Petting above her tail.
Favorite Nap Spot:
The bar stool. A.K.A.: Her tall chair.
Chicken and cheese.
She can sit on command, open doors, and make anyone (even cat haters) fall in love with her.
I moved to my dad's. He told me I could have any pet I wanted, as long as I took care of him/her... I found Sophi. My step-mom's sister's cat had a litter about 6 weeks before I moved in with my dad... I went back to see if my favorite was there, and lo and behold: The runt that looked different. XD The one I actually wanted was the only one left...
The beginning months were great. Fun kitten times. Adolescent stage was a lil rough, but we managed. Well, I wanted to get her spayed. Knew that from the beginning... She went into heat once and I said that it was time. My dad wanted her de-clawed as well... I didn't care either way, I saw no harm in either decision... So, we took her to this old family vet... And I really mean OLD. Late 80's. Worst decision of my life. He gave her a health check and some vaccinations... Then time for sedation... She HATED it. Took 3 of us to hold her down for all shots. He sedated her, let her sit for a lil while, and she still wasn't out... He sedated her 3 more times. Enough to knock out a German Shepard, he said... He did the spaying and de-clawing in one setting... We got her home, and she wasn't recovering. The skin wasn't stitched back correctly after spaying... Left a bulging scar. She wouldn't drink on her own for 2 weeks... I had to give her water through an eye dropper and force her to swallow... Couldn't get her to swallow food for a week. She was skin and bones and completely unresponsive to all noise, touch, sight, or anything... We were just waiting for her to die any minute. I was told that we should take her to be put down... I refused to give up. I was right. She made a full recovery... I feel like I saved her life... And years later, she saved mine. I was being bullied at school and came home to be abused by my dad and new step-family... I was suicidal. Everytime I went to kill myself, she was cuddling up to me. Nuzzling, licking, purring, meowing, listening... Just letting me know that she wasn't ready to give up on me either... We saved each other. And thank each other everyday by giving the best gift we could possibly give each other: Love.
