On Nov. 22, the week of Thanksgiving and the beginning of the holiday season, three miracles took place at The Humane Society of St. Lucie County. Three very unique pets, ones that many would consider having handicaps, found their forever homes.
Maureen Flynn of Port St. Lucie was reading the paper and set her eyes and heart on Jim Bob, a one-eyed Tiger-striped cat with part of his left ear missing, which was living at the shelter since June of this year. Flynn arrived at The Humane Society with her neighbor, Marge Newberger, to look at Jim Bob. During their meeting in the cat community condo, Sonny, an all-white deaf cat started to gently paw at her arm. Sonny had been living at the shelter since May of this year and was frequently overlooked due to his disability.
Flynn said, “I came to the shelter to adopt one cat and ended up leaving with two!”
