My name is Boo, actually named by a neighbor for Boo Radley in “To Kill a Mockingbird.” My mom saw me on the way to Artscape. They went the wrong way and I was in the project area…not a nice place at all for a kitty. She saw me drinking from the storm drain and all of sudden said to my daddy, ‘STOP, I HAVE TO GET HIM’. It was very hot, like 90 degrees. Dad pulled over and my mom came with canned food. I ran to her, thinking “YUMMY!” My dad kept circling the block and asked my mom ‘What are you going to do with him?’ and she said, ‘I can’t leave him here! I WAS SO HAPPY TO HEAR THIS! She scooped me up in her arms and put me in the back seat. They were not so sure this would work, but I lied down and purred, the whole way home. That’s me, the Boozie.

They got me home and from then on I was my mom’s special baby. I’ve even learned to walk on a leash. I love walking so much; I’ll even go in the rain and snow! Needless to say, I love my mom and dad. Now there’s a new chapter in my story, diabetes. I know my family, and Dr. Esra, will take the very best care of me. I’m one happy kitty and I am so happy to win this contest too.
