ll begin


To smile once more as we make amends.”



I took the small bundle from his outreached hand


As I gave a hug to that sweet man


A neighbor with a heart of gold


A sensitive soul, a story untold


Of many acts in quiet love


A gentleman guided from above


Through a sensitive and an empathetic way


He acted to save the little kitten, that day


Now, in my life, a man so dear


Brought together by a path quite clear


And Sandy Cat, oh, she’s doing well


And, for me, her human, ‘that’s just swell!’



CUTIE PIE and THE VISITOR


My phone rang on a cold winter’s night


An unfamiliar voice asking if I might


Have a moment to hear of the plight


Of a tiny black kitten, thrown out of sight.


“I see you’ve just lost your beautiful boy


Little Stevie; who gave you so much joy


He hasn’t been seen in a week or so


Believe me when I say ‘I know’


How it feels to lose one so dear


And how this brings many a tear


I wish you well and the best of luck


To bring your beloved Stevie back.”


I listened as she continued on;


“I’m here on holiday and, will soon be gone


I’ve found a thrown away, sickly cat


A kitten, really; can you imagine that?


But I must leave; I’ll soon depart


I saw your ads which quickened my heart,


'Oh, I hope this saddened, sorrowful soul


Will see the need of this one, so small'


And so, you see, I made this call,


A last ditch effort … giving it my all


No pride, no reward, no; not even maybe


Just a sincere prayer


That you’ll adopt this baby."


When we were through and said “goodbye,”


I couldn’t help but silently cry


How could someone have been so cruel?


A selfish hateful, empty fool.


Plans were made to meet that night


I fell in love at the very first sight


Of a tiny black kitten, with a tiny moan


I held her close all the way home.


Now, because of the love of the kind visitor


Cutie Pie thanks me with the loudest purr


A chubby, healthy, happy cat


These 10 years hence…


How about that?!



PINKY at THE VETERINARIANS' OFFICE


I visited “Max” near the cage where you lay


For all the staff there, it was a sad day


For they could not tell what was wrong with you


And, so, it seemed; your life was through


In a deep deep coma, throughout each day


No desire to awake, no wish to play


A beautiful young kitten, so sick, so ill


Controlled by an illness and not your own will


I asked of your health, your home and family


I was told of a certain, unchanging reality;


They choose to abandon you, to leave you there


They chose as if they didn’t care


No more thought given to heal your wound


No, they choose to leave you alone in that room


“What of this little one, who quietly lies here?”


I asked, though I knew…my greatest fear


The helpless young cat had no one to care


With a tear in my eye, I departed from there


Five miles away, I abruptly stopped


“I must do something…at any cost”


That moment of decision, emotion stirred


I rushed back there with an encouraging word


“Let me adopt this sweet soul, whom I’ve never held


Let’s do what we must, to make him well.”


A few calls were made in hurry and haste


For there was precious little time to waste


In rapid succession, using unworldly will


We delivered the kitten in my arms, so still


Sixty miles we sped, and not a moment lost


To capable hands who would do their best.


A long story short, melancholy and sweet


Our little Pinky was brought home to meet


A host of kitties, in particular “Little One”


Who nurtured and treated him just like her son


She cared for little Pinky during his short, sweet days


Her love for little Pinky did truly amaze.


Well, he stayed with us for 8 happy months


Before leaving this world; he was loved so much


To this day, I think often of my little sick boy


All the laughter, fear, anticipation and joy


We knew the outcome and his unchangable fate


I’m just glad that we were not too late


To give little Pinky a wonderful time


Before exiting this earth, to a new life sublime.


There are so many more of these stories…perhaps I’ll share more in days to come…thank you for reading about my real life cat tales.


Bless all those wonderful people who give of themselves in so many incredible ways for the safety, love and appreciation of animals.


A return to the life that I once lived


Where beauty surrounds

A lovely Hub, I wish I could once again raise a kitten, but I no longer live in my own home. I enjoyed your description of so many kitties, and it brought back many memories. Thank you and be happy!

Hello Diogenes, Hyphenbird,and joanveronica. Thank you for such kind comments and for sharing your own memories and current lives. I have to say that the amazing individuals, all from completely different walks of life and during different times, made the loving effort which resulted in saving a life. For each, it was beyond typical....the elderly lady whose health and condition prevented her from doing what she wanted to help Whitey, the neighbor w/whom I had had a "falling out" of sorts, who put that aside to save Sandy, the visitor from Germany with such a short time remaining in the States, but who tried w/all her might to find help for the kitten. Little One was "owned" (not my term) by a terribly neglectful family who lived in the house w/the overgrown yard. LO was there, perishing in the extreme heat...dehydrated, skin and bones and so weak she could hardly lift her head ("I was so much Older then I'm younger than that now" - hub). I was looking for (and later found) an old white cat who needed help...we were able to help him several days later)...and last, but not least; my Veterinarians and staff who could not euthanize Pinky at the appointed hour...(they were waiting for something to happen ... anything that might change the course of events)...and, my cat Max was there and the rest is history.

