Thanks love, I appreciate the thought. I dont think that the family would be too pleased. He is a local chap and his parents apparently only live round the corner from me. I think they would be mortified if I showcased the neglect, especially as it had been ongoing over at least three years. ( Not sure if his parents even knew, it was his cat befor he got married) All I can say is thank God for the day I saw her and the day Kim contacted me and also for the fact that he was wiiling to let her go to a new home. I would have brought her home there and then if hubby wasn't allergic ( my dogs would have had to deal with the trauma.LOL) All's well that ends well though.
