Mighty Lou

The story: Mighty Lou is a deaf and diabetic cat that Cat Depot has been trying to find a permanent home for.  Because of these issues, it’s very difficult to find an adoptive family.  Nancy volunteered to take Mighty Lou and provide him a loving foster home until Cat Depot is able to find a permanent home.

UPDATE:  Nancy has adopted Might Lou and he is now a member of her family!

Nancy has had two diabetic cats before and being well aware of the responsibility of taking care of a diabetic cat like Mighty Lou, she felt that she could provide him with the love and care that he needs. Up to this day, Nancy happily cares for Mighty Lou and he is healthier than ever thanks to Nancy’s generosity.



EARS Animal Rescue Adoptathon

The featured attraction at EARS Animal Rescue adoptathon was Nancy Colby painting Dice.  Dice is a large black and white male who was hard to place due to a special diet.  That day, Dice was successfully adopted and the owner went home with both Dice and the portrait that Nancy generously painted.
