Spotted Tabby

Being on a warm lap, "poofing" on people's heads, eating, sticking tongue out at people

Being taken off of a lap, being indoors all the time

Favorite Toy:

Favorite Food:
Nature's Variety Raw, boiled chicken breast (treat), raw beef liver and chicken hearts

She has an enept sense of where her litterbox and food are


Arrival Story:
She was hanging around a house that my fiance was visiting several weeks before we took her in, she visited there for a few days then took off. She came back two weeks later and kept staying there. When my fiance saw her again and showed her to me she was emaciated and dehydrated, but very friendly and even good with the dog. Nobody has any missing cat posters or ads in the paper from around the area, so we think she may have been abandoned or left behind in a move.

When I first got Velcro, for several months a wonderful woman named Lory helped us care for Velcro. She is doing better now, is at a healthy weight and size (she was severely underweight and very small when we adopted her, she is now 8 lbs and even larger structured) but still has flare-ups of her upper respiratory issues. She was spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped with Home Again. Since being spayed and being healthy enough to be spayed her personality took a complete and positive turn-around. She became pretty mellow most of the time but occasionally had a playful streak in her. She loved to sit on my lap when I was reading or on the computer (or working on a project, you know cats).

Lives Remaining:

Velcro's mews and purrs

Velcro's been tagged

**Original message: You've been tagged by me in a game where you list the 5 things that your human does that you hate the most. You can look at my Diary for details.

Hope you have fun, and I'm looking forward to finding out more about you!**

1. Water baths, Velcro's #1 enemy, but unfortunately a necessity.

2. When we don't let her outside unsupervised. Sorry Velcro, it's just too dangerous out there to be unsupervised and off lead.

3. When we add Berry Balance to the wet food for urinary tract health. For some reason she doesn't like this even though she has no problem eating lysine in her wet food.

4. Not letting her leap onto our shoulders, those claws hurt little missy!

5. Festive holiday safety collars, once we get them on she's fine but she doesn't like the initial putting them on.


Vet says Velcro can finally be spayed

Velcro went in for another vet visit yesterday, and she said that Velcro's herpes status and lungs looked great (we think it's a combination of the antibiotics, her diet, lysine, and the fact that we removed two large stressors for her out of the house); her nose is bright pink and clear with almost no discharge at all around it, and since the stress level has gone down, she rarely sneezes. Her vet finally said that she'd be comfortable spaying Velcro; the problem before is that every vet I talked to wouldn't do it because they were afraid of fluid filling her lungs and her dying on the operating table, OR in the case of the shelter, they wouldn't even give me a reason, they just said "we don't fix sick cats", end of conversation. I'm keeping her on the Clavamox as recommended by her VCA vet, and now I'm in the process on working on getting her spayed.
