I’d just lost Cassie after 15 years. The last thing I wanted was another kitty, but I passed a pet store I liked and decided to just look and I swear I heard the word rescue in my head. There was a beautiful feral calico kitty 12 weeks old. I asked to hold her, she was terrified! But when I held her she looked up into my eyes and she squeezed her eyes shut & I knew it would be alright. We brought her home & couldn’t touch her for over a month. Slowly we were able to gain her trust. I remember the first time she got petted. I used peacock feather down her back and her head came up as if to say Hey! That feels good. It didn’t take long after that and you wouldn’t believe she was the same cat, so very loving to everyone, but she was very sensitive and & had bad reactions to most medicines. We called her our “Bubble Kitty”. She had special needs & we did everything we could think of to keep her safe and healthy. In May 2005 she had dental work done and the vet gave her Metacam pain medicine causing renal failure. We pulled her though that. Then beginning in April 2009 she seemed to get, we thought lazier, we took her to the vet and they told us our baby had Leukemia! Within 2 weeks she was gone. It broke our hearts; she was only 9 years old! We cried buckets. I can only think and hope that because we took so much care with her because she was “sensitive” that helped her live to be 9 years.
