Arrival Story:
My boyfriend and I were walking down the street, right in front of my new apartment, when a teeny tiny cat came running up to us. There were lots of people on the street but she just sat right in front of us and stared, begging for help. She was absolutely tiny, barely 4 pounds, and very dirty and ragged. I went and got some food because she looked so skinny and I wanted to convince her to let us take her inside, but when I cam back she was purring and rubbing up against my boyfriend as he petted her. I convinced my anti-cat roommates to let me keep her until we found someone to take her. The first vet we took her to said she was at least 14 and probably had cancer. The second vet we took her too, was much more sympathetic and helped us treat her many illnesses until we had to put her down in late July 2006. We knew that nobody else would adopt such an elderly, ill cat and were able to convince the roommates to let her stay. October 2006 we would have had her for 2 years, a year and a half longer than any of the vets predicted she would live : )

Sophia had a hyper active thyroid, kidney disease, high blood pressure and a heart murmur. She was on a lot of medication and had to make frequent trips to the vet for blood tests, but she was an absolute angel. I have no idea who dumped her outside or why, but she was an incredible blessing to me. She loved to snuggle and adored her parents. She would sleep under the covers wedged in between us all night long and purr her tiny heart out. Every time I walked into the apartment she would let out a little chirp of happiness. I loved cats before we found her, but she made determined to help some of the many strays out there. I will always miss her and love her; deciding to put her down was the hardest decision I have ever made in my life. She was my first kitty baby and I am very grateful to her for showing me how unfulfilling a life without kitty cats can be!

pregnant cat?

One of the funniest things about her was that she was a pretty heavy could pick her up while she was a sleep and carry her around the house and she would stay asleep and limp. If she fells asleep sitting up she would slowly lean to the side until she fell over on the bed, then curl up, all while still sleeping.
