This is the story of Lynx


Lynx, a brown tabby cat, was found by a maid at a local motel at 2-1/2 weeks old. He was taken home by a Bond County Humane Society volunteer because he needed round the clock nourishment. Lynx grew very sociable, loving cats and people, but he never met a dog. He showed very high energy in the morning, but would cuddle and nap in your lap later on. Lynx found his forever home through us when he was twelve weeks old.

This is a letter we received in December 2009 from his new family:


Willie and I adopted Lynx on October 10th from your adoption at PetSmart in Glen Carbon this year. I just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful blessing. We are so thankful for Lynx, whom we renamed Jerry. He is so much fun. EVERYONE loves him, including my 2 yr old niece, whom Jerry enjoyed playing with and meeting. He is so very loving all the time, playful, and I enjoy our afternoon naps we get to share now. He comes trotting to you when you call him, which is so awesome.

I attached a pic I had on my computer of him. He was taken to the vet last month and he weighed 5.9lbs and is in great health. I can't believe how much he has grown. They told us he is going to be a big boy! We are so blessed to have come across such a well behaved cat that loves us just as much as we love him.

Thanks again BCHS!

-Willie & Nikki
