Arrival Story:
I had the name "Hannah" chosen and visited the Pinole animal shelter with my friend (The same friend that I got Shea from), when this VERY dignified dilute calico girl was calmly sitting in the cage, basically saying to me "I know you are going to pick ME", so I did. Sixty bucks later I was on my way back to my friends house to give her a bath before taking her home to my parent's house. Hannah was "christened" by my friend's dog, who proceeded to take her entire tiny body into her mouth when she was introduced to her. I took Hannah home, and kept her a secret from my Dad, because he had made it plain that we were to not get any more cats. Eventually Hannah won his affection, just as easily as she had won my heart. This cat was THE ONE to me. She never grew larger than 6 pounds, was diagnosed with Lymphoma at the tender age of 12 months, and I lost her at the young age of 6 years. There will never be another Hannah. I loved this cat more than I love life. Losing her was the hardest thing for me to endure, to this day I have not gotten over her loss.

Hannah would purr me to sleep everynight. She was a trooper through her illness, the two bone marrow surgeries, the weekly blood draw to check her anemia, all the horrible anticancer medications, the antinausea meds, the oral iron supplements, and ultimately the daily subcutaneous fluids and kidney failure. I had to put her to sleep when she finally was too weak to keep going. My only secure feeling is that she has crossed Rainbow Bridge and is out of discomfort and fully healthy again, waiting patiently there with "Cubby" my very first stray cat I rescued as a young girl, "Peek-A-Boo", my second kitty that raised Hannah, "Scout", the trashcan diving kitty that died of cardio myopathy at age 2 years, I had only rescued Scout for 6 months prior to her death, my numerous parakeets, finches, canaries and bunnies for me to cross and reunite with them.
