cat nap lodge spokes cat and educator george kelley
George came to us in May, 2013 from a feral cat colony located near Portage, MI. This colony of cats is fortunate to have the local residence as caretakers. They feed them, provide them with shelter and watch over them. When George was 4 weeks old, he was very sick and could not keep up with his mother. Eventually he was left behind at the feeding station. One of the caretakers noticed him and realized he was in bad shape. He had a serious upper respiratory infection and both of his eyes were infected and crusted shut. She immediately contacted Cat Nap Lodge and we agreed to take George and provide him with medical care.
Once in our care we realized how special George was. He immediately bonded with the people around him and despite the condition of his health, he appeared to not have a care in the world. For months we worked with our veterinarian to save George's eyesight, but the damage had already been done. In October of 2013 George had both of his eyes removed. It didn't take him long to recover and George was once again running around and playing with all of his friends.
Today George is an important part of Cat Nap Lodge. He is our Spokescat and Educator. He travels with us to all of our events and greets all of our visitors. George wants everyone to know how important it is to spay and neuter your pets. There are too many unfortunate dogs and cats out there who have no one to take care of them. They live a lonely and dangerous life. George was one of the lucky ones.
