My friend Carmen, whom I visited this weekend in South Carolina, rescued Turbo when she was visiting her brother in Dallas last October. Her brother’s friend saw someone toss the cat out of a car at a Bank of America parking lot. David, knowing Carmen never met a cat or dog she didn’t like, worked on her for just 30 minutes on the phone until she agreed to pick up Turbo en route from our wedding in Sequin. She said if he was a male, she would name him Turbo, because her late husband, George, wanted to name a previous cat Turbo and she wouldn’t let him! Turbo turns one year old at the end of this month and is a wild-eyed, crazy loving cat! When he was finally captured, he was hiding in the engine of a car. In this shot, Turbo has decided that the stack of expensive rugs that Carmen bought from Izmir, Turkey on her recent cruise was set up just for him.

God bless Carmen and Turbo. People can be so cruel. An ojibwe friend of mine told of a dog story. Someone let the dog out of a van as she watched them drive away. The dog was so confused watching the van drive away. My friend took pity on the dog and brought him into the house. The dog became the love of her grandson who lived with her. It just made me weep to hear your story and hers.

That really is so sad. I don’t know how people can be so cruel to animals. It’s tough to hear about things like that.
