Arrival Story:
My mommy adopted me from the Humane Society because Cosmo was lonely without a kitty companion. I had a rough start in life, as I was very sick when my mom first brought me home. I only weighed 1.6 pounds! I wouldn't eat on my own and the doctors were worried I wouldn't survive, but my mom refused to give up on me! After lots of TLC and weeks of hand feeding, I finally was healthy enough to be introduced to Cosmo, and we are great friends! Because I was hand raised by my human mom, I am especially friendly and people-oriented. I love to be wherever my mom is and am pretty much her shadow!

Bio:
I was temporarily blind because of a bad reaction to anesthetic during a routine dental cleaning. For some reason, my blood pressure dropped during the procedure, which caused hypoxia (lack of oxygen) in my brain. This caused several seizures which damaged my brain where I process vision. At first, I could not eat or drink on my own and I couldn't use a litterbox. Now, I have made a FULL RECOVERY! I can see and am back to my normal, funny, crazy self. I want to let all the kitty moms out there know that if they are going through this same situation that FULL RECOVERY DOES HAPPEN! Although I still have stress-related seizures very rarely, I am able to live an otherwise normal life. I am living proof of the power of the paw and support from Catsters and love from my mom. I am her little miracle and she is so proud of me! If anyone has questions about my story, please feel free to ask! My mom is happy to offer words of support, information and encouragement!

Thank you so much to all of you for the birthday wishes! My mom says she cannot believe I'm 3 years old already!

Alot has happened since I wrote last. Mom made a big life decision and decided to switch careers, which involved going back to school. Unfortunately, her dad is deathly allergic to cats and she could not keep me with her when she moved home for the year, so I'm staying with mom's friend, Auntie Layal. She loves me and has lots of other animals and also is a vet tech so she can attend to my special needs. Mom says we will be together again soon (hopefully this fall when she's done with her nursing program) but I have to say I've enjoyed having my very own bedroom all to myself at Layal's, and also have made lots of new friends! Mom comes to see me as often as she can, but I'm doing very well and haven't had a seizure in months! I'm just the sweetest, cuddliest little ball of fur you can imagine, and although my mom misses me terribly, I'm glad she has good friends who were willing to take care of me for the year :)

 

Hi, everyone!

Wow, I know it's been a long time since I've been on my page, but I wanted to tell everyone hello and give you all an update.

We take things one day at a time here in our house. It turns out the accident did have some lasting effects on me, and the damage that was done cannot be reversed, but I do just fine and don't know I'm different! Mom just has to be careful who she lets into the apartment because I get stressed out so easily that sometimes I have seizures. The part of my brain that was damaged has, according to the doctors, died and been rewired. Mom always knows I've had a seizure because I cannot see for a few hours. My vision always comes back, and I've had many visits from many doctors that say I'm otherwise in excellent health. I've had everything, from my blood to my liver tested for problems, but without a CT or spinal tap we'll never really know how much of my brain was damaged.

So mom tries her best to keep my house calm and quiet...

I guess I'm just a special kitty! My mom already knew that, though ;)

 

finally!

I am back to playing and cuddling with Oliver!! I know he missed me and mom is so happy to see her boys getting along again. We're a happy kitty house once more!
