Cat of the week: Cinco de Meow

Look who’s lounging — it’s Cinco de Meow!

Crash’s Landing


Each week WKTV features an adoptable cat from Crash’s Landing or Big Sid’s Sanctuary. Both cat rescue organizations were founded by Jennifer Petrovich, DVM (Dr. Jen), who is on staff at Clyde Park Veterinary Clinic (4245 Clyde Park Ave SW).

The frigid and brutal winter of 2013-2014 was certainly beyond problematic for many a stray in our area. When this beautiful black and white boy showed up in February half-frozen, a kind lady in the community knew it was time to take matters into her own hands and bring him indoors where it was safe and warm. Although a nice neighbor had been feeding him, with temps plummeting and no end to the ice and snow in sight, she knew this guy was in trouble. Not only was he an intact male, he had been beaten up and bullied and his immune system was so compromised he was terribly ill with a nasty respiratory infection.

Crash’s Landing and Big Sid’s Sanctuary have a common mission: To take at-risk stray cats off the streets of the Greater Grand Rapids area, provide them with veterinary care and house them in free-roaming, no-kill facilities until dedicated, loving, permanent homes can be found.
