My Hero ...
In honor of Blog the Change for Animals, I would like to introduce you to my good friend Huey. Huey and I were both admitted to Red Door Animal Shelter in 2001. But while I was quickly adopted, Huey has spent the last 9 years at the shelter. The shelter is a nice place and Huey gets tons of love, but it is not a real home.
Huey is a “special needs” cat with an emphasis on the special. As a kitten he was so severely abused that his little body was broken into pieces. And despite multiple surgeries and years of traditional and alternative therapies, he has permanent damage to his spinal cord and little or no control over his tail, hind legs, and bladder.
But the really SPECIAL thing about Huey is his super duper positive outlook on life. He is a happy-go-lucky guy with a sincere love of life, people, and other cats. He never complains (except when volunteers refuse to share their lunch or fail to give him the attention he deserves). Huey is one in a million and a true inspiration to everyone who knows him!
Without further ado, meet Huey!
