At the start of the year i started volunteering at our local animal shelter here in the cat house one to two times a week . 8 years ago i got #mycat from our animal shelter here.
Work includes feeding, playing, fondling(?) and taking photos of our cats. Photos are used for website and local press media. I first met Hugo in the summer, 3 mins after i entered the room he was on my knees – love at first sight .. 😉 .
Since then i visited him evey week. on one visit after a long belly rub he bite my hand (call it lovebite). first i didn’t take it very serious, because you sometimes get scratches, when playing withe the cats. 36 Hours later my hand was badly infected, i went to the hospital and they immediately kept me there for surgical treatment. Take cat bites serious, i talked with several doctors, your chance of infection are better than 80% .
So i spent a week in the hospital, they filled me with antibiotics infusions 3 times a day. After that i started visiting Hugo again.
He was still in a large room with several other (large) cats. One day the animal shelter team found him with a bloody nose and some scratches on his head. The animal shelter team decided to put him in his own little box for recovery. That was the time when i started tinkling about adopting Hugo.
will be continued ..
