Great news for Charlie

Here's hoping he has a loving, long happy life after the difficult start he had.

Charlie just went to his new home! I left work early to be there. It was so touching to see how much his new "dad" loves Charlie and treats him with so much gentleness. And, of course, Charlie was loving it.

Because of the ongoing animal cruelty investigation and fact that Charlie still needs to be neutered, we'll be staying in touch to follow his progress. I just love a happy ending!

Looks like Charlie is going to need some good vibes. He reinjured one of his legs and may need more surgery to repair it. Please keep this sweet little guy in your thoughts and prayers.

OMGosh, I just saw this thread for the first time and was so happy while reading it to learn that Charlie had found such a loving forever home. How sad to learn he has hurt himself again, do you know what happened to cause the injury? Please tell me the teacher is keeping him indoors?

I'm so sorry, poor little Charlie will definitely be in my thoughts and prayers. Please do keep us up to date on what is happening with him. Such a sad beginning on such an early life. My prayers that he heals quickly and can learn to be happy & pain free the remainder of his life.

Thanks so much for the prayers for Charlie. He apparently got a little spooked by a loud noise in his new home and tried to run away faster than he's actually capable of. It's a set back, but the vet said he should be fine. His new dad is just devasted. And yes, Charlie will be an indoor only cat.

After a temporary setback when Charlie reinjured one of his legs, he has been cleared by his vet to return to normal, active kitten duty.
The pins the vet inserted have done the trick to cause his bones to heal properly and, while he make walk a little funny for a while, he should be just fine! His dad reports that Charlie is a crazy, affectionate little guy, who likes to jump up in bed at play at 3:30 a.m, but said he doesn't mind a bit. Another happy ending!

Regarding the cruelty investigation - with no witnesses the SPCA doesn't think this will go anywhere, but will let everyone know if this changes.

Thanks to everyone for the good vibes during Charlie's recovery. You guys are awesome!

I'm glad Charlie is such a brave little kitty and is recovering from these injuries. It sounds like he has a wonderful purr-sonality.

Regarding the SPCA investigation, four neighborhood children witnessed the suspect killing the other two kittens. In the email you forwarded from Millie, she says she has signed statements from the kids and that they told other people about the incident as well. At least three SPCA "investigators" were given that information so it upsets me that they keep claiming there are no witnesses.

I am so glad you were able to rescue Charlie.

Regarding animal cruelty, it happens an awful lot more often than I would expect in a civilized world. Empathy for other living creatures is something that most children should have, but many don't. Yes serial killers start out that way, but so do some plain ordinary folks. The literature says it is done by those who feel inferior and use torture as a way to feel powerful.

It still tears me up that stuff like that happens. No matter how much I read, I don't understand how some people can be so cruel. There's got to be more to it than a lousy childhood, because plenty of people with lousy childhoods turn out to be kind gentle adults.

That 12 year old needs help now. I don't understand the part about no witnesses. Did he scare the other kids into not talking?

I just found this thread. What a story about little Charlie! Very glad there is a new ray of sunshine in his life.

We recently heard from Charlie's (now named Trip) owner. The little guy apparently isn't so little anymore. He was neutered in Dec. and had a final check on his once injured rear legs. They have completely healed and he now runs, plays and jumps like any active young cat!

Unfortunately, the SPCA ultimately decided there wasn't enough evidence to pursue the abuse case. It's very disappointing, but at least Trip ended up getting the care he needed and will have a loving home for the rest of his life.

I somehow missed this thread!!!! I am sorry that I could'nt offer any vibes in his time of need, but I am SUPER happy to hear he is fine now. That is really, really great. What a special little guy he must be
