    Shorty

    Dear darling Shorty - you are so beautiful!

    I have tears in my eyes as I write this! People who treat animals badly defy description.

    But your story has a happy ending, Shorty, as you have been rescued by loving people. And I can tell that you chose your new owner! I also rescued a mistreated cat - my Tootles - a seal point Siamese and he gave me so much pleasure over many years, but for the first year or so he cringed whenever he heard an alarm bell.

    Shorty, have the best of COTD days! You deserve it!

    Shor-tay! Your are so cute. Look at your pretty bright eyes. I see you've figured out that sinks were made in the perfect mold of a kitty's sleeping body.
    Congrats gorgeous!

    Congratulations Shorty!!

    Shorty, we too understand how difficult trust and love can be to understand once you've been abused. BeBop (who even looks like he could be your brother http://catoftheday.com/archive/2002/June/05.html) sends some special noserubs to you today, as he understands only too well what you've been through! We all applaud your family for giving you the loving home you now have! Enjoy your day, little guy! And above all, be happy!

    Hi!!

    Hi Shorty, Im glad you got a loveing home, but dont feel alone because many cats have been hurt, But, they get VERY loveing homes so thye can heal. I rescued my kitty when she was only 5 weeks old, a guy tried killing her by putting her on a grill, I myself Almost got hurt because I was brave enought to run up and grab her, they chased after me, but a cop went by and they ran the other dirrection. Me and my kitty Princess Joy who is 2 in human years now send you lots of love

    PS. the pic below is kinda fuzzy but incase u dont see it to well, its Princess fighting a lightsober from starwars DarthVader better watch it, Princess is one tough Kitty Jedi!!!

    Hello Shorty!

    Happy, happy Cat of the Day to you. What beautiful colouring you have, just stunning.

    I'm so glad you have a nice life now.

    There was a segment on the radio the other day, with people ringing in to talk about the worst jobs they've done. One person rang to say he worked as a sorter at a recycling plant and he used to discover litters of dead puppies left in the recycling. I just cried at how awful some people can be.

    Shorty
    I'm so glad you have a wonderful forever home now and are learning to trust again. How someone could be mean to an animal is beyond me. I hope you have a great day with lots of good things for being our special Cat of the Day today.
