Nubbins and His Bird Buddy Pose for 2014 Calendar

When Nubbins the cat was found, he was emaciated, riddled with birdshot, and had tumors hanging from both of his ears. But the minute he was removed from his carrier by his rescuers, he started purring. He knew he was finally safe; relief was here at last.

Dr. Patricia Wagner, a veterinarian at the ASPCA Animal Hospital, performed surgery on the sweet feline and fell in love with his kind demeanor. Soon after, Nubbins joined Dr. Wagner’s household. He is incredibly grateful for his second chance and gets along swimmingly with the family’s resident parakeet.

In fact, kitty and bird are stars of the 2014 ASPCA calendar. Check out this adorable behind-the-scenes video of Nubbins sitting for his photo shoot.

Dr. Wagner, you are an angel. Thank you for your big, loving heart. All creatures with whom we share this planet, should be treated with respect for the lives they must lead. May we all live together in peace and understanding, and when necessary give some help along the way.

Peg, you couldn't have said it better. Thank you Dr. Wagner, for giving that sweet boy a chance to enjoy his life and receive your love. You're as special as he is.

I think this is just a wonderful thing Dr. Wagner did for Nubbins.
He sure deserves the best for what he had been put through.

Just read Nubbins' story on my new ASPCA calendar, which is even more unbelievable than what's told in this clip. Thank God for animal lovers like Dr. Wagner and thank God for all people who care for the welfare of animals. Enjoy your great new life, Nubbins. You deserve the very best.

Dr. Wagner, I wished there was more people like you in the world. Little Nubbins had a Guardian Angel on his furry shoulder! You are a wonderful person Doc!!
