Faith has a new kitten friend named Buble!
Faith loves her new kitten! We adopted little Buble (named after the great jazz singer Michael Buble) just last week when it was discovered that he was going to be put down for being - - can you believe it -- unadoptable! Buble is 6 weeks old, and was found as a stray in our city; which has a great shelter. The shelter however has overcrowding and they deem animals unfit for adoption when they have birth defects to make room for the more, shall we say, standard animal. Buble is blind in his right eye. It probably happened as he was coming down the birth canal. His mother was a ferrel cat, so there's no telling what the situation may or may not be. He falls under the category of being unadoptable and therefore he was on death row.
Because we foster a lot of animals and have a great rapport with the shelter, the manager was willing to overlook a rule or two and allow us to foster Buble for a little while and then adopt him properly after our family was found to be a home wherein he could expect to thrive. Being unadoptable never stopped Buble!
From the second he came home he decided he was going to be the new ruler of the house - - well, cats do that. He began with Faith of course, as she is the Queen, and believe me, she is 100% smitten. They are best of friends. The bed is no longer lonely for Faith, who has been sleeping under it by herself lately since the other dogs have decided to be on top of the bed. Now she has a buddy to play with and playing all day is on both of their agendas. Buble thinks the world of Faith, and she's excited he's a part of her life too. When I explained to Buble that Faith was famous he didn't seem to care one bit -- not one to be star struck I suppose. She looks and smells like a good friend to him, and that's all that matters. Buble even shares his food with Faith from time to time. We gave him June 1 for a birthday; he's already making plans to celebrate. (Cats do that too)
My sister belongs to a no kill shelter in MN. She donates funds every month for the care and up keep of the animals there. One day she received a flyer from the shelter. They had a blind kitten who needed a special home. My sister, who loves kitties of all kinds, shape and types, called the shelter and submitted adoption papers for the kitty. He has had a wonderful life for over two years with her. One thing she does is not move furniture etc around. They are best buddies. She has observed NO PROBLEMS with him, just a wonderful loving, happy, little buggar! LOL!
If you have the home and the lifestyle, get a special needs pet!
In the spirit of friendship and happy animals and people, Sijai
I see you have no pictures of the other dogs you have, but i bet they have nothing wrong with them.
You understand why Faith has been banished to under the bed by the 2 other dogs that enjoy lying on top of the bed dont you. They are the dominant ones & are telling faith she is not welcome. It makes it really uncomfortable for disabled pets when there are perfect ones around!
People can be really mean and quick to judge when they do not know anything about what they are judging.
The other dogs do not see Faith as "disabled" because she can run around and do all the things that they can do.
It's a good idea to add some photos of Faith with her canine family members, but I think that most people are interested in how Faith interacts with and inspires humans.
i completly agree with u! if you don't know the situation and the dogs u can't make a judgement.
You should be thankful for this great family that is doing amazing things for these animals
God bless you for taking buble in :) He looks like our peppy who passed on at age 16! Love the pictures of faith and her baby!
I thought the name Buble was from the Yiddish "bubelah" meaning "darling" - it's really funny when my grizzly 6' 4" 58-year-old Puerto Rican pal Mario calls me "bubelah"
You know, Michael Buble is GORGEOUS so he can be my Bubelah....
