This is our wonderful pal Herman. Sometimes he feels sick. That's because he has Feline Leukemia. And let me tell you, Feline Leukemia sux. Majorly. But the great news about Herman is that he found a forever home with Miss Karen Jo, who has been the best Mommy to him that a kitty could ever wish for. She has been so good about making sure that whatever Herman needs to feel better, he has it. And that's what being a good cat 'rent is all about. No matter what it is to make certain that we are enjoying the very best life we can, given our circumstances, well, we shall have it. And Miss Karen Jo is doing just that very thing for our pal Herman, she's seeing that even with a yucky, terrible disease, Herman is enjoying every day to his fullest.
So, here's the cool thing, Herman gave me an award - yup, ME - RUDY! of The Rudy Report...me, RUDY who has no mats and smells like a summer breeze off of the Rocky mountains. And has clean ears, and clipped clawrz and a shaved hiney...but I digress...
Herman has bestowed an award to me - the Mood Ring Award!
I received it because I am an awesome Orange boy even if Tiffany, my lovely groomer, stole a lot of my orange furs. So I really want to thank Herman for thinking of me in my time of distress.
All of us in O Hi O are sending our purrs to Herman and to his 'rent. It's so hard to have such an awful disease like FK, but it shows what the power of love is all about - caring for those who are sick, but at the same time, seeing past the illness to the core and soul of a sweet feline like Herman.
So today, my Rudy report is about reminding all of us, all we ever need is love. Srsly.
