Dear Folks and Furs,
A miracle is needed for one that is a living, breathing, and wondrous miracle...for a very kind, beyond belief family.
This family has made my mom cry. You see, they stepped forward, after two very special needs kittens were rescued from Death Row. The kittens, Andy and Bella were on 'the list' and were pulled by rescuers. But then came the hard part-finding a 'forever' home for them. You see, Bella is blind and Andy has hydrocephalus.
A family that should have come out of a fairy tale-with a little boy-a baby really-found out about these kittens and immediately WANTED them. You see, they are very special people. They have other animals, and wanted their son to know that love can be 'special'. And it is.
All should have a happy ending, right? Well...that's never how stories go...there always has to be the scary part..and there is a scary part...
A couple nights ago little Andy became non responsive. He went overnight from a playing, happy kitten to a kitten that appeared comatose. A vet suggested euthanizing him. But his mom and dad were not going to let that happen.
They reached out to the rescue community, and people began to share, and donate and share, and donate. Love and money flowed like honey.
And Andy got seen by a 'specialist' hours away...a picture shows a comatose kitten laying in the arms of a bewildered little boy...'Andy Come Back'.....
His kitten sister Bella, bewildered and blind searched for him everywhere, and cried and cried....but he had to be at the vet hospital-
and then.....the good vets, the amazing vets...made a miracle....
Andy revived!!! He came home yesterday.
This is a fragile situation. Tomorrow Andy is scheduled for surgery. The vets must relieve the pressure by placing a shunt. The vets are positive and hopeful, and his family are too. Andy is responsive, but it's fragile and without the surgery, this could happen again, as the fluid will continue to build. With the shunt, the chances are excellent that Andy will not have a problem again and will be a healthy little kitten.
What is love? Is it a little boy, his hands gentle on soft and white fur, a small kitten one vet at CACC deemed 'mentally retarded' and 'unadoptable', marking him 'New Hope' only, slating him for Death Row....and across the miracle of a million flashing circuits, an angel named Trudy and Lyn and Michelle and...well, angels who are folks working through the night to bring these kittens out of the bowels of hell...and succeeding....and that kitten, purring beside a smaller black and white one, also saved, in the arms of a little child...
Tonight, I reach across the universe to my Angels, my feline angels who are at the Bridge, and my Angels here, and my feline friends and their folks. I ask good energy, prayers, and if you can spare anything for this little cat's surgery, it would be a stairway of light towards someplace that wonder lives-a radiant band of light that surrounds this little kitten, and perhaps, really, all of us.
Tomorrow this little kitten goes in for surgery.....
and I will purr and reach up with power of the paw to add my purr to all of those who send love and light to Andy-to Bella-to the family.
I include the You Caring link....if you 'follow' Trudy Schilder on Facebook, you will see the details of what is going on with Andy.
For I must believe...Trust that Miracles Do Occur.....
And we are miracles in fur.....
love and light, my friends, love and light

I too have been following this kitten and it's amazing the love and care he's receiving, especially from Michelle's infant boy Alex. The love and gentleness he's shown to both Andy and Bella, is truly amazing. And they love him! Bella greets him every morning! And she's BLIND! That said, they TRULY need donations. The surgery alone is $6000, never mind all the other vet visits he's had and follow up care he'll need. Please, if you can, donate. Donate and share. Even if it's only a few dollars, it adds up and helps enormously. He's a special little kitty who deserves a chance at life. On behalf of Michelle, who would never ask herself, I and the facebook community who fell in love with this little guy thank you!
Casey is actually Norma Segarra. For some reason it wouldn't let me post my comment with my name alone, I had to post as one of my cats! :-/
Sending Andy lotsa purrs.
We do not have FB - wondered how the little one was doing. Well I hope.
