Arrival Story:
I had a heart attack when I was 42 years old and when I got discharged, my children brought me this little 5 week old fluffball that looked like a chewed up Snickers candy bar so that I had "something to live for."She was a very lovable kitten but as she got older she became the most uncatlike cat I have ever seen. She doesn't like to be petted or held except on her terms which amount to around a minute a day (if that long) She will rub up against you and the next thing you know she has taken a big bite out of you, sunk her teeth into you or is chasing you around the room. Believe me, you do NOT want her to catch you! Over the past 4 or 5 months she has mellowed somewhat and there have been a few times where she has lain within petting distance and I've actually heard her purr a few times. I hope she gets even more mellow as she ages. She let me brush her on Christmas for the first time with this incredible brush. Her fur is breathtaking now, sleek and shiny like satin. I can't stop reaching to pet her and my arm is certainly showing the effects of that!

Bio:
Izzy has the oddest habit of surrounding herself with small beanielike babies. She has done this for years and nudges them up to her like she is trying to nurse them. She will carry them in her mouth just like they are kittens and bring them to me. Izzy was diagnosed with a rare cancer in her front Rt. paw in Nov 2012. We tried everything to save her but the cancer was just too aggressive. We found a wonderful vet, Dr. Cathy Williams who helped provide kitty hospice for Izzy. We were able to keep her pain free and happy until Jan. 24 when the tumor on her leg started hemorrhaging. Izzy knew we were trying to do everything we could and her personality underwent a drastic change. She became loving and let me pet her and rub her face for long periods which I loved. She was so soft! We took her to the U of IL vet hospital where she passed over to The Rainbow Bridge. WE miss her so much.

Forums Motto:
Go ahead, make MY day.
