A Happy Tail
Boudreaux the Tail-less Cat
When our eight-year-old cat died unexpectedly, I told my girls that we
would never get another cat. I just didn’t want to get so attached to a
pet and risk the hurt of going through that kind of loss again. But
like a lot of people, as time went by, I remembered why we had a cat in
the first place – they were entertaining, easy to care for, and
loveable companions. I also knew it wasn’t right to deny a needy animal
a good home when we were perfectly capable of loving one.
My daughter and her friends took donations for Madison ARK at
their birthday party, so I had to go there and deliver the
money and pet food. I had never been to Madison ARK, but once we got
there it didn’t take long to realize that we were missing a pet in our
family. I told my daughters that MAYBE we would come back and get a cat
The next week, we came back and just looked. We didn’t pick out a pet.
I thought I wanted a cat similar to the one we had lost, so I was
looking for a black and white cat. My girls both wanted something
totally different from our previous cat. They had their eye on a Manx
grey and white kitten. I thought he was weird looking…he had no tail!
But the second time we went back, I noticed that he was the most
curious and playful of the whole bunch. I decided to go with the girls,
and we took the Manx home and named him “Boudreaux”. Without a doubt,
he is very entertaining. He makes me laugh every day. I am
so glad that we decided to open our hearts up to a pet that needed us.
It turns out we needed him too.
Since we adopted Boudreaux, my girls have started volunteering at the
Madison ARK. They wash animals, play with cats, and walk dogs. It’s
great for them and the pets. Madison ARK is a wonderful
facility and Boudreaux is a great pet! ---Jennifer from
