Rafael’s wife, Clarisse, sent in so many adorable photos of Rafael & Horus that I have to post more than one, so extra bonus photos are after the jump.
Rafael and Clarisse already had 2 cats when they rescued Horus, a kitten who just turned 7 months old. Horus was found alone, starving, and with an eye infection. Although the other cats didn’t immediately fall in love with Horus, Rafael did. Rafael had to feed the kitten and give him medicine around the clock – even taking a day off work and sleeping next to the kitten and feeding him every half hour. Finally, Horus got better (in time for Rafael’s birthday, no less!)
Clarisse reports, “Since then, Rafael is Horus’ ‘mother’ as you can see in the pictures. Rafael even created a website dedicated to his kitten with videos and photos : http://horus-le-chat.blogspot.com/.” (the website is in French, so it’s perfect for those who are both ailurophiles and Francophiles).
