Lucky Bastard Volpe

Too often I go to my hairdresser and come home not just blonde, but with another four-legged child.  We can all thank her for Officer.

Back in October, I went to get my hair done, left blonde, and with an emaciated cat, needing immediate attention in the back of my car.

A medical miracle, having a herniated abdomen, leaving no room in his chest for his lungs to expand, I rescued “Lucky Bastard” from her driveway, which he was making his personal litter box.
I had no idea what I was about to get myself into by helping this poor creature other’s had turned a blind eye to.

Lucky’s owner of 6 years, impregnated some female, who demanded he be put outside when the baby was born.

Lucky wasn’t so “lucky” back then…his name was Toby.  He was either hit by a car, or someone kicked him – HARD!

He had multiple issues, but he had fight, and more importantly, heart.  He came home to live with us and quickly became a part of our family.

For 6 months that Bastard survived…lived, played, loved, and was loved.
For 6 months we were “lucky”, we were lucky to have had LB in our lives.
