Arrival Story: I wanted to find a cat to keep Moxie company. I saw Mi-Cha on the shelter's web page and had to see her in person. She has the cutest face! Before I adopted her someone dumped her along a highway and she was hit by a car. She had a spinal trauma but the nice lady who rescued her took her to a number of dr.'s who really helped her. She runs and jumps now and there is hardly any sign of her injury.
Bio: Mi-Cha is truly a miracle cat. In March of 2004 at the age or 3 she went to a special clinic to see if she could have a stone removed. She was in kidney failure and there was a thought that by taking out the stone it may help her regain function of one of her kidneys. However upon ultra sound the very expensive vets said that both of her kidneys were diseased. They said she wouldn't live unless we got her to the Vet hospital at U of Penn and had her get a kidney transplant. Because it would cost around $7000 and she still may not live we decided to give her the best life we could at home. Our local vet said we should give her sub-q fluids and put her on a low protein diet. We did both of those things and today she is still acting like a happy healthy kitten and her kidney values are holding out in the high normal range. We love our vet and are so thankful for all that she has done for us. Without her Mi-Cha wouldn't be here today- the vets at the specialist clinic said the fluid would not help and they were soooo wrong and we are glad we didn't listen to them.
She is the sweetest most loveable cat. She loves everyone she meets and meows at them and puts her paw on their leg because she wants them to pet her and play with her. Her favorite person is her daddy. She loves him so much that she won't eat her food if he is at home unless the food is put near him!
