Sunday pm we went to visit friends who had just adopted a beautiful little cat with a tragic past we were informed. It seems pussy had only vision in one eye and had been operated on after a traffic accident. After all that he has a most distinct loving character. He had not been named at that point. This am we received a call for assistance as pussy had got into trouble and my friend was at work. A short walk and i was at the house. I asked what on earth was the matter(the lady was crying) she replied" i put food on a saucer for Nelson and put it on the lawn for him but a big blackbird went for it and poor nelsons hump went up and he rolled back into the duck pond" . i found Nelson licking himself on the lawn so i put him in a towel and was just lowering him into his basket and he looked at me with his good eye and licked my cheek. I could have sworn he was smiling but that gesture fair knocked me for six. He is fine now but tomorrow i,m going to drop a tin of kit e kat at the house. Take care enjoy.

Poor little thing seems not to be lucky but cats can swim and what a lovely gesture of giving your cheek a lick

Och isn't that lovely!!! Cats are instinctive like that, they know when they are being helped! Bless his heart, licking you on the cheek like that, just makes you melt! Very apt name too, my sis-in-law adopted a stray that had been in a fight and only had one ear, and...yes, you guessed it, she called him Vincent (after Van Gogh!).
That was very good of your friend to take him in, there are a lot of cats that need a loving home, but nobody will take them because they aren't pretty enough, or have a disease. We adopted a cat with Feline AIDS, but we all had the happiest times together, and of course we broke our hearts about her when she passed away.
And of course, a kitty will always know a big softy at heart! Lovely blog Tony, it gladdens the heart!!
