Linda Bruno – Ferndale, Pennsylvania
Mention “kitten” and “injured” in the same sentence, and there is no discussion: Linda’s your gal. But she had no idea that a tiny, golden-eyed kitten she committed to foster would teach her so much about handicapped animals…and about life. Grover has since worked his way into the hearts of many people. In turn, Linda has shared his heartwarming story with readers in Almost Perfect, encouraging them to consider the importance of handicapped animals in our lives.
These days, Linda makes sure Grover makes it safely through thunderstorms without being terrorized. If it storms in the night, Grover will scratch on his bedroom door until Linda comes to get him. He spends the duration of the storm with Linda, dozing peacefully. But as soon as the storm is over, he’s ready to go back to his own bed, and lets her know!
