I think of you and Joa's Arc often and wanted to send you an update on our Maizey who we adopted from you in December of 2011. In short, she is fantastic!
The first few months we had her, she really struggled in the litterbox. A fierce case of giardia that gave her loose stool for months and constantly falling in it, lead to frequent bathing — which as I'm sure you can imagine, she hated! (So did we!) She also wasn't really that keen on being held or loved on. We kind of forced our love on her and she would put up with it, kind of huffing her way through it like an embarrassed teenager. (Which was kind of adorable.)
It is also because of you and because of welcoming Maizey into our family that we began fostering. We've fostered and placed 7 CH and/or visually or mobility impaired cats since November of 2012, and done short term fostering or transit of many others.
So THANK YOU for giving our Maizey such a good start in life, and thank you for the wonderful work that Joa's Arc continues to do!
Thank you to Maizey's family for taking her in, loving her and being inspired to help special animals like her. It is emails like this that make our hearts swell and reminds us that every effort we do for special needs animals is so worth it!
