My dear friend Bonnie found little Ali Kat on a freezing November morning in an alley in Circle, Montana. Less than five wks old, alone, starving, with a herpes virus so severe that both eyes were glued shut. Knowing we had recently lost one of our beloved cats, Bonnie’s husband Dan drove 300 miles to bring Ali to us. Medication healed her, although a year later she still has only partial eyesight & is cross-eyed. That hasn’t stopped her from ruling the house with her non-stop antics. She truned our 13-yr old cat Annie into a kitten again, and our three dogs are very protective of her. Since we worry about her safety because of her eyesight, she always wears a bell so we know where she is. Ali has brought such joy to our home, we simply cannot imagine life without her. Her eyes may not be perfect but her vocal cords a re. She was hollering in the alley then, and she’s hollering at us now. We thank God and Bonnie & Dan every day for this little mischievous bundle of love!
