Arrival Story:
Flossy Mae adopted me 2 years ago, when I moved from Washington State to Georgia to be closer to family. I was going through an all-time low after living in the dreary Pacific Northwest, and Flossy (a stray cat outside my mother's home) decided I needed some TLC to get better. She and Buster made it their goal to make me smile again--and went way beyond that. On October 4, 2009, I came home to Flossy trying to drag herself onto the back porch. (She was originally a stray, so it was hard to convince her to to be an indoor kitty). My husband and I helped her into the house--noticing that her tail and back leg were not moving. She meowed painfully, and we got our things together and went straight over to the Veterinary Emergency Clinic. They took some x-rays, coming to the conclusion that she had sustained a fall of some sort and that her spine was injured. They gave her some pain medicine and sent us home--and made us an appointment with the local vet clinic for the morning. By morning, Flossy was paralyzed in both legs and her tail. The veterinarian didn't yield any better news for me in terms of her recovery. I had to make a decision that I've never had to make--and it has never hurt so bad to do anything. I stayed with her until the end, kissing her little forehead. I can't believe such a beautiful soul is gone from this world.
