Raise your Paw if you need some “Aww!”
This post celebrates the joy that a pair of rescued kitties has brought to my life.
Castor and Pollux were left by their feline mommy on a grill in our backyard during a harsh winter storm. They were completely feral. After a lot of travail, we captured them and brought them into our warm house. They still have their “wild” moments, but overall they have grown into happy housekitties.
They may look like identical twins on first blush, but a closer inspection shows one very crucial difference: Castor has a tail and Pollux does not. Their feline mommy also lacked a tail. They are Manx cats. Because of his shortened spinal cord, Pollux has had some significant health problems, and he had to have a couple of surgeries as a kitten. He is on a special diet and takes medicine twice a day. But you would hardly know he’s ever had any problems when you meet him. As I like to say, what he lacks in tail he makes up for in personality!
