Brave Washington County cat has extraordinary will to live

Brave Washington County cat has extraordinary will to live

In March, the home where the cat lived was destroyed by fire. To save itself, he was forced to jump from an upper story window, which resulted in its breaking two legs and the pelvis.  Remarkably,  the cat then dragged itself into a nearby barn where it suffered alone with no food or water for the next three weeks while its owner was hospitalized with third degree burns.

Dr. Lydia Pryor’s BayView Animal Hospital in East Machias examined this cat for the first time on April 6 when his owner brought him to their offices for vet care.

Helping Out Your Family Pet in Sullivan

Helping Out Your Family Pet in Sullivan

Hi everyone!

I am a huge lover of all animals. I have taken in 3 stray cats in the past 5 years. I can't help it, I fall in love with these helpless little animals and have a need to make sure they are safe, warm, and loved. And trust me, these 3 cats have more food and love than they could have ever imagined. So, today I want to share with everyone a few places and information where you can help local pets in Sullivan. I was so happy to learn of the many different ways that the town of Sullivan has been raising money for the pets who need help in the town. One of those ways is the local thrift store that is located in the basement of the Sullivan/Sorrento recreation center. I have shopped in there myself a few times. They have a great selection of books, just so you know!
