Today's feature rescue pet is a stunning boy named Kingsley. His story is one of refuge and heartbreak; Kingsley is also a lesson that there are no time limits on love. Here is Carol's (Kingsley's cat-mom) story (probably best to have some tissues near by):
"We chose Kingsley off the SPCA sight on Facebook and drove up to the Miramichi to adopt him. He was very stressed and had several problems, such as fleas and ear mites. We had him treated by the Vet and he settled into our house very nicely. From the very first night he arrived he made his sleeping quarters right beside my chest with his head laying on one arm. He stole my heart. Unfortunately, he also had a feline disease, FIP, which claimed him recently. He was with us 9 months. At least we know that he died happy, with parents to care for him. It's hard to lose a pet. His sweet little face keeps coming to my mind. We are planning on replacing him with another rescue pet from the same area. It is close to our hearts now, since it was Kingsley original home."
Carol - my deepest sympathy to you and your family on this loss; my deepest gratitude for sharing this incredible story - and it warms my heart to know Kingsley had a wonderful last 9 months to his life.
