SMILES FOR COPPER

I was visiting the vet's office with an S.P.A. animal and saw a cat in a cage who was curled up in the far corner and looked like he was in pain. A sign was hung on his cage which read "SANDUSKY COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY WILL PAY $20.00 LIMIT".

I inquired "So what is the story behind this cat?"

I was told that he had crawled up onto an engine for warmth at a local tavern, Copper Penny. The President of the Humane Society had been called late one night from someone at the bar who tried to start their engine and heard a scream. The President of the Humane Society called a local vet to pick up the cat. The vet was told that if the cat was damaged more than $20 could repair, to "put him down". So the vet said he was going to euthanize the cat because it needed extensive (and expensive) surgery to repair broken bones in his hip.

I told them to put him on our bill, even though we had a very limited budget (in fact we were in debt at that time).

After a story about Copper's plight was graciously printed in the Fremont News Messenger, we received over $800 in donations from compassionate citizens in our area which MORE than covered the surgery. The surgery was 100% successful. Copper had a pin in his hip for over 3 months and received all of his shots and was neutered.

For a year we tried to find Copper a home but strangely had no luck.

Then one day a compassionate woman from Fremont called to ask if we had a "special" cat that her father-in-law (who lives near Elyria) might adopt. Within 4 years he lost his wife and his 3 cats. She was now looking for a cat that would give her father-in-law the love and companionship he so richly deserved. To us, Copper seemed to be the perfect choice.

The ending to this happy story can be summed up by the following picture:

Image -  - A picture truly is worth a thousand words. What you see is a perfect match - a happy human and happy cat. Copper is now living a very 'spoiled cat' life and giving back much love in return. All this was possible because someone stopped to help an animal in need.

And they lived happily ever after!
