We used the money to pay toward the vet bill that we accumulated for Mr. Bojangles’ insulin needles. He is a diabetic kitty that is in foster care. Mr. Bojangles says, “I am a super super friendly polydactyl tuxedo kitty — yes, I have awesome paws with extra toes! My paws look like little baseball mitts! I was rescued from an abandoned building on a cold winter day. Every since my rescue mom found me, I cannot stop purring! If she just looks at me I purr!
