Hawk’s story is one of pain and misery. Ellen found him in a 7′ × 8′ cage that had almost 7" of fecal matter and urine on the floor. The poor cat could go nowhere to get relief. He had urine burns all over his body and face and was approximately 200 pounds underweight.

When Ellen told me his story, she also told me that he litterally crawled through all that muck to get to her and her kind voice and eyes. He and a number of other cats were rescued that day and his survival was touch and go for a time.

One of the reasons that his name is “Hawk” is because Ellen feels as though he can now, finally SOAR!!

Hawk is healthy now, except for that missing piece of his tail (lost long ago to a cage door slamming down on it).. and whenever he hears Ellen’s voice – that’s where he wants to be.
These animals DO NOT MAKE GOOD PETS.. that’s why places like Noah’s are in existence. If people would just think before they buy that cute LITTLE cub.. life would be easier on all of us especially the animals. After all.. they didn’t ask to be in the situation they are.. and there are far to many unscrupulous people out there that are in it for the money..

All proceeds from any sales will be donated to Noah’s Lost Ark Sanctuary for the care and feeding of the animals

    Beautiful Hawk, the pain, abuse and barbaric deeds that you endured are unforgivable. I am glad to read that now you enjoy a deserved healthy life.

    Human greed, ignorance, poverty, dark interests and unscrupulous people inflict great suffering to wild creatures. Say No to the illegal trade of wild creatures. The snatching, poaching, abusing, profiting, decimating and taking of souls that had deserved to be left untouched is something that ought not exist.

    Education, awareness and the understanding of where wild creatures belong to is critical to fight the miseducation and false message those obcure interests intentionally propagate.

    Thank you, Barb, for adding lovely Hawk along his message and your generous pledge to Art for Conservation.
