My New Favorite Cat
Poor Cooper was brought into the shelter after she was hit by a car. She's lost her left eye, and several teeth (so her tongue often hangs out). She really looks like Bill the Cat from "Bloom County." (I'll let you compare the images:

She is, however, so sweet. Every time I have worked with her she has crawled right into my lap and not moved. Today she spent 30 minutes curled up on my lap, leaning her head against my chest and letting me pet her all over. She played a little, but mostly just wanted the love. I kept telling her what a beautiful girl she is. And she really is. I hope someone looks past her first impression to see the gorgeous gray love bug that I just want to take home and protect so that she never has to have another bad day. I really, really, really want her to find a loving home. I'm just sorry it can't be ours.
