Submitted by Oliver the Cat, as told to Eva Nicklas
"My name is Oliver. My family abandoned me last summer. I found a kind lady who was willing to take care of me for a while. She made a bed for me in her garage and fed me every day.
"One day, I had a fight with her house cat. She took him to the vet and he was OK after his wounds healed. But ever since then, that stupid, spoiled cat started peeing everywhere in the house and the nice lady thinks it's my fault!
"So here I am ... looking for a home again. I know I'm not much to look at. I'm not neutered, and my fur is a tangled mess, but I'd be happy to live in your garage as long as you will feed me every day, pet me once in a while, and treat me with compassion and kindness.
"Won't somebody please help me? The nice lady said she would send me off with a cat carrier, a blanket, and lots of food so I wouldn't be a burden.
"I've had such a hard life. Please call the nice lady at 716-870-9202."
