Arrival Story: November 12, 2005...my humans were on the way to the mall to spend money on themselves...they passed the Petmobile from Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and decided to turn around and take a look (smart humans)...they wanted a doggie (not so smart humans)...looked at the kitties and I came to the door of my cage and MEEOOOWED at mom...she held me and I clung to her and gave her a new furlook (I was shedding a lot back then)...they fell in love with me and brought me home with them. All the money they were going to spend at the mall, they spent on me!! Very smart humans after all!!!
Bio: Maggie had been at the shelter since December 2004. She had been adopted twice, brought back once because "she needed too much attention, second time "she startled easily". Lame, lame excuses! We gave her all the time she needed to adjust and to realize she has a forever home where she will be loved, cared for and spoiled. She's loving, gentle, affectionate and very regal. She's brought love and happiness to us after the loss of our precious little 18 1/2 yr. old Yorkie, Ralphie. I believe Ralphie knew she was the perfect kitty for us and led us to her and to her sister Aggie.
I went to the ophthalmologist and after a thorough exam he said I have progressive pigmentation into the cornea, this is what he's calling it because, like so many things with cats, he doesn't know what is causing it or what it really is.
He prescribed an ointment and steroid drops and to be re-checked in four months unless my pawrents notice a drastic change, in which case they need to take me back right away.
He said he does not think it's cancer, he didn't say it wasn't. It will probably continue growing and could interfere with my eyesight but for now, it is not bothering me.
Mom notices me sleeping a lot more but that's because I'm going to be 12 and I have CRF. But I have my moments of unbridled joy & energy and I have a wonderpurr appetite and for now - for today - life is good and that's what matters.
I have something on my right eye, it looks like a white growth on my eye and perhaps this is what's making my eye tear up so much.
My pawrents took me to my wonderful vet Dr. Wood and she's not sure what this growth is so she's referred me to an ophthalmologist so I will be seeing Dr. Cutler this coming Monday, December 23rd. My pawrents are hoping and praying it is nothing serious - will you join them in praying for me?
