this miracle kitty

flora is 14 now. last october she stopped eating. she's a tiny cat, and when she lost weight you could feel her ribs, her hip bones. nothing we could do would get her to eat. we took her to the vet and she was diagnosed with kidney failure. she stayed overnight on an iv drip and came home hallowe'en day with medication. at first we tempted her with meds mixed with gravy and licked off of a spoon. eventually she was eating on her own (special low protein wet food from the vet) with her meds added morning and evening. a year later she is thriving. still tiny. but energetic and content. our miracle kitty.

She is a lovely cat, very serene and poised.

It's wonderful when you can nurse a special kitty back to health!

The vet suggesting having our Mr. Theo put to sleep a few years ago when he had a severe Urinary Tract Infection. We chose to fight for his life, and he's still a charming little fella at 15 years of age now, the picture of health.

Cheers to happy healthy kitties!
