Photo of the week - You had me at, "Meow."

On Friday, I had the pleasure of meeting the 14 Persian cats who were recently rescued in a breeder's house after she had passed away. After seeing these precious cats, I realize that the Sacramento Bee article clearly did not do justice in the reporting of their poor condition. A majority of the cats needed to be shaved because their hair mats were pulling away from the skin. None have ever seen a vet and are currently being treated with full medical vaccinations, blood work-ups, spaying and neutering, and complete dental exams. A majority of the cats are seniors. All just want a safe, loving home with an owner who will shower them with attention and affection.

While at the new Happy Tails facility where the boy Persians are currently being housed, I fell madly in love with Liberace. He's a younger cat, probably only a few years, and is very active and energetic. He was very content to play with a feather toy all afternoon. His lovely hair is gray and white and you can tell that he will have a beautiful coat as soon as it grows back in from his new lion haircut! And his golden eyes say, "Take me home now!"

The Persian cats are now safely in the care of Happy Tails and will be available for adoption at the end of May. In the meantime, if you would like to make a donation to the "Persian Rescue Project" to help with their medical bills and care, please visit the Happy Tails website for additional information. If you are interested in adopting one of the Persians, please contact Happy Tails by e-mail at purrball {at} happytails {dot} org.

Over the next several days, I'll post more photos of the other Persians who will soon be available for adoption, as well as some of the other many cats at Happy Tails who need a forever home.

Oh his little face makes me want to cry and adopt all of the kitties. My other cats would, of course, disown me.

Yes, I know exactly what you mean! I would take home all of the older kitties if my rowdy Zoey wouldn't drive them crazy!
