Love-A-Stray Cat Piper Will Warm Your Heart

Tabby overcame frostbite and will soon be ready for adoption.

It was a great weekend for Love-A-Stray at its in North Olmsted, as ten cats brought there were adopted.

Let's keep that winning streak going by finding a home for Piper!

Piper, estimated to be about 18 months old, was rescued from a drainage ditch after being thrown from a car. He got frostbite on his paws, tail and ears from staying in the frigid water of a drainage ditch because he was so frightened.

Piper's ears are now rounded after the frozen tips were removed. About an inch and a half of his tail will be coming off soon as well. But he's quickly recovered his playful, affectionate nature at the Love-A-Stray shelter. He loves being held and petted, and really likes to play. My camera strap was his favorite toy while he was being taped.

If you're interested in Piper, or would like to see other cats and kittens available for adoption, contact Love-A-Stray at loveastray@gmail.com. You can also donate money to help cover the costs of spaying/neutering cats, food, litter and health care.

Here's an update via Facebook from Piper's catmom: "Hello from Piper! He wanted me to let you know he is doing wonderful... he enjoys playing with his special gold spikey ball (gold pom-pom ball) and loves to drop it in our laps to throw for him. He has been taking over the household and getting into all the good sun-shine spots. He loves to just hop into laps and purr away while we pet him. He is just a bundle of fun!"
