Little Lost Girl

Early one chilly September morning in 2010 I heard what sounded like a kitten crying while I was getting out of the car at the local YMCA. When I heard it again I followed the sound to a pickup in the parking lot. A small gray kitten came out from behind the right rear tire, ran right to me when I spoke to her, and snuggled against me when I picked her up.

My Cat Is A Prolific Typist

I am a retired film editor, and being retired means I have to fill my time. I do so with a lot of hobbies. Among my many hobbies, I am a writer. But I have cat, a beautiful Tortie named Scout who has little patience for my sitting at the computer.

Mama Macy Needs Life-Saving Surgery

Macy came into Humane Society of Tampa Bay's care when she was transferred from a low resource/high risk agency in Louisiana. The group shared that Macy may have a broken leg. Once Macy was in Tampa Bay's care, however, they realized her health was in worse shape. Poor Macy has a bullet in her right hip, and a shattered left hip from an old injury. Even more troubling, this sweet pup was pregnant, and because of all her health issues, required a C‐section. Sadly, she also has otitis externa (inflammation) in both ears. Macy will need a rear leg amputation due to her shattered pelvis.

You can help. Just $25 goes far toward Macy’s surgery and recovery costs.
