First Take

Yuma Sun - - NEWS - By Rox­anne Mole­nar, edi­tor

As we were eat­ing break­fast Wed­nes­day morn­ing, one of our neigh­bors knocked on our door. He asked us if we owned a gray cat, as there was an in­jured one perched on the edge of our yard.

We don’t have a cat, but this one had somehow man­aged to tan­gle with a cac­tus, and was cov­ered in lit­tle spines. I felt ter­ri­ble for that poor cat!

The man told me he was go­ing to check with the other neigh­bors, and if there was no owner, he was go­ing to catch that cat and get him to the vet for some TLC.

When I left for work a few min­utes later, I saw the man walk­ing up the street, cat car­rier in hand, with a very loud fe­line oc­cu­pant in­side.

I’m glad I live in a neigh­bor­hood where peo­ple are will­ing to get an an­i­mal the help it clearly needed! Thank you, neigh­bor!
