I am an Animal Rescuer

I am an Animal Rescuer
My job is to assist God's creatures
I was born with the drive to fulfill their needs
I take in helpless, unwanted, homeless creatures without planning or selection
I have bought dog food with my last dime
I have patted a mangy head with a bare hand
I have hugged someone vicious and afraid
I have fallen in love a thousand times
And I have cried into the fur of a lifeless body too many times to count
I have animal friends and friends who have animal friends
I don't often use the word "pet"
I notice those lost at the road side
And my heart aches
I will hand raise a field mouse
And make friends with a vulture
I know of no creature unworthy of my time
I want to live forever if there aren't any animals in Heaven
But I believe there are
Why would God make something so perfect and leave it behind
Some may think we are master of the animals
But the animals have mastered themselves
Something people still haven't learned
War and abuse make me hurt for the world
But a rescue that makes the news gives me hope for mankind
We are a quiet but determined army
And we are making a difference every day
There is nothing more necessary than warming an orphan
Nothing more rewarding than saving a life
No higher recognition than watching them thrive
There is no greater joy than seeing a baby play
who only days ago, was too weak to eat
By the love of those who I've been privileged to rescue
I have been rescued
I know what true unconditional love really is
for I've seen it shining in the eyes of so many
Grateful for so little
I am an Animal Rescuer
My work is never done
My home is never quiet
My wallet is always empty
But my heart is always full

Mikey Sees You

But he cant hear you.

Many of you here already know this but for those of you who don't....Mikey was born deaf.
I knew he was deaf by the time he was 8 weeks old, when I would enter the room to give he and his litter mates some kitty milk, they would all run to greet me at the door, except for Mikey, he would still be all curled sleeping away. I would have to literally walk over to him and touch him to wake him up and so the journey began.

Many would assume that living with a deaf cat would be difficult and it has it's challenges no doubt but Mikey is not disabled. Mikey is very capable and very bright, he even knows sign language, he knows...

Come here


Get down

bye bye

Time to Eat (he knows this one best)

These are just the ones off the top of my head, the ones used the most but I talk to Mikey all day long and so there are more I am just not thinking of. Yes, I talk to a deaf cat and maybe I am a little crazy but when we are all curled up together at night and I rest my head on him as I tell him how much I love him and he begins to purr from the vibration of my voice....I don't feel crazy, I don't feel crazy at all, I feel loved, by Mikey.
