Hitting the Kitty Cat Lottery

Posted: March 12, 2011 in my pets

“Alley Alex” is a nickname for the cat I was rescued in 2005. He was 4 months old, abandoned in a parking lot near an alley with every leg broken, except one. Many friends think Alex is named after Alexander Skarsgard since I’m a fan of Eric Northman of True Blood. I don’t overly deny it, but Alex was actually named after Alexander the Great. I thought that he needed a warrior’s name, a strong name. So maybe it does fit actually. If you watch True Blood, you know Eric is a BAMF and not a vampire to mess with. 🙂

Check out videos of his progress as Alex healed from February 2005 to May 2005. He “hit the kitty cat lottery” as my husband called it. Oddly enough, I got laid off from a 4 year job that month in February and reserved a large severance package which was a gift from the gods indeed. Healing Alex took right at $3,000 in vet bills.  If you see photos of Alex or my other animals on my website, don’t mind them. I refer to my two cats and dog as my co-workers since I primarily work from home if I’m not traveling.
