A kind New Jersey guy saw a stray cat with kittens in his neighborhood and attempted to assist them. Unfortunately, the mother cat did not do well on the streets. The kittens were sent to a city shelter because they needed medical care and a place to sleep.
Sarah Sharp, the founder and president of the Community Cat Club (animal advocates in South Jersey), spotted the shelter’s message and responded quickly. The kittens appeared to be half-grown for their age. Despite everyone’s best efforts, one kitten, the smaller one, did not survive.
The sole survivor, Lenny, carried himself with great fortitude. He glanced at Sarah with his strange eyes when he first saw her.
While still weak and lethargic, Lenny tried to play and even made at times something like a purr. Under the painstaking care of the guardians, the kitten perked up and immediately put its newfound energy into play. “As soon as he got better, he began to constantly play and purr,” says Sarah.
While in foster care, Lenny developed symptoms of neurological disease. But it doesn’t slow him down at all.
Lenny is enthralled by everything around him, and he climbs into every nook and cranny he can find. He enjoys leaping about the room, landing on the bed and jumping off again and again.
“This is his persona. Her muzzle drives me insane throughout the day. He enjoys running about like a wild child and greeting my dogs,” Sarah explains.
Lenny took a fighting posture and lifted his fur to seem huge and frightening as he saw himself in the mirror. Trying to capture the small “imposter” by jumping back and forth around the mirror.
Despite his neurological issues, Lenny is determined to enjoy life to the fullest. He wants to be a part of everything and is fully immersed in his boyhood, unconcerned about anything.
He frolics to his heart’s joy, his purring filling the room.
He likes to stand next to his guardians and look at them with huge round eyes when he is not occupied performing pranks. The art of looking has achieved new heights for someone’s future auditor.
Lenny receives a lot of love, attention, and everything he needs to thrive thanks to Community Cat Club volunteers.
“He’s having a terrific time,” Sarah adds, “and I’m determined to provide him a better future.”
