“Bill Marsh” was found alone and injured on the side of the road by a nice man who worked at the Bill Marsh dealership. Bill Marsh had a ruptured eye from some sort of trauma. He had emergency surgery to remove his eye and our vet realized he is also blind in his “good” eye. Bill is a lucky little guy! He healed up quickly. His foster mom said Bill is full of love and absolutely loves life! He has several ways of compensating for his blindness including bumping into things and then backing up and going another way. He plays, cuddles, purrs, and snuggles up with other cats in his foster home. Bill Marsh is now ready for adoption.
TV9&10 had a poll question in which they asked Northern Michigan which charities are their favorite. The top five answers were: The Salvation Army, Father Fred Traverse City, Angels of Action Big Rapids, Love Inc. and AC PAW!
Cats in cages don't have a lot of things that are "their own" with their own scent. Stretch & Scratch is a great addition to any animal shelter. It keeps cats exercised and entertained, encourages their natural scratching behavior and it's something the cat can claim as their own that doesn't get washed and moved out of their cage every day. It helps gives a cat "ownership" of their cage, which makes them less stressed out. Please consider donating some of these to the Cherryland Humane Society in Traverse City (or any other animal shelter in your area). The cats really enjoy them and you'll be making a lot of kitties very happy. Please click on the photo and it will take you to the website. Your order can be sent directly to the animal shelter of your choice.
