Favorite Nap Spot:
on my bed pillow
was on sci-diet maintance
she made me very happy during her short time in my life.
at my former work place (another vet clinic) a stray very pregnant torti was brought in. she was found by a client, who couldn't have her, and we took her in. she was tested for felv-fiv and was negitive, she was wormed and cleaned up and placed in a cage to wait out the rest of her preganacy...so she could have her kittens before we found her a home. it wasn't long, and she had 4 beautiful fluffy little bundles of fuzz. 2 torties..like herself (females), 1 smoke (male), and 1 orange tabby (female...which is rare as orange tabby is a male color). we all got to choose one...if we wanted a kitten, and i choose the orange tabby and named her Teddy-Bear. She came home with me when she was 6-8 weeks old.
she was well cared for. she was spayed, vaccinated and kept inside. she was also retested for felv-fiv, and tested negitive again. she grew into a beautiful long haired sweetheart. she was a joy to come home to after a hard day at work. i changed jobs shortly after she came home to live with me. i started work for another vet that was closer to home.
soon after Teddy-Bear turned 1 yr old, she started to appear lethargic off and on. she wouldn't eat, lost weight and was pale in color. we ran several tests and they didn't show any problems....but she wasn't right and acted sick. we put her on various medications....a few brightened her up, and then she would be ok again for awhile. then, without warning, it would happen all over again. when she was sick, her pcv (red blood count- packed cell volumne) would go from a healthy 36% down to 14% or lower. each time, with medications, we would pull her out of it and she would be ok for awhile again and her pcv would go back to normal. this went on until 1992. on 6-4-92, i woke up to a very sick kitty. i brought her into work for the last time...her pcv was 8%. her bone marrow shut completly down. i had her put to sleep to end her suffering.
it broke my heart. she was a special kitty to me. a best friend. a soul mate. she was my world. she is now in cat-heaven, and i'll see her someday again at the rainbow bridge.
"I still love you, Teddy-Bear..please wait at the bridge for me, i'll be there someday and we'll be together again."
