The Saturday Photohunt theme this week is “over” and ours is over the rainbow in thanks to those who rescue cats. We have a soft spot for senior kitties like Gris Gris, our Adopt-a-Senior Cat poster boy. We’ve also over the moon about one special cat named Koshka, Russian word for cat.
An inspiring group of people and animals were honored this week at the 2013 ASPCA Humane Awards Luncheon in New York City. The ASPCA Cat of the Year is Koshka
Koshka was just another a stray cat in Afghanistan when fate stepped in. She struck up a friendship with cat lover Staff Sgt. Jesse Knott at an army base. Koshka reminded Jesse of life back home in Oregon. Koshka helped her American friend deal with the hardships of war. When it was time for Jesse to return home, he couldn’t abandon his feline friend. Jesse’s parents’ helped bring Koshka to Oregon where she now happily lives. One cat and one human can equal much gratitude in this time of thanksgiving.
