Inside Looking Out

I was sitting at my desk and I had this feeling of being watched ... I turned around and Wampi was just staring at me looking all sad and lonely. So I left the computer for a long time and just pet him and talked with him. After reading Richard's story (see previous post), I feel so lucky that he got the care he needed in time and that he is here safe with us now. I love Wampi so much. =)

Three more donors overnight -- Thank you Carolyn, James, & Richard!

My heart goes out to you. I can't donate much, but I've been in your predicament before and I understand the heartache of watching your cat suffer.

My husband's parents have a Maine Coon, too, and they're daring and they like rooftops (Maine Coons, not his parents). A couple of years ago, we got word that some neighborhood kids beat the stuffing out of Pepper (his parents' cat) and left him to die. The most damaging injury seemed to come from a kick to the chin: it knocked out several teeth and broke his jaw, slamming it up into his eye socket and somehow also rupturing his eardrum.

Last summer we got to see Pepper after he was all healed up, and although he's deaf and blind on one side, and has to eat mushy food because of the missing teeth, he's still able to go outside and he enjoys the company of His Humans immensely. When I read about Wampi, I thought of Pepper immediately.

How can someone do that to a cat??? Beating up Pepper. Throwing Wampi off a roof. It's just horrifying what some people can do. Maybe these kids don't think what happens next is real? Don't they know they are *hurting* a living creature? Taking life? I don't know. Makes me sick to think of it all. =(

I'm really glad Pepper lived through his ordeal and has a good home.

I'm glad, too. And glad for Wampi.

I guess some people don't realize that pets are people, too. Maybe not human, but they certainly have a place in their family and are loved and needed. I can only hope that one day the person who hurt Wampi or the kids that hurt Pepper fall in love with pets of their own and realize what they did.

Also, I hope you don't mind, but I posted about Wampi on my blog, too.

I love the graphic that you made for Wampi! Thanks for posting that on your page.

Would you mind if I copy the graphic and put it in my sidebar for other people to use if they want?

I have two right now (One I made and another some one else made). I'll put a link to your site next to it. I'm going to make a section called "Webmasters for Wampi" but it'll have to wait until tomorrow ... taking care of the baby tonight.

Sifting through some popular links today, I came across Old Cell Phone, which seems to be a Florida-based company who will send for your old cell phones so that they can be properly recycled. It looks like they'll not only pay you for your phone, but they pay postage, too.
