This is the story of Sylvia
Sylvia was approximately one year old in early 2006. She had been abused before BCHS received her, and as a result she suffered a broken pelvis, broken femur and broken front leg.
In spite of her abuse she remained very sweet and affectionate. She did walk with a limp in the back that she will probably have the rest of her life. That did not stop her from running and playing like any other young cat. And this lucky tabby cat got adopted into her forever home.
"After this family adopted Sylvia, they brought 5 or 6 cats to [Bond County Humane Society's annual] Paws In The Park to be micro chipped. That was a real treat. We chipped them in the van just in case they got loose. Fortunately everything went well."
BCHS received this electronic letter in January 2011:
“Hope you had a great Holiday.
We adopted Sylvia back on February 25, 2006. I attached a couple photos. She is doing well and spoiled as are all our cats.
Jim and Leslie Joseph.”
