Today’s bachelor is spooky and scary! He’s – hold on, I’ve just received word from MomFOD that that’s not the case. MomFOD, why do you always wait until I’ve started crafting my prose to give me the details?!
Today’s Bachelor’s name is Casper (you can see where I thought he was ghostly), and he’s very friendly. He’s also white. Also, he doesn’t walk so well, and neither did Casper the Friendly Ghost. He mostly floated. Ah, now I’m seeing the connection.
Casper’s life has been a bit dramatic, to say the least. Once part of an outdoor colony, Casper’s caretaker found him one morning completely paralyzed in all four legs, unable to lift his head. It’s no surprise that Tabby’s Place, savior of fallen kitties, has stepped in to help. And help they did!
Casper went from being a complete quadriplegic to being able to walk again. The doctors surmise that he may have spinal cancer, but are unable to biopsy to identify the cause for certain. After treatment with steroids, physical therapy, and antibiotics, Casper has regained some of the use of his limbs. He is now living at Tabby’s Place, and is looking for someone to step in and offer him sponsorship so that he may continue to receive treatment and care until his last day, and when that will be, only heaven knows. For now, Casper is spending his days snuggling, smiling, and being an inspiration to all who meet him. Click here to read a beautiful tribute to Casper written by Angela from Tabby’s Place.
