Dog with cleft lip lingered in shelter, gets new life as therapy pet

It is nice. My Charlie (a cat) had a cleft lip but his palate was not affected. The Vet examined him and indicated that cosmetic surgery would make little difference, that it would only be for ascetic reasons that it would have to have been done. Although he often had sores in the area of the cleft, from chewing or food, so each day I carefully cleaned the area.

When I first met Charlie at the Vet's he was the only one of his siblings who had not been adopted. All of the other six were. I adopted him on the spot, he was a great cat and went with us everywhere. Even on vacation, camping, he saw the ocean, the forests, lakes and rivers, he went in a boat, he swam a little bit now and then. He could hide in a few inches of grass and disappear, I often found him sound asleep in the wildflowers I planted. He lived for nineteen years, a good long life.
