If you donate $25 or more, you get a 2.75" x 3.5" ornament of Man II (with hanging ribbon), painted on 140lb archival watercolor paper by illustrator and artist Lisa Nelson. She will write your preferred message on the back.
At checkout, we offer to either hang it on The Phinney's Angels Tree until the end of January, 2021, or mail it now to you or anyone you would like. The ornaments hung on the tree are laminated. Visit the Phinney's Angels Tree at The Pierce Park at 17 Weston Rd, Lincoln, MA.
Six years ago, Phinney’s helped treat all eight pets of a very low-income family in Salem, and re-home several of their cats. Wendall had recently lost his beloved black cat, Man, and Phinney’s offered him this huge kitty with a lustrous black coat, whom the family agreed to part with. As soon as Wendall saw him, he was sure: Man II had arrived!
These were some big pawprints to fill. And the Universe provided. This sturdy, quiet guy fit right into his new home. Man II is now twelve years old, and provides Wendall with much-needed companionship, while dad cares for his ill mother. And although Wendall describes Man II as a cat who doesn’t seek too much attention, they have developed a strong bond.
“When he needs me, he comes around. It’s a good relationship. I just call him a really cool cat,” says Wendall.
Wendall explains that Man II has been wonderful, since this is a very independent cat whom he can count on as a steady force when Wendall is feeling anxious or stressed.
Although Man II has not suffered any medical emergencies under Wendall's excellent care, he still describes his experience with Phinney’s as “lifesaving.”
"They’re actually cat savers,” says Wendall, who can’t imagine his life without Man II, and is grateful to Phinney’s for helping make that friendship happen, after so many years of support with vet care and supplies for his past kitty friends.
Help Man II continue to be happy and safe with Wendall
