Rescued by Rescuers

This beautiful girl is PK.



Cold, hungry and in need of help, this smart kitty turned up at the door of a group of professional "rescuers" and asked for help. She got it.

First she was fed. But her rescuers couldn't allow her in their building without getting into trouble and perhaps losing their jobs, so they tried to find her a home among themselves. Only no one was able to adopt her. One doesn't like cats, one has allergies, one already has a few animals and can't take in another .... So they made her a bed where she could be comfortable and protected from the weather.

Then they discovered she had an infected wound on her abdomen. She needed to go to the vet, but who was going to pay for her medical? "There are enough of us here to chip in to pay the bill," one suggested. Off to the vet she went with two of her rescuers.

The cat needed a name and one rescuer suggested PK, short for (sorry, we can't tell you or we'll give away her rescuers and get them in trouble.)

"She's also pregnant," the vet announced. "But she's not too far along, so we can spay her while we're treating her wound."

The two rescuers agreed. "We hope it won't cost too much," they said. "We're going to chip in to pay the bill."

"Well," the vet declared, " you help so many people, so we're going to help you."

So now, thanks to her rescuers and a kind, generous vet, PK is spayed and healing well. Jan says PK is sweet and friendly. And very pretty.

In this day, when there is so much abuse in the news, it is refreshing that a group of professional rescuers rescued a stray kitty. And at a time when some vets have been known to hold an animal for ransom till the vet bill is paid in full that a vet has donated Miss PK's medical care.

  4. Hey Guys,
    WOW! What a refreshing change of pace. No animal got shot or set on fire. A poor sick kitty got fed and treated. Now that she''s spayed she'll have a better chance of finding that furever home that we are all looking for when we're homeless. We have ours and we hope that she ssoon find her. Please tell the rescuers we appreciate their efforts and if possible, give a big special thank you to the veterinarian; he's a big hero in our book. tell him he gets 9 slobbery slurpy kisses and 3 sandpaper licks.

  21. Just an update on PK....our department secretary took PK home with her to join the family at their new home in the country. we were afraid that "bamalances" and other traffic would not bode well for her. Plus, some of the guys and gals didn't like her affinity for their cartops. Also, she let us know very quickly that she liked to snooze inside "bamalances" when she found an open window. Our chief said unfortunately patients are sometimes allergic to cats so we had to find her a home. She now has a wonderful open homeplace to enjoy nature and a welcoming loving family to care for her.

    PS...PK is short for ParaKitty
