After Natalie the Natcat left us in January, we were devestated, and missed her so. I volunteer for a group in NY-URGENT-Pets on Death Row. I get the pictures of cats before they are put up to try to be saved by the public. I got her picture, and in the picture she looked so like Natalie my breath was taken away. I knew Natalie had put her in our path. We immediately contacted the rescue we worked with and asked them to pull her for us.
On her original bio, she was listed as 6. The rescue told us they listed her on their intake sheet as 10. When we got her the bio said 12. The shelter also informed us she had a 'slight cold', well, she's been fighting a cold since we got her last week. However, last night she did eat on her own! YAY! They also told us she might be feral. She's not, she was simply petrified there.
We are so glad we were able to rescue her, and add her to our Clowder...she is our Miracle
When asking the Universe for clarification-it came. Ruffy's motto is 'TRUST THAT MIRACLES DO OCCUR'. When I saw her name, I knew!
She was found on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx. When we got her she had patches of fur missing form bad nutriton, a bad flea allrgy, bad ear mites, and a wound on her tail.
Her coat is now growing in, and she looks lovely....we think she's going to fit right in here.

We are sorry to report that Miri has made her journey to Rainbow Bridge.
In late May a lump was found on Miri that she had surgery for. After surgery, which was more extensive than originally thought, it was recommended by our vet that we pursue alternative treatment for Miri as her stomatitits was an immune compromised problem and might effect how well she reacted to Chemo.
She had an appointment with Smith Ridge which is known for it's wonderful treatments. She was treated there, but sadly, Last week we noticed that Miri seemed not herself. She wasn't as hearty with her appetite and she seemed to be bloated. We took her in on Thursday, to find that Miri was filling up with fluid-the cancer had spread. We had the fluid tapped but the vet said it might buy her time.
Saturday she was in obvious discomfort. We brought her back to the vet. The fluid had come back and there was more of it. The tapping was only working for a very short time. As it's an uncomfortable procedure, and we wanted her to have a good life, not a painful existence, we elected to release her
It was the hardest thing I ever did. Miri was my girl. She fought so hard to survive. She finally had her happily ever. To lose her was devastating. But I couldn't be selfish. Though I couldn't explain it to her, I knew that the road ahead wouldn't have been one that would have been what we wanted for her.
Miri was with us for a year and 8 months. She came from death row, she finally had a bed, a life, was cherished and loved. Cancer isn't fair. It took her away-but it didn't lessen what we had.
For anyone on the fence about adopting a cat from death row-please don't hesitate. Miri is much loved and much missed. But one thing is for sure-there will be another pulled in her honor.
See you later my girl. See you later. Know that Momma and Daddy love you.
From Mom Deb of the Ridgewood Clowder.

I feel like it's the first day of the rest of my life every day! I am learning that things are ok here! There is plenty to eat and drink, plenty of soft warm places to sleep, and there are other cats around here-don't know what to make of them-but little by little I'm doing ok.
Thank you Diary gal for choosing me to be Diary of the Day! It means alot! I was the cat that was on death row-and I made it out! I was sick and now I'm well. I could be any of us-and like to think that I'm the poster cat for cats in shelters-beneath a grizzled coat lay shining fur, nursed back to health, I'm amazing-I can run, and jump and play and I am healing inside and out.
Oh, I hope others will be brave and foster and adopt-I know I was so lucky!
And now, I am here! A cat of the day!!!!
thank you all! thank you life!
I love you!