Many thanks and much regards to you!! Kathy

Nice poem. A lot of bad things sure happen to cats in this world. Cats sure are vunerable to the conditions of life that are not good. The world is scary when so many awful things happen. I still have two cats and they are doing okay so far. I keep them in the house, because of the dangers outdoors. Nice pictures of the cats.

Such a beautiful cascade of poetry for each furry one! Each telling it's own harrowing tale. It's takes a normal person to feel sorrow and compassion for these little ones. It takes a Lucky Cat to stand up and take action to rescue them all. Lovely...

It is so good to see you Kath, and that you are still up to your lucky cats deeds! You are truly the cat angel that I know and love - I don't think it ever goes away, I have had a "thing" for cats, like you, since I can remember - which is why I enjoy reading about your kitty tales so much. You inspire me and I enjoy hearing about each and every rescue. My Waterford rescues are all doing fine now - I really miss them! Take care for now, rated up awesome, beautiful, useful & interesting!

hi Teylina! so happy to see you! I noticed that you've written a hub and I have to find it..coming to your site soon. thank you so much for visiting and, boy, do I miss everyone, too. Must catch up.

Hi my dear Kathy...my sister in cat rescue! I'm so glad to hear that your Waterford little ones are doing well. That was a gracious and unselfish thing you did to be sure that they would have a good life! It's good to be back here a little more...boy, these last 4 months have been very busy and now things are evening out. I must make every effort to catch up w/your wonderful world. Kathy

Ruth, as always, it is fabulous and wonderful to see your comments. I know yours is a heart of gold

Alicia and Catgypsy, I just KNOW, from reading your work and comments, that you are sensitive and caring and because of this, your comments are highly prized and valued. Thank you so much for visiting and leaving such nice words.

To ALL: I really did (and do) drive past the sweet older lady's house, and I really did (and do)walk past Little One's former house...it is a total, horrific mess (even 5 + years later since I left and now returned)...and I am amazed that they learned nothing after LO's almost demise...because, believe me, I lectured and chastized!!

Telling these stories in the form of rhyming poems is how the words initially came to me as I passed these places of the past....so, I thought it would be a good way to share the history of my dear kitty companions.

thank you EVERYONE who cares enough to care!!! :)

Lucky Cats, I haven't the faintest idea what to say to you; I did not before, I do not now. You are an amazingly talented and sensitive woman who shares the same love of God's creatures with me.

I know some folks have berated me for my adoration of all animals, which confused me at the time; why would they be so callous? Why treat animals as 'things' when in fact they do indeed have souls? Their eyes tell me that in no uncertain terms. Every animal on this earth deserves your love-our love-the love of all humanity, and what they too often receive is rejection and unimaginable cruelty.

Humankind is disgusting to me in this respect and I cannot believe some of the things I have read and heard. I think you have spoken my heart...no, I know this.

Thank you, too.

I'm signed out right now, but wanted to tell you that I feel extremely proud of this Hub, after feeling frightened at your glowing words. I hope you understand;

I think that I have a case of 'fear of success', LC, and your comment really threw me! ;)

But thanks a-honestly-million for writing to me on this piece.

Lorlie...you've said it perfectly and I am in total agreement ... lots of education is necessary as well as helping people see and appreciate the beauty, value and wonderful companionship of animals...whether they are domestic or wild. They are our earthly companions / co-inhabitants. I've ALWAYS respected and enjoyed your writing, Lorlie...totally amazing! Thank you for such a nice comment

Laurel Rogers; I am not quite sure of what you speak but, if encouraging words help and aid in prompting writers to continue to produce...then I am very happy to do this. Thank you for your visit and comment.

