There are transformations, and then there are transformations.
A year ago, our daughter rescued a homeless cat she would eventually name Tippy. Because he was matted in every cardinal direction, his rescuers shaved him down to the nubs, leaving a large pom pom on the tip of his tail.
Not only did he have constant bad hair days, he was born with a neurological deficit, causing him to bobble and weave through life. Navigating AJ's one-bedroom apartment was something of a challenge.
He turned out to be deaf.
Since last summer, when this video was taken, he has fluffed out and changed color.
He still bobbles, but not quite as much.
He is as sweet as the day is long.
His purr can drown out conversation.
And he pretty much keeps Oscar, AJ's enormous black and white galump of a dog, in a permanent state of alert lest Tip deliver a bobble-by chomp to his tail.
(His head was moving, so I apologize for the fuzziness.)
So, who or what have you rescued lately?
