|'Ole Shep' can't bark|
In just a couple of days he came in to us. He was so thin and malnourished we didn't know if he would make it. He had pulled most of his fur out down to the bare skin. His fur is coming back now, and he is one happy cat.
I think the only ones happier, are us, his new owners. He is one terrific cat; so loving, and has such a personality. Every time he catches a mole, he brings it on the porch and lays it down, even though he doesn't eat them. He is a good mouser, too. He follows us around like a dog, and just can't get enough petting.
He likes dry cat food in the morning, warm milk at noon, and canned cat food in the evenings. He always wants to be petted before he eats. I just can't tell you how much this little fella means to us.
You might wonder how 'Ole Shep' got his name. When he came here, he was so shaggy, my husband said he looked like a shaggy dog, and lovingly tagged him with 'Ole Shep.'
For us it was a match made in Heaven, and we thank God for 'Ole Shep.'
