Featured MAPS pet of the week: Peanut
By Janet Gilbert
MAPS Adoption Coordinator
Peanut is a cat that was born homeless last summer. As a tiny kitten, she suffered a terrible injury, was alone, and found her way through a rain storm to a good Samaritan’s garage, where she collapsed from exhaustion. She was taken to the vet to be euthanized due to her injuries, but at the last minute, looking into their faces with a purring “meow,” they just could not do it, so they invested the time and money to try to save her. She bonded with her owner, and she never left his side until he passed away suddenly. Then Peanut was once again left homeless and grieving the loss of her best friend.
Due to her early injury, Peanut’s right arm is paralyzed, but that does not stop her. Her adoption fee is $75, and she is spayed, vaccinated, blood tested, and microchipped.
