PARSIPPANY, NJ – It’s always great to see old friends again and that’s what the organizers of the Parsippany Cat Show are to me now, new friends. They are all animal advocates and always have cat adoptions from a local shelter on deck for people to rescue. I participated in giving out the People Choice Awards which is always fun. One of my favorite cats is Achilles, the therapy cat. When I first met Achilles, I noticed that he had no back legs. At birth his umbilical cord was wrapped so tightly around his legs that after he was born, his legs had to be amputated. He now serves as a therapy cat and helps others. My platform is “Connecting Pets With People” and that’s exactly what therapy animals are about — connecting with people who need them the most.
