If you have read Rescued, you may recognize the lovely lady! It’s Harriet, one of the cats who tells her story in the book. She lives in Tucson, at the PAWSitively Cats No Kill Shelter, and since we were in town, my human got in touch with the human who helped Harriet write her story and asked if she could meet her.
Harriet lives in the feral and special needs area of PAWSitively Cats because, as you can see, she can’t use her back legs. If you have not read her story, Harriet was a stray cat who was raising kittens when she was attacked by a dog or coyote. She fiercely protected her kittens and was seriously wounded. She was fortunate to wind up at PAWSitively Cats with her kittens. It took a lot of time, effort, and vet bills for Harriet to heal, but she mothered her kittens the whole time. They’ve been adopted and Harriet is now a permanent resident of the rescue. Don’t feel bad about her back legs — she gets around very fast (my human saw!), and she rejected the cart the rescue tried out on her. Harriet is a very happy and very loved girl… and she agreed to do selfies today!
My human had to show her what to do at first.
The first time she tried, she wasn’t quite ready and took it too early.
But it did not take her long to nail it! I think she did a great job, don’t you?
