Favorite Food: She likes most foods, but is crazy about her Whisker Lickins treats
Skills: Fetches-she like crumpled balls of paper or rubberbands best
Arrival Story: I had recently lost Misty (cat) and was not ready for a new child, but a lady at work was trying to find a home for kittens and brought her in saying I could take her for a few days and bring her back if I changed my mind. Of course, Snuggle has been with me since.
Bio: Snuggle was dignosed with Chronic Renal Failure in March 2005, but takes her meds like a trooper and is still my loving baby (even if she is a momma only girl). She lost an eye to cancer when she was seven and I was devastated, but she was a brave girl and went on about her business as if nothing was wrong. I have learned a lot from my tiny angel.
I spent over 17 years with my mom and today I had to say goodbye. I have been so brave fighting my illnesses, but today I could not breathe and mom learned I had lung tumors that we did not know about. I could not breathe without oxygen and mom held me and gave me some treats and then let me go. She is so sad without me.
Wow, mom went to work today and had an e-mail saying that our Shutterfly book was being featured in the pets section. We are so happy. We had no idea. Mom was making it for our grandma for Mother's Day and has been working so hard, but she did not know if it was good enough to be a featured book.
Mom misses Liza so much and well, I will be 17 next month. She wanted to finish it before anything happened to me, that would make it too hard.
If any of you would like to see our book, there is a link on each of our pages.
Mom is so proud of us. She wanted to do our book in a way that would show just how special we are. Hopefully she managed to do that.
Tomorrow, March 30, 2007 will mark two years since I was diagnosed with chronic renal failure (CRF). Mom was afraid she would lose me, but she should have known I was not going without a fight.
I have suffered some back problems in the past few months, but my kidney failure is stable and I am as much of a brat as ever.
I have been a good girl though. I take my meds every day as long as mom gives me cat treats with them.
Mom found all of these wonderful cat groups because of my kidney failure. She went out searching for info on CRF and ended up finding more than she could have imagined. Now I have all of these great cat friends and mom gets and gives advice to other cat families with CRF.
Who knew that my getting sick would lead to all of this. Mom is counting on us being together for a long time still and she is so happy that I am doing so well after two years.
