This late model sedan with the company name – Last Chance Cat Rescue – got me thinking. I’m wondering: what exactly is the business model? Okay, clearly, they’re in the business of finding cats; plenty of kitties go missing, so someone’s got to track them down. There’s definitely a market for the team at Second Chance.
What I find charming – really, actually inspiring – is how quixotic their quest is. Really, driving around in an ancient car, looking for lost cats? Someone’s going to turn a profit doing that? That’s the thing: this is a business based (I’m assuming) on sheer love and hope, not a cold-blooded calculation to lure in the lucre.
You have to have a damn big heart to drive around in your aging boat of a Lincoln, at 7 miles per gallon, keeping your eyes open for lost kitty. Really, I do sincerely hope the Second Chance folks are good at what do. I wish them all the good luck and patience in the world. We and all the kitties in the world need a second chance!
