We adopted one from the vet many years ago. She was found by someone collecting deposit cans one the side of the road at the bottom of a bag of empty bottles and cans.

sleeping...she likes to stay close and warm. one of my eyes closed... one open... ftw

What a wonderful pic. I can't stand animal abusers. Your dad is so wonderful to have saved her! So glad she'll have the happy life she deserves. Kudos to you too for playing mommy

Your dad is a good guy, makes me feel good that there are still some really good people out there, and many of them are on this forum.

The only other way this could have happened was if they were laying up in a car somewhere and when the car started moving, they started to jump out...I really hope some one wouldn't do something like this...

If she was abused... then I'm glad we have her now. If not, im still glad we were able to save her.
