Arrival Story: A friend of my son's was moving and needed a home for Tottsie. Since I already had a Himalayan, he thought she would fit right in. She was declawed and fixed, so would be NO trouble. First thing that happened was that she developed (0r already had) a bladder stone which had to be surgically removed.
Bio: About a year after the bladder stone, I noticed a small cyct on her lower neck area which turned out to be cancer. A vet friend told me these tumors were usually very aggressive and even with removal, she would be dead in 6 months. That was 6 years ago. The friend has since died, but Tottsie is still going strong. Watch out for FREE cats. They are expensive!
