Featured My Mutt... "Polish"
We adopted Polish in the Concord Pet Food Express store from an organization called TLCC, which rescued cats and kittens that were destined to be euthanized, and fostered them until they could be adopted. We had lost our 16-year-old cat about 8 months prior, and I was hoping to find another kitty that would be compatible with our then-16-year-old dog, Rex. I mentioned this to the woman and she picked up Polish, a 5 month-old black and white kitten scheduled to be euthanized because she was considered undersized, and said - "This is your cat! She loves dogs!"
Well, she was right. Plus she even matched Rex's black and white motif! (Polish’s name has its own story: the TLCC woman names her batches of rescues in alphabetic groups, and Polish was part of the "P" batch. She has several alternating black and white colored toes, so of course she became Polish because of her “nail polish.”)
Rex and Polish remained best friends until we lost Rex to cancer in October, 2012. The loss of Rex was so great, and the house was so very empty without a dog, that we adopted Holiday, a black and white border collie mix, in November. Polish and Holly are now becoming fast friends, and we continue our black and white tradition! Thank you, Pet Food Express, for promoting the rescue and shelter organizations with your My Mutt program!
