A Gift for your donation
If you donate $25 or more, you get a 2.75" x 3.5" ornament of Star (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.
Star is a robust beauty whom her dad, Melvin, calls his guardian, bodyguard, and all-around cuddly friend. Since she’s been adopted, some 10 years ago, Star never fails to follow Melvin with her stout legs characteristic of British Shorthairs every chance she gets. Melvin, who is legally blind and has had his share of health issues, says that his life without this quiet lady "would go down the drain."
Even though Star is on the pudgy side, she can be very finicky with food. She is a lover of chicken, turkey, or seafood flavors for wet food, but will turn her nose up at anything beef. And, believe it or not, Star does not like catnip or cat toys, making her "a real teetotaler," Melvin says.
Star is definitely a perceptive and loving kitty. If Melvin isn’t feeling well, she doesn’t leave his side. She generally lays down with him on the couch or the bed and waits for belly and ear rubs, or a nice long brushing session. This lucky gal may get anything between two and three brushings a day.
A true diva, but still a lady to her core, Star is quite agreeable to everyone she meets, unless it’s time for a “pawdicure.” All that grabbing and cutting makes her lose her temper and growl a bit — after all no one is perfect!
Star has received help from Phinney’s for many years, receiving food deliveries and vet care on us, including treatment for a urinary infection. Melvin says he and Star are "very grateful" for the help Phinney’s has provided them with over the years.
“I don’t know how I would manage without Phinney’s volunteers and financial help.”
Help Star continue to be happy and safe with Melvin
