One Cats's Journey Part I

This all began a couple of night's ago as I was scanning through some Twitter tweets or chirps. A 12 year old blind cat named Nick was scheduled to be euthanized the next day. He was deemed unadoptable as a result of his blindness. There I gazed at a photo of a helpless black and white cat whose only crime in life was to get old and survive his owner. (I will appeal to all pet owners to make provisions for the pets in the event of incapacitation or death later.
The time was 8 pm EDT and Nick was located at the Manhattan AC& C http://www.nycacc.org.

I found there website and popped out a couple hasty emails stating who I was and asking them to put a hold on Nick. Then the flurry of emails, twitters, and Facebook posting began to fly through cyberspace. I contacted with old friends Jackie Meyer, Executive Director of the Greater Birmingham Humane Society Alabama http://www.gbhs.org and Vet Pet list owner, moderator, and general all around pet advocate Hilary Brown (vetpet@vetpetpartners.com) for assistance. they immediately jumped into action. By 11 pm we had Nick's ID, location and information from the shelter and volunteer to drive him to Rochester.

However, the first hurdle had not been met and that was formalzing his adoption and taking him off the euthanasia list. But that would have to wait for morning.
