Rescue Kitty in Kuwait Thrives on CANIDAE

By Julia Williams

Nowadays, online shopping has made it possible for people in nearly any country to feed their pets premium quality food like CANIDAE. We recently received a delightful story from Walter, an American who is currently living in Kuwait.

Walter has a pretty kitty named Pilly, who was just an itty bitty stray when she was rescued from the streets of Kuwait. Now she lives a great life, eating nutritious food and being spoiled by a man who clearly adores her. Wouldn’t it be great if every kitty in every city worldwide had such a wonderful life?

We loved Walter’s story about Pilly, and thought you might enjoy it also.

From Walter: “I have been living and working in Kuwait at an American military base since August of 2005. I got the cat when my coworker had to leave Kuwait. He found her when she was 2 weeks old and crossing a busy street by herself, and it was 110 degrees. She is about 2 1/2 yrs old now, and she is my boss. I am the pet in this household!

My cat’s name is Pilly. Let me explain. I have maids from India; the company pays for them, so I say OK. Anyway, I showed the maids a tiger on the TV when I was watching NatGeo. I told them that in English, it’s called a tiger. They told me that in their language, Telegu, it’s poolly.
??????????
Months later, I had the cat given to me and when the maids came into my place in the morning, I said ‘Look, a poolly!’ My cat was about 6 weeks old at the time. She was still very tiny, and I fed her with a baby bottle. The maids laughed and said ‘No, poolly means big cat and pilly means small cat.’ So I decided to call my cat Pilly, and my maids do, too.

I was feeding her another brand, but she got fat and wasn’t very healthy. I bought a bag of the CANIDAE Grain Free PURE Sea with Fresh Salmon food for Pilly. She loves it! Plus, she has lost some weight and she acts differently – she acts HEALTHY! She also looks very healthy! Now she is beautiful. Thank you, and my cat thanks you.

Pilly loves to sit and watch the happenings down below from the balcony, where she has a prime viewing spot next to her feeder filled with CANIDAE.”

Thank you, Walter, for sending us such a cute story about your beloved cat. Pilly is adorable, and we’re so glad you rescued her — and that she rescued you right back!

Snowflake the Siamese Rescue Cat

By Laurie Darroch

Now in her teens, Snowflake is a happy, contented and very loved cat, but that wasn’t always the case. Stephanna B. rescued the flame point Siamese cat when they were both very young.

Stephanna spent much of her time exploring the outdoors and engaging in imaginative play in her big backyard, often getting lost in play for hours at a time. Inevitably the local wildlife made an appearance, including blue bellied lizards and many different types of birds. The family dog was usually included in playtime and exploring. They were often spotted playing in the tall wild grasses and digging in the sandy soil, perfectly happy and content.

Unbeknownst to the young girl, an underweight, very wary half-grown cat was keeping an eye on the activities, deciding if this interesting, free spirited little girl was safe to be around. She had cause to pause, as she was an abused cat and humans had not been her allies in her young life.

Slowly the cat began to come into the yard, and Stephanna would talk to her. She made a little bed for the cat out of a cardboard box and lined it with soft bedding, then placed it up in her wooden fort at the top of her swing set. Safe under the overhead canvas roof of the fort, the cat soon found the little house to be a sanctuary and the young girl to be gentle and affectionate. They bonded, but the cat still wandered. She returned more and more often to the big untamed back yard and the happy little girl.