What a wonderful hub! You have brought a tear to my eye! I too love animals. I once went into my neighbors house,(without anyone home) and took a kitten which one of the little children had told me was sick but her mom wouldn't take it to the vet. When I picked it up it was cold, but still alive. I rushed it to the vet, but he said it was too late, it was probably going to die. He took the little kitty and kept it on a hot water bottle in his desk drawer trying to save it. (His nurse told me about it later.) The kitty did not make it but he and I did all we could. I loved your hub! You are obviously an awesome person. Voted up and beautiful! Have a wonderful day! :)

Lucky Cats 4 years ago from The beautiful Napa Valley, California Author

Hi sgbrown! I'm so sorry to hear that the little kitten didn't survive but, you tried and the little thing was not alone when the end came so, this, in itself, is a blessing. thank you for your kind words and kind & loving heart. Yes, I love animals and I am a cat lady personified! Thank you so much for leaving such a heart warming comment. We who care about animals must support oneanother..it's a tough issue...and I'm so glad you had the fortitude to do what you did for the little kitten..I would (and have) definitely done the same thing.

.....well beauty always surrounds everything you say or do Kathy and your most wonderful labor of love here will be shared with glorious enthusiasm to our fb music/cinema group - my legacy as you well know (being a single man with no family) will be giving my two best friends, Little Miss Tiffy and Mister Gabriel a good life as they both get out all day long and receive room service outside if you please and come in at night and are loved so much by their big daddy - so in that sense you and I Kathy are soulmates.

And you just happen to be one of the best writers I've ever had the pleasure of reading at the Hub and speaking of whom - please send a shout out to our mutual friend Amy as her Mac Man is going through a very tough time right now - sending you warm wishes and good energy from lake erie time canada 3:49pm

Hi Colin,...thank you so much for this wonderfully worded comment; I am forever appreciative of you and your kindness. I plan to leave all my holdings (meager though they may end up to be as the expense of my furry friends continues to escalate!!!)....to my animals...my friend, who is an Attorney specializing in estate planning, is also a woman who plans to leave her estate to her animals) and her "side" practice is specifically this: setting up trusts / wills which benefit companion animals. I am speaking w/Amy about Mac and life, in general. She is a fabulously talented writer, artist and true friend...we have become close friends so, rest easy in knowing that she has me, as well as you and others, in her corner. Have a wonderfully warm day, Colin and; give Miss Tiffy and Master Gabriel a big hug for me. Your friend, Kathy

I am in awe of how beautifully you've written this poem, you've managed to get across all the feelings and emotions of what you felt and went through when rescuing each kitten. You have a generous soul and a loving heart, and these cats were probably the luckiest cats on earth! This is a lovely story - it's so good to come across these, they're so few and far between. Thanks for sharing your story with us! Voted up, beautiful, interesting and awesome!! :)


Lucky Cats profile image

Lucky Cats 4 years ago from The beautiful Napa Valley, California Author

Hi Melchi...Yes, these are true stories...and I hope to write more when time allows. Little Stevie (the visitor referred; "I see you've lost your beautiful boy...") was one of my cats who disappeared one day. We searched for weeks...literally WEEKS. I missed work a few days, hiked for miles and called/posted/advertised/all things/vehicles available; to find him.. I finally had my answer about what happened to him; almost a month later. The Visitor saw one of my ads and decided to try...I'm glad she did. Yes, I love animals and value them and see them as our equals..they are deserving of the right to life; the right to live as nature intended and the right to be protected from our abuse - on all levels. This is my mission and I'll stay with it to the end. This is why I so LOVE your recent hub..."Animals Near Extinction - Abused and Neglected..Let's Be Their Voice!" so very much. Thank you!!!

Guess I'm blind -- still can't find Yellow Guy on here and have checked photos/names carefully. But don't look him up for me. I WILL find him--that close-up is imbedded in my brain as is one I have of Gator sitting in the mist at the bayou loft. Gotta get photos on--I love them so much!

Teylina profile image

Teylina 4 years ago

YEAH! THANKS SO MUCH for taking the time to get this photo on here. There's something about him and this particular close-up that is so real to me. Not always easy to get just the right shot at the right time. I've always had to find my camera, by which time Gator's moved on. The intensity in Yellow Guy's eyes, the angle--all are perfect. So thanks for going to all that trouble just for me. Have a feeling it will be framed with both your and Al's names with him for my "animal wall" (have a "men wall" too) so yes, certifiably nuts--but this photo is truly special. Thanks! Al is truly a great photographer.

Hi Eiddwen; you know; these are all true stories. I see the neighbor who asked if I could take "sandy cat" everyday, and the woman who loved "Whitey" has, since, passed away. I am not back in Ca. and so I am going to my Veterinarians who had "Pinky" in their hospital when his "owners" abandoned him. The German visitor left and I have not had contact w/her....and Little One is with me and in my arms every night. Thank you, my friend. Kathy
