In Cornwall, Ontario there was a cat named Sylvester. On a wall next to him was a note which read, Please leave cat alone. Cat there for a reason. Thank you. He was supposed to be catching rats. He wasn’t doing so well with that. In fact, his fur was frayed, his body covered in sores, bites and fleas & he had a severe case of ear mites.
When Rob Boisvert, an animal rescuer with Refuge RR, heard about Sylvester through a friend, he visited the home & found the cat’s working conditions even more nightmarish. The house, which is in the heart of a neighborhood notorious for drugs & prostitution, was divided by temporary renters. He saved him & Sylvester was more than ready to go. He is now at the Country Cat Sanctuary. Where he is awaiting his forever person/family. Please go to, I Heart Cats, to read the entire article.
