If you want to submit an article to me about the story of her rescue/operation and recovery I would be happy to look it over and possibly put it on the website-
Just a thought-

Whilst I share your feelings that anyone who could dump this beautiful girl must indeed have something missing themselves; the truth is that she is unique and was placed there deliberately so that she could be appreciated in your home. She knows now that she is truly loved

As you may know, there are many species of life that scientists have not yet discovered and catalogued. Galofies were only recently discovered, partly because they are so shy and prone to hiding, but also because of the remote location where they evolved.
In fact, the Galofagus Islands do not even appear on most maps. It's a small cluster of islands in the South Pacific, in the middle of thousands of islands just like it.
Apparently Galofies evolved the short, stubby tail in response to the large birds that live in the Islands, who hunt by plucking animals off the ground by their tails.
That also explains the strange bird-like squawk of the Galofies, which they use to confuse the birds.
