Since I will be announcing the winners of the "101 Dalmatians" contest tomorrow, I was compelled to post this weekly feature a day in advance.
Of course you remember Grace, who was featured as Pet of the Week last week, on our Fabulous Friday on Frequently Feline.
Well it seems that her "lofty" position has been rivaled by Linda's big boy, Simon who she adopted when he was 7 1/2 years old. Linda, a vet tech, has a heart as big as all outdoors. Simon had been signed over to the clinic where she was working. He had been put out as a declawed cat, taken to a "no kill" shelter but was almost put to sleep because he was a biter.
He was eventually adopted but developed a serious upper respiratory infection. When he was ready to go home, he needed a feeding tube but his owner was not able to deal with it, so she reluctantly signed him over to the clinic. Linda and Simon fell in love with one another instantly, and the love affair continues.
He now weighs 18 pounds. He is a "talker" which Linda so thoroughly enjoys. She only regrets that she did not have him as a fur kid since his kittenhood.
From his appearance, Simon is not at all shy about telling the world who he is. This is a lot of cat, don't you agree? I just love his pose. I wonder if he is recovering from a catnip hangover? Let's conCATulate Simon by leaving a comment for being our Pet of the Week.
