Arrival Story:
We adopted MiMi on October 23, 2005 after a week of tense worry. We had put in an adoption application at a rescue and then received a call that she had health problems. We found out that she is one of the few kitties that has feline heartworms. This means she can live a realitively normal life as long as we can control the symptoms, which for her are breathing problems. Being asthmatic, there was no way I was going to reject a wheezing kitty. MiMi now takes daily oral steriods for her lungs. She will be fine as long as she can outlive the heartworms and there are no side effects when they die. This could cause serious problems, even sudden death. UPDATE: MiMi's condition has been very stable. She's now on flovent inhaled steriod instead of a pill. We are fairly confident she has outlived her heartworms and her breathing problems are just related to damage done during the infection. Dr. Grant at Scaredy Cat Hospital has been great!

MiMi was found at a gas station by Safe Harbor for Animals in Somerville, MA in August of 2005. She was lactating. The gas station attendant saw her jump out of a car with a woman and two young girls. They got out of the car and tried to get her to come back, but then drove away and never returned. MiMi moved to Arizona with Betsy and Jeff in August of 2006. She came on the plane with Jeff. She now lives with two rascaly black desert kitties.
