This was the first picture my Human ever saw of me on the interwebs when I was about 5 months old. She found me at Happy Cat Sanctuary (a rescue group for abandoned and stray cats run by volunteers who trap, neuter/spay, release feral cats and provide long-term care and feeding).
I was found outside with my sister (who was named Dellilah by the rescue) when we were 2 months old.
The rescue has a Sanctuary that houses shy kitties. My sister still lives at the Sanctuary as she is still deemed a shy cat. This is how she is described in her profile:
Type:DSH white and grey
Special Status:Shy Cat
Date of Birth:July, 2006
Dellilah is a very chubby, soft and gentle little girl who purrs as soon as you pet her. She has come a long way from when we rescued her as a feral kitten. She has always been very quiet and sweet. She has a little spot of black on the tip of her nose. Delilah has tried a new home but is far too shy and timid, at this time she is a permanent resident at the sanctuary. Who knows, maybe down the road we can find her a trusting and understanding owner, but for now she is safe and happy with her feline friends.
We think about her all the time and feel sad that she doesn't live with us or have a special forever home where she is loved and cherished. But we are very thankful that she is safe inside with food and shelter and other kitties she likes and the few Human volunteers she trusts. You can go take a peek at who Dellilah lives with here.
We are very thankful for the rescue Happy Cat Sanctuary and all the work they do to help stray, abandoned and feral kitties.
Today on National Feral Cat Day we think about my sister Dellilah and dedicate this post to her.
