I adopted Opie

This is Opie frum Best Frends Animul Sankchewery. I sponserd him today and pade with sum of those credit cards I git in the male. I pikt him becuz he was fownd in a storm drane, wich as yoo know, is conveenyuntly lokayted under the gutter. So I thot we had a lot in commun. Heer's his biograffy:
Opie must be a Lord of the Rings fan, because he does his best to look like Gollum! When he's not skulking around, you'll find him hunched in the corner, looking suspicious. And he has had enough adventures to fill a book! Before he came to Best Friends, he had been wandering around Venice, California, dazed, hungry, and thirsty. Suddenly, he found
himself trapped in a storm drain. He couldn't jump out! He was desperate. Little did he know, a dog would be the one to come to his rescue! A particular little dog and his person went for a walk every day past where Opie was trapped. And whenever they went by, the dog would stick his nose in to say hello. His person began to wonder what was in there. When she looked, she saw Opie! By the time he was rescued, he was really skinny - nearly dead!

After Opie was found, he was brought to the vet where it was discovered that he has diabetes as well as a spinal injury from having once been hit by a car! Because his diabetes was untreated for so long, his back legs don't work so well - that's why he couldn't jump out of the storm drain. Opie had been tired, thirsty, and hurting for so long that he never thought he'd be happy again. But now that he's at Best Friends, he finds his mood improving every day. And it turns out that despite his sulky looks, he's a
very personable cat.
So now I have to figyur owt how I can go visit Opie hoo livs far away in Yoo-tah. I've bin looking at the greyhownd bus skedjools, but the bus duzn't come to Castro Valley and I woodn't like to ride on a dawg bus anyway. I thot maybe I cood take BART, but that sownds too much like BARK wich makes me nervus. THE END -- RtGC

>> Yoo can sponser a cat, too. Clik heer for deetales. It also mite be a good place to look for gerlfrends if yer so inklined.

That's wonderful what you did, Rocky! Opie must be very happy that you adopted him, and I think you feel good, too... kinda like when I adopted Good Sam. My mom says that kitties with diabetic neuropathy can be helped by something called methylcobalamin (a form of vitamin B12), which she read about on the website of a cat whose name was Jasper, who had diabetes. She said studies have been done in Japan about this. Maybe you could tell Opie about the studies, and maybe his caregivers at Best Friends could look into it as treatment for him.

Once again, way to go Rocky!

P.S. I hope you're feeling better. We were all worried about you.

Your friend,
