GoldenEye is our bravest warrior woman. As you can see, her eyes are actually green, but she is golden.
She may have been someone’s “pet,” but they moved and left her, her litter of kittens, and a doberman — locked in their house with no food or water!
When the landlord came to clean up, the tenants had been gone for two weeks, and GoldenEye had only one kitten left. Partial remains of the others were found where the dobie had been sleeping and the poor dog’s face was ripped to shreds.
GoldenEye’s paws were bloody and she had several puncture wounds on her shoulders and both sides of her head, so when she was brought to us we could see how hard she’d fought to protect her babies. We couldn’t help but wonder if she’d been “tame” or if she was let into the house and then locked in as “food” for the doberman because there is more animal cruelty in this area than we’ve ever seen anywhere else. Her kitten was so young she may have still been pregnant when this saga began.
GoldenEye still had all of her claws and most of her teeth when she came to us, and she wasn’t shy about using them. It took her a few days to realize she was safe, and that happened mostly because her kitten kept coming to us, playing, and then returning safely to her side. She was a total beyotch to possible adopters, though, so has been with us ever since. No way were we letting her go to a kill room.
Sadly, the dobie was immediately declared “vicious” and sent to a kill room before we knew either of them existed. Disgusting. I’m sure the dobie was a perfectly wonderful dog just trying to survive (and I wouldn’t feel bad at all if the so-called “humans” who put them in this situation were sent to a kill room)!
GoldenEye is no spring chicken, but she’s very healthy. She’s also become another of our biggest sweethearts, though makes it abundantly clear she is not “one of them (cats).” She really seems to believe she’s “one of us” and does everything she can to separate herself from the rest. She and Godfather are our only loners. They have no cat friends. Which makes winters difficult for them. Suddenly they want the warmth of the masses but everyone runs and/or hisses when they try to snuggle into a pile.
Wouldn’t you love to have this heroic mama on your side?! She’d make a fantastic virtual pet, and an eFur Adoption will go a long way toward keeping her in the style to which she’s become accustomed. Make a donation, today! We’ll love you forever…
