A few of you were interested in Rooney's rescue "tail", so i will give you the SUPER short version. I tried to write the full version, but it is just too long, complicated and painful.
Rooney lived with a cat hoarder who moved away and left 15+ cats locked in his warehouse. I happened upon this awful situation and sought help for months to no avail. We broke the lock on the door and fed the cats who were living in horror and unbelievable filth. To make matters worse, the building was being torn down. Literally in the midst of the demolition, we trapped Rooney mid air as the walls fell around us. We trapped 2 other cats as well. The whole situation went from September to December and almost caused me to have a nervous breakdown! The visions and memories of all of it still haunt me. BUT, thankfully Rooney is safe and sound and will be loved to pieces for the rest of his life!!!! Despite everything he went through, he is the happiest, most wonderful boy EVER. His resilience is an inspiration to me. He has moved on and lives each day with joy and pure kitty bliss.
Here is where he came from.....
and look at him now!!! He always loves and helps care for our rescued foster kittens.
