Just Cats of NJ
Hi my name is SUNDAY
It has not always been Sunday, one hot April morning I was at my end and I met a nice woman that gave me that name.
Let me start from the beginning:
I had a home, a nice one. I loved sitting in the window for hours. I am a good cat, maybe once or twice I may have scratched at the couch.,but I couldnít help myself, but for the most part I laid around and ate fancy feast.
I slept at my humans feet all night
I thought they loved me too, I know I loved them
Those were four great years.
But one day the house was noisy, they put my couch in a big truck and threw my littler box in the garbage.
I was scared and I hid all day, a lot of people where everywhere.
But by the end of the night my house was empty and quiet. My human, my friend, the person I loved and trusted put me in the yard with a bowl of dry food and off they went.
I was never outside and I was scared I waited in my yard for her to come back and get me.
Surely they would not leave me here.,was I bad did I do something wrong? Where did they go? When would they be back?
The night was long and cold and I was scared, so many sounds, I was so alone.
A few cats came by but they hissed at me and scared me away from my own yard.
I needed to wait there,,I needed to be there for when my human returned for me. But she ever came back to get me.
I was hungry by the third day and didnít know how to find food so I walked and walked and walked.
I got tired and went under a porch to protect myself from the rain at least I now had some water to drink.
I walked by houses, still hungry, a man came outside.
I went to him and he threw a rock at me , Im not sure why. I was only looking for some food, some shelter, someone to help me find my human, someone who would take away this scared feeling.
I ran from the man throwing rocks.
I found a garbage bag that was opened.
I ate a piece of chicken and then went to sleep for the rest of the day. I was so tired and scared.
From one yard to another I went and people were not nice to me.
They yelled and I ran.
Once a little girl gave me a piece of hamburger and picked me up and brought me to her house.
Her mom yelled and put me on the sidewalk.
I tried to cross the street and a big car hit me in the head I went flying to the side of the road. It hurt oh boy did it hurt. I was dazed and I couldnít get up.
I stayed there for a long time,,thinking I wish I still had my couch.
I got up and moved and went under a porch, I stayed there for a long time hoping it would stop hurting.
My bones hurt my head hurt.
I was scared, I was so alone.
It was cold all night and for many nights after that.
One day I was able to get up and walk away .
I had lost a lot of teeth and caught a cold.
It hurts real bad when I breath now.
My eyes and my nose have stuff coming out.
I cough a lot and this big hole in my head really hurts.
It is hard now for me to walk around and food is hard to find, I cant smell it, I donít know where it is.
Im weak now, oh so weak now.
Maybe I should just lie down so the pain can go away, maybe it is time to die.
Sunday now resides at Just Cats where he recovering from such severe wounds.
Just Cats is a rescue who deals mainly with special needs cats, chronically ill, terminally ill, most come to us in very rough shape due to unintentional neglect, some intentional abuse. Our special kids are placed into foster homes who deal with their special needs, be it runny noses, severe bowel disorders, some kitties come to us to spend their remaining time on this earth. We generally do not take in adoptable kids, but will assist in finding an answer to their issue.
EUTHANASIA IS NEVER A HUMANE ANSWER, IT IS A HUMAN CONVENIENCE

PLEASE Think before you selfishly discard your cat,,,,,,make an effort and dont be cruel, mean, & heartless! We are tired of watching cats die of broken hearts because of selfish people. Follow through with the commitment you should have made when you took that animal into your home! There is no reason good enough for abandonement, we are NOT an answer, or a solution to your "problem" we are a last resort so your animal is not euthanized or does not end up in a shelter when YOU die,(which is the only good reason for surrendering your pet) not while you are still alive to follow through with your committment!
DON'T BREED OR BUY WHILE HOMELESS PETS DIE
Now that I'm home, bathed, settled and fed, All nicely tucked in my warm new bed. I'd like to open my baggage Lest I forget, There is so much to carry - So much to regret. Hmm . . . Yes, there it is, right on the top Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss. As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave - I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain. I loved them, the others, the ones who left me, But I wasn't good enough - for they didn't want me. Will you add to my baggage? Will you help me unpack? Or will you just look at my things - And take me right back? Do you have the time to help me unpack? To put away my baggage, To never repack? I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see, But I do come with baggage - Will you still want me?
