Arrival Story:
His mother, Mah-Mah, was living under our trailer. We had taken in two of her kittens earlier in 2000, but she was still too feral, and she ended up pregnant again. By the time her second litter was weaned, we were able to get her into a carrier and had her spayed. In 2005, we learned that Remy has a heart murmur. In fall of 2006, we learned his heart condition is getting worse. It's likely the same kind of enlarged heart that killed his brother Quinn. Remy is on atenolol, which he takes easily tucked in a Pill Pocket or a Pounce Hairball Treat. We hope this gains us a few more years with him. Over his last couple of years, Remy began showing high liver enzymes, so he was getting monthly depo injections and weekly B-12 shots. His skin got really thin and he injured his legs a few times. Once another of our cats nipped him and it took weeks for his back to heal. He had lost a lot of weight, too, so we were happy when he seemed to gain a little. Soon, though, it became apparent that he had a problem. It was fluid building up in his abdomen. We searched our hearts and talked with our vet, and we decided decided to let him go.
