Arrival Story:
Copper's story is an interesting one! I had taken in two stray queens, who gave birth here in my home a day apart. One of the mothers, a Siamese named Sami, abandoned the whole lot. I was bottlefeeding and taking care of them myself when the second litter was born. I contacted a Siamese Rescue Group to try to find Sami a home, and then in turn, contacted me the next day with an emergency. Turned out there was a woman that had e-mailed them emergent, she had kittens trapped under her home in the insulation! I drove over as fast as I could, climbed under the home, and pulled out three gorgeous babies. Copper was the first to come out! Apparently, the woman's neighbor is a hoarder, and the county will do nothing. He had already told her he usually killed the kittens by drowning them. The mother was nowhere to be seen, the kittens were starved, and I was not going to let the man kill them, so I brought them home.

Copper has been tested and has the Feline Herpes Virus, as well as Colici Virus. This virus is normally only brought on when the cat becomes stressed. It presents flu-like symptoms that are easily controlled. Her condition does NOT require medication, only in the event that a cold or flu becomes an issue. For the most part, the vets allow the cold to run its course, barring no complications such as pneumonia. The virus is contagious during an "outbreak" so it is perferred Copper be in a one cat household, or a household with other Herpes positive cats. She is not damaged goods, and make a great baby!
