Oh, I just knew I would cry!

It's things like this that show some of the worst in humanity, followed by the best.

Very moving.

Dont mean to hijack this topic as its such a great tribute to all the carers and cats , so sorry to hear about Joey , even in just a few photos he shone brighter than the sun.

There was something very special about him alright  :Luv:

Watched it quite a few times now and it never fails to move me have favourited it on my YooToob profile , soundtrack is great , always gets me the lovely guy with the skin condition later on in the vid , have to say ive been a one cat household for a while but it will soon be 2 again hopefully ,  watching this makes me realise how many furkids there are out there needing a home (and ive found one through catchat viewing him friday) ....... will post as soon as its confirmed.

 :thanks: MooCat.  That was Joey at the end of the vid, was hoping to add an after pic of him but sadly he didn't make it  :( I'm glad he is in the video though, a permanent tribute to him  :Luv2:

That's great news about cat number two - defo keep us updated  :wow:

thanks Tan. Joey bless him, just breaks my heart. I posted on the other thread about what a lovely boy he is. I'm sure he's fighting now that he has someone who really cares for him.
I suppose because mine are old now I feel so strongly about the oldies and how dependent they are on us  :hug: :hug: to them all (and the young 'uns).

those of you working in rescues are just wonderful. Please what happened to the cat at about 3 minutes+ into the video - the old grey cat who is so emaciated and looks blind? That one just broke my heart.

A huge Well Done to Helen for capturing this so wonderfully, I have cried like a baby whilst watching this and am so delighted to see before and after pictures. Those of us in rescue are only able to continue the work we do because of the support we receive from wonderful people such as yourselves.
So a huge thank you to Helen, Tan and all you wonderful people who make our work possible.


Now you have made me cry again  :Luv2:  This world needs people like you Aunty T and believe me I feel so honoured that I actually going to get to meet you.   :hug:

All credit must must go to Our Helen and to all the wonderful cat rescues.

It hits the exact reason Purrs fundraise and why I started Purrs.  ;D - To help cat rescues help the poor little ones that would suffer so without all the wonderful rescue people who dedicate their lives to helping the needy cats.  For them we do this and my heart bursts every time we can help them.

Help us to help the cat rescues who save a lives of cats every day.  ;D
