Crosby, the cat, came into our lives on a very hot May day. My friend, Judith Roy and I were visiting the North Crosby Community Centre in Westport. As we tried to enter the front door a very emaciated tabby greeted us. It was a friendly, sweet cat, obviously abandoned and appearing to be on its last legs. Everyone at the Centre loved him but no one was in a position to adopt him. We fretted about poor Crosby all that day and night and knew we could not leave him in such dire straits. What to do? In desperation Judith called the Verona Animal Hospital. Without hesitation they said. "Bring him in, we will take care of him." Judith and I hurried back to Westport, found Crosby and delivered him. Just in time. Crosby had an upper respiratory infection and was put on antibiotics immediately. Crosby is now a healthy, happy cat, playfully romping the upper floors of the vet's with two other strays. The cats will be neutered and then will be ready for adoption by good homes.

Thank you to Dr. Heather Carver, Dr. Laura Prociuk and all the wonderful staff at the Verona Animal Hospital who so lovingly care for our pets and then so generously donate their time, effort and hearts to caring for strays. They contribute to the compassionate spirit that makes Verona such a wonderful place to live. For more information on adopting Crosby or the other animals or to contribute to help with the care of strays, please contact Verona Animal Hospital (613) 374-1270.
