"Uggie" is one of the resident cats on Koppick Knob. Many of the cats were feral cats at one time, but my father and his two nieces have make it a personal goal to tame and nurture all the homeless cats. Uggie was the product of feral cats. He had the unfortunate luck to be attacked by a predator when he was very small. My father managed to catch him and take him to the vet. No one thought he would live, yet eight weeks later; Dad brings back a cat that would require care through out the day. When Dad went to this vet, he had a set amount that he would spend on the cat. Even the vets in the area are wonderful, because this vet only charged Dad the agreed upon amount after 8 weeks of care. Due to the extent of the injuries, Dad nurture the kitten for almost a year.. Everyone that saw this kitten thought he was so ugly he was cute. Thus we always called him "Uggie" Now, my father has a cat that thinks he is a little human. I simply love Koppick Knob- it is a place of nurture; a place of acceptance; and a place of friendship.
