Right now I have an all white persian cat who is deaf, a red eared slider turtle, two adult crested geckos and 4 babies. All were rescues except for
The cat was found out in the woods and around the dumpster where we used to work. It would eat whatever food people would leave out for it. It was
terrified and hissing and growling like a wildcat. We took it to the vets and found it had a bad ear infection and fleas. I had two other cats at the
time and wanted to find her home but we ended up keeping her and my other two being elderly had passed away.
She is now the sweetest and most gentle little loving cat. I had spent a lot of time just lying beside her, not trying to pet her or anything just so
she could get used to me and not freak out. With her being deaf, I would flick lights before entering so she would be aware I was entering the room.
One day I heard her purring and tried to pet her and she still purred away. I knew her darkest hours were behind her and she could finally trust
someone and be happy.
The turtle was just a baby when I took it in, the people who owned it previously only fed it lettuce and didn't have any special lighting for it. Its
shell was deformed and had one eye smaller than the other, but I loved that little thing. It is now big and happy and healthy.
The geckos when I saw them on a few occasions had dirty water and no food. I talked the owner into selling them to me. They are always fed and have
fresh water and had some babies together.
Animlas bring great joy to my life and it is my responsibility to make sure that they are well taken care of and happy.
