Socks, do you need to visit the vet after because of your heart murmur?
Oh Yesh, but I only haz a low grade one. Nuffings too serious.
Do you need any additional care or can you run and play like everyone else?
Nopes, I can play, I jus not play as much. I get tired easy. But I iz fine.
What would you like to say to people who are worried about taking in stray cats?
Well, mommy tooks one look at poor little Chance out on the street and herz heart melted. She had to take him in. You should not be afraids to take in a stray or rescued kitty. We haz been through so much, which why we can be so much more loving of a good home. When youse to fight to stay alive, it is scary and sad for us. But when we gets in to a home, it may take us awhile, but we iz more grateful then you know. You see, we never forget where we came from. We came from abuse, neglect and pain. And now we are loved, cherished and cared for. Nos be afraid to help stray kitties. Dey need love too. Mew…………
Chance, how long did it take for you to be a healthy kitten after being found?
Well, the vet wanted to put me to sleep, so to speak, but mommy say no.. she fought really hard and dat first week waz really tough, but after about a month I was running around and acting very much like a kitten. MEW
Anything else you would like to say about your family?
Well, I finks Mommy should answer dat one.. and she says.. family is not what we are, it is who we are. And jus cause we iz kitties, does not mean we are not her children. We iz a happy and loved. We are, simply put, a family. Yesh… we are.
