Biscuit’s legacy: the journey of Koi and Shark Finn
Remember Biscuit? We traveled across the world to rescue him and give him a chance at survival, for him we went above and beyond the call of duty, we placed our hopes and dreams of a better world into this tiny broken angel, and in the end he left us.
A couple of months later another of Biscuit’s siblings left us.. his name was Nemo. By then I was too raw to cry and I tried to suppress my emotions. I wasn’t ready to handle another death. Both Biscuit and Nemo suffered a genetic condition that affected the development of their bones. We suspect their fist sibling to pass, Fawn, may have also had the disease. There was nothing anyone in this world could do for them, but we tried…
But this post is not about Biscuit, Nemo and Fawn, it is about their legacy, the family they left behind.
Biscuit, Nemo and Fawn left four siblings behind, Shark Finn, Koi, Coral and Beluga. When they were rescued they were all in critical condition. We thought they wouldn’t be able to make it, but they did!.. During the last few months they have been living with Katy and her family, growing up strong and healthy, being treated like feline royalty. They are all that we have left of the two angels we lost, and for that, we treasure them in a very special way.
A special Facebook Page was set up to find homes for them and through, two of them, Shark Finn and Koi have found a wonderful home in Amsterdam (Holland).
Usually we would make an appeal to try to find a flight volunteer, someone already taking the trip that would act as flight parent. Using this system we have flown hundreds of animals home. But in this case the solution is not that easy. Koi and Shark Finn are in Savannah (Georgia) and no matter how hard we have tried it has been absolutely impossible to find someone that could act as flight parent. So the only way for them to go home is for us to buy their foster family a ticket so that she can travel to Holland and deliver them home safely.
And this is why I’m writing this post. Many of you met Biscuit and Nemo. helped us with their treatments and cried bitter tears facing the impossibility of saving them.
This is our chance to close the circle… we love them, we treasure them, but we don’t own them.. this our chance to give Koi and Shark Finn a final push so that they can go home together to continue living the lives Biscuit and Nemo couldn’t…
This is an special appeal, one that is specially moving for us. Please, if you can, help us send Koi and Shark Finn on their journey home. Every little helps…
Many many thanks
P.S…. because even in the midst of all this cruelty… there is HOPE
