Snuggling, dreaming, peeking out the window, sleeping in the sun, tanning, chewing on mommy's hair, opening cupboard doors and letting them slam closed, sprinting laps through the apartment, watching my 4 little goldfish sisters veerrryy closely
the vacuum cleaner, closed doors, being rudely awakened from a nap, when mom wears a hat
pencils (unsharpened), highlighters, shoe laces, fuzzy balls, anything with feathers
Favorite Nap Spot:
in the sun, snuggled up by the heater, in the window, under the covers, on the couch
Purina, bugs, yogurt, mommy's hair
Opening cupboard doors (even if they are duct taped closed), cleaning the outside of the fish aquarium with my tongue
Zoe was my 24th birthday present. We adopted Zoe from a shelter a few days after she had been dropped at their door, starving and abused. She had various cuts and scratches on her body, and appeared to have gone several days without food. She was declawed, yet had clearly been forced to stay outside, where she had no form of self defense. We fell in love with her instantly, brought her home, cleaned her up, and showered her with love and affection. Today, she is bright, active, healthy, affectionate, spoiled rotten, and a total princess.
2005 was a difficult year for Zoe. In July, she developed a severe bladder infection and was rushed to her vet. A series of x-rays, urinalysis and ultrasounds revealed that she had 4 massive bladder stones. She was diagnosed with Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease, and as there was a major risk of urethral blockage, she was immediately admitted to the clinic for emergency surgery. Thankfully, the surgery was a success, and she completely recovered in only a few weeks. The stones are struvite, which means that if they reappear, there are options which do not require surgery. It is very rare for a female cat to have FLUTD, and even more rare for a female to suffer urethral blockage. Luckily, with a controlled diet of medicated food, the disease can be controlled, and further stones can be avoided.
As if that wasn't enough for Zoe to handle, in November she was diagnosed with a minor respiratory problem, possibly asthma. This too is manageable. Throughout her health problems, she has remained active, cheerful, affectionate and playful. I receive such inspiration from her! I thank God every day that I have such a beautiful soul in my life.
