Arrival Story:
I have a friend in Texas that lives near a college campus. At the end of every school year, many cats get dumped near her home. Bless her, she always manages to find homes for them. In 1997, a pregnant mother cat gave birth to three kittens, and my friend was watching them closely. One day, one of the neighbors dogs got into her back yard and killed the mother cat and the male kitten. Tessa's sister was badly injured - but Tessa was unharmed. The sister was making a recovery and my friend managed to find her a home. But no one wanted Tessa! She told me her husband didn't care for Tessa - at the time, she was wild and very fearful. So I said - "OK, stick her on a plane and I'll take her." 3 days later thanks to the kind folks at Delta Dash, Tessa came to live with us. It took about a year before she would trust us - now she can't get enough attention! She is a very wise soul, and tries desperately to "talk" to us. Our lives are blessed by having Tessa in our home.

My heart is heavy and in pain. I miss you already. Kidney failure might have taken you from us physically, but you will always be with us in spirit. Fly high, baby girl! Suffer no more.

Forums Motto:
Pet me, pet me!
