A Big Thank You to the William Penn Elementary School Students of the Elizabeth Forward School District
My name is Deana Boggs and I love cats. I really am a "cat lady" and I am not ashamed of it. I live with my family in Oakdale in a beautiful old farmhouse...well, there are actually 2 families that live here..mine with my Fiancee and my children, and the feral cat family that I care for. My feral cats literally came with the house, lol....and we treat them like family....along with our 3 indoor cats who are all rescues: Taffy, a 13 year old tortie was a shelter rescue as well as Ziggy our 6 year old gray and white tuxedo shorthair...and Laya, my 3 year old feral rescue who I have cared for since she was 6 weeks old. ALL of our cats are VERY well cared for and I want to help make sure that other families who care for ferals have the same opportunities that I have been blessed with...abundant food, shelter, and care for all cats..and all animals big and small.
I've been running 5K races for many years, and this year I'm ready to make the BIG jump to the Pittsburgh Half Marathon...but I also want to give back...the greatest satisfaction that I get from running isn't a "good time" or "completing a difficult course"...it's helping those in need...no matter if they have hand and feet or paws and fur! My older children are avid runners as well they are learning endurance, patience, and kindness through running...that itself is also a great reward.
Today Val had his neuter surgery and eight very infected teeth removed. One of his testicles had not dropped from his abdomen, so it was a complicated surgery. Val has been on strong antibiotics for two months for the infection in his mouth, but there was still significant infection there today when the vet removed the teeth.
He is in our adoption trailer run and still pretty out of it. There are five more teeth to be removed. The vet proposes that when his neuter stitches are taken out in two weeks, he can have surgery again for these five teeth. This was a big ordeal for Val. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you to foster mom, Cindy Coupe, for her incredible work with Val since his arrival here.
Thank you and God Bless!
