Widower seeks homes for dozens of felines after brood becomes too much to handle
There's Cyrus, who snuggles into your shoulder and licks your ear. Then there's Lovey, who lives to cuddle – and eat. And there's Mr. Freezie, fully recovered after being freed from ice last winter.
They lost their first home because someone didn't want them. Now they've lost their "mother" – a devoted animal lover who couldn't say no to a creature in need.
Sonja Currell collapsed in her husband Frank's arms a month ago. Asthmatic and 65, she succumbed to a heart attack, leaving her partner of 46 years and 83 cats who shared their Scarborough home.
Now, as much as it breaks his heart, Frank must find new homes for them. He's in poor health, having lost a lung to cancer and still recovering from radiation treatment.
I read about this in today's Toronto Star.
Bless their hearts for taking in 83 cats.
But I can't imagine having that many! Sometimes our two are two too many.
If you are looking for a kitty, head to the adopt-a-thon at Petsmart in Richmond Hill tomorrow (Friday), Saturday and Sunday. For information, call 905-764-6116.
