May 10, 2002  Woody arrives. His history is classified as "a mystery." This ten-day-old kitten, found in a woodpile, has one eye barely open and the other filled with dirt and pus. His right leg is broken.

This little tyke is gutsy from day one. He eats like a champ, sleeps through the night (wow!), and sucks down every ounce of formula we offer him.


May 28  Woody's first meal, all on his own. What a mess! He moves around on three legs, holding his little injured leg up like he is begging for sympathy. He gets it frequently.

July 15  Woody is moving around at a high rate of speed on three legs. He falls on his right side frequently, but jerks himself up. His motto is "Try, try again!"

August 10  Woody's leg has healed nicely, and he is using all four legs. This little rascal is running like gangbusters everywhere. He is so devilish...he's wonderful!


Woody make me smile.

Update on Woody Woodpile

October, 2004 -- "Woody turned two in May, and continues to do very well despite his rough beginning. He loves to play with anything that moves...even our toes! He is much loved and brings lots of joy to our household." --Marilyn


It takes a lot of people pulling together to make success stories like Woody's a reality. If our cats are never offered a home, they can live at the shelter for the rest of their lives. They will receive lots of love, and all the care and comfort they need. But we need your help to do this.
