Another Sanctuary resident at PURR WV is Houdini.
Houdini is a 'she' but the name stuck. She used to excel at 'getting out' of a room, a cage, or a house, and her humans could not figure out how she did that! Houdini came to PURR from a really bad animal welfare case where she was forced to exist in horrid conditions. When PURR found
her, she jumped on her rescuer's shoulder from the top of the door and never looked back!
Houdini has been living at PURR for about 3 years now, checking up on the other kitties and making sure all is well. She has some back trauma and sometimes her hind legs do not work so well, and this summer, PURR noticed that it was getting harder for her to move around. She now lives in a large clean cage that keeps her safe from getting lost, or hurt. She still gets out into the room to stretch her legs and socialize with the other cats, but it is now supervised to make sure she does not hurt herself. She gets pain medication when necessary, supplements to keep her healthy, and grooming to keep her looking good. And of course, much loving attention from PURR volunteers who stop by and tell her what's going on elsewhere in the sanctuary. Houdini has a forever home now where she is safe and loved and spoiled. As she should be.
It is because of your kindness and generosity that these cats have the quality of life they deserve and long for. PURR is always looking for sponsors to help save a life and give our sanctuary cats the medication, specialized food and ongoing medical care they require. We rely solely on donations in our mission to help cats like these three that would otherwise be abandoned at a high kill shelter or dumped in the streets. Please consider sponsoring one of our cats!
