Willie's
 
Story
Beginning
 
Nearly
 
A
 
Dozen
 
Years
 
ago
 
A
 
kind
hearted
 
rescuer
 
brought
 
Willie
 
to
 
CCS
 
as
 
a
 
shy
 
five
month
old
 
stray
 
who
 
had
 
wandered
 
into
 
someone’s
 
back
 
yard.
 
He
 
seemed
 
wary
 
of 
 
humans
 
 –
 
but
 
three
 
days
 
later,
 
a
 
senior
 
couple
 
with
 
no
 
other
 
pets
 
adopted
 
him,
 
and
 
he
 
thrived
 
in
 
their
 
home
 
for
 
several
 
years.
 
Then
 
one
 
day
 
his
 
“Mom”
 
died;
 
shortly
 
afterward,
 
“Dad”
 
went
 
into
 
assisted
 
living.
 
The
 
family
 
returned
 
Willie
 
to
 
CCS.
 
The
 
little
 
guy
 
was
 
grieving,
 
and
 
the
 
CCS
 
team
 
had
 
trouble
 
getting
 
him
 
to
 
eat.
 
A
 
month
 
later,
 
his
 
next
 
chance
 
came
 
 –
 
adoption
 
by
 
a
 
family
 
with
 
two
 
teenagers.
 
Alas,
 
this
 
new
 
home
 
lasted
 
only
 
seven
 
months,
 
as
 
the
 
father
 
found
 
that
 
he
 
couldn’t
 
adjust
 
to
 
living
 
with
 
a
 
cat.
 
Back
 
to
 
CCS
 
came
 
Willie.
 
Stoner
 
explains,
 
"It
 
was
 
now
 
October
 
2009.
 
Willie
 
was
 
once
 
again
 
shy
 
and
 
withdrawn,
 
and
 
now
 
extra
 
wary
 
of 
 
men.
 
We
 
had
 
our
 
work
 
cut
 
out
 
for
 
us!"
 
But
 
the
 
staff 
 
and
 
volunteers
 
did
 
what
 
they
 
always
 
do
 
 –
 
showered
 
the
 
now
nine
years
old
 
tuxedo
 
boy,
 
Willie,
 
with
 
attention,
 
affection…and
 
food.
 
Over
 
the
 
next
 
three
 
years,
 
Willie
 
slowly
 
responded
 
to
 
all
 
the
 
loving
 
care
 
in
 
a
 
safe
 
environment.
 
Although
 
he
 
was
 
passed
 
over
 
for
 
adoption
 
several
 
times
 
 –
 
senior
 
cats
 
still
 
sometimes
 
take
 
longer
 
to
 
place
 
 –
 
he
 
began
 
again
 
to
 
come
 
out
 
of 
 
his
 
shell.
 
Finally,
 
in
 
May
 
of 
 
this
 
year,
 
Willie
 
found
 
his
 
permanent
 
home,
 
when
 
a
 
kind
 
and
 
affable
 
woman
 
named
 
Dee
 
adopted
 
him.
 
Dee,
 
who
 
has
 
no
 
other
 
pets,
 
reported
 
recently
 
that
 
Willie
 
“is
 
doing
 
great…going
 
through
 
a
 
whole
 
cooked
 
chicken
 
per
 
week
 
(white
 
meat
 
only,
 
thank
 
you
 
very
 
much!”)
 
 –
 
and
 
most
 
important,
 
he
 
is
 
loved
 
and
 
safe.
 
"We
 
truly
 
believe
 
that
 
Willie
 
and
 
Dee
 
were
 
meant
 
for
 
each
 
other
 
 –
 
and
 
the
 
Cat
 
Care
 
Society,
 
with
 
the
 
help
 
of 
 
its
 
friends
 
and
 
donors,
 
did
 
what
 
it
 
took
 
to
 
bring
 
them
 
together,"
 
Stoner
 
concludes.
 
Willie’s
 
story
 
had
 
its
 
share
 
of 
 
frustration
 
and
 
loss,
 
but
 
ultimately
 
it’s
 
the
 
same
 
uplifting
 
tale
 
of 
 
second
 
chances
 
and
 
tireless
 
devotion
 
by
 
the
 
Cat
 
Care
 
Society
 
caregivers.
 
CCS
 
does
 
not
 
receive
 
any
 
government
 
funding;
 
all
 
financial
 
support
 
comes
 
from
 
the
 
community
 
in
 
the
 
form
 
of 
 
private
 
donations.
