Arrival Story:
The beginning of December I was at Petsmart making one of my weekly litter runs. As always I look at the kitties up for adoption, always paying special attention to the black kitties who many times are there longer than the others. Tinkerbell was there, her original owner who named her had turned her into Animal Control, she was sweet and lovable, I was sure she would find a good home. A few days later she was gone, she was adopted, great! Just before Christmas I saw a black kitten there again, went in too look at her and believe it or not it was Tinkerbell she had been returned, the girl said she had scratched a child at the new home ( I am sure it had NOTHING to do with the kid!)...I left hoping she would find another home and about a week later she was gone, I had my fingers crossed for her.. ..the day after Whitey crossed the bridge I had to go get litter again, I glanced at the cats and did a double-take, I asked the girl there is that Tinkerbell, she said yes she was returned again for being too active or some stupid reason and now they were probably going to send her back to the shelter because she was sneezing.... Unfortunately Animal Services is a kill shelter and who knew if she would survive another trip out there, so a friend and I decided to spring her from the joint. Then we had to sneak her in the house so my husband wouldn't know. After 2 days he asked who the black cat was, I said who Sevie? Narcissa? Bellatrix? Then I laughed and said it was Tinkerbell....she is now known as daddy's girl and Princess by him! Here she will never be TOO active and she won't be given up because she is sick or scratches someone for scaring her

Sadly Tink crossed the bridge on 2-18-08 , she was developing fluid on her abdomen we believe was a result of FIP...we are still waiting on labwork to tell us for sure.....This little girl fought with all she had to stay with us, she was a soul kitty to me, I fell in love the first time I saw her sweet face...She will be missed for all time..... you can read more about her battle in her diary...

My Sweet friend BBQ

I am so very sad today....last night we found out that BBQ had the same disease we believe I had and he had to cross the bridge yesterday...He is here with me , safe and happy with his coat gleaming and his eyes shining but we look down on our families and thay are having such a hard time accepting that we are meowmy has been meaning to write in my diary for me but has just been too upset to come to my page much but because of BBQ she is here today...we want to let everypurr know that we are happy here and we are no longer in pain and we will always be with you meowmy hasn't gotten over loosing me and now BBQ's crossing only 5 days later is almost too much to bear....we urge everypurr to educate themselves about this terrible disease can strike any kitty anywhere, there is no vaccine, no accurate test for it until the symptoms are advanced and no treatment that will save a kitties life once they have it ..... please support research for this disease so that someday kitties will be safe from it and not have to cross the bridge like BBQ and I did...
I want to thank every kitty that purred for me while I was sick, who gave me presents, said kind words that comforted my meowmy, and who have invited me to be friends and helped me get settled in here at the has meant so much to us to know that there are so many people out there who understand what we went has meant so much to her...


Valentines Day!!!

Guess what! This morning I heard a knock at our front door and then meowmy brought in a big envelope addressed to me! I smelled it and she opened it, it was a beautiful Valentine with Tinkerbell on it from my wonderpurr boyfriend Caviar!! I am such a lucky girl, getting the Valentine made meowmy cry, she cry's a lot right now because she is so worried about me being sick and our friend Madi too and now this morning we found out that Isaac from the BCCP group is very sick as well....I wish I could get better and eat and make her happy again, I am purring for Madi and Isaac too....
This evening the vet called meowmy about my bloodwork, it seems all the things she was looking for to tell her I had FIP were not in my blood, my blood sugar was a little high and my white cells were up a bit but so far the indicators for FIP were not there, not to say I do not have it but it is not showing up like it would if I did, confused yet , I sure am , oh and my stool sample that was sent out to a lab...negative for everything is more confused and worried than ever....I still have a fever but no more loose poops, they were almost normal today...In the morning the vet is going to talk to another vet who works at her clinic on Thursdays, she is into herbal treatments and does accupuncture and she is going to see what she thinks. They talked earlier today and she said mom was on the right track with the slippery elm and probiotics but also expressed concern it could be FIP but they didn't have the bloodwork results at tha time. I have an appointment to see a homeopathic veternarian in the morning, mom is willing to do anything at this point! I am so tired of doctors...I am just tired all together right now.....meowmy seems to be upset all the time now and I feel so bad, I just want to get on with my life, I really hope the doctor tomorrow can help.....

Caviar I love you so very much, I loved you the minute I met you!!! I want to stay and be your girlfriend forever and I am trying so hard to get better for you and everypurr else......please know that whatever happens you are my one true love and I will be with you always.......Tink


Thank you all!

First and foremost I want to thank everykitty who purred for me , sent me gifts and words of encouragement on my purrday. Meowmy spends so much time taking care of me and doing research to try to make me better that she can't thank everyone individually but you all know who you are and I am deeply grateful that you care and are purring for me. A special thanks to The Bunny, Angel, Merlin, Ashley Jay and their meowmies and everyone else who helped to E mail kitties and post in the groups about my purr day...oh and Kittanna too who posted in the Cardmaker group....and Simon and his friends!
I don't know how many of you know about my entire situation so I will start from the beginning...
I have been at my new home for about a month and a half now. After being returned to the shelter 3 times meowmy adopted me before I could be sent back to the main shelter where who knows what would have happened to me. I got better and then got to meet Sevie ( who I loved at first sight) and all the other kitties. I played, ran all over the house, typed on the puter with meowmy and Sevie at night, slept on the warm soft blankets on the bed and met my wonderpurr and very handsome boyfriend Caviar right here on Catster. I was so happy and felt like the luckiest kitty in the world!
The weekend of the 2nd. I didn't feel so good, meowmy noticed Sunday that I was not playing with Sevie and she fixed me up a room of my own so she could watch me, I had loose poopies and not much of an appetite.She thought maybe I had a bug and took me to the vets first thing Monday morning. They took a stool sample, it was negative but meowmy just had a feeling something was wrong so they took blood to send out (I was very bad, I hate being poked in the leg with a needle!!!) and I was sent home with some medicine for my loose poops.....I still doidn't want to eat so meowmy started trying everything from baby food to steak, some I would lick a little but not enough so she got stuff she could feed me in a syringe. Wed the test results were back, they didn't show much at all but meowmy was even more worried now, why was I not eating??? Friday the 8th. she took me to another vet, Dr. Antz, she is a very nice vet who treats any kitty here with a weird problem or when meowmy is just freaked out and needs another opinion......she was sort of stumped but not too concerned , I had a fever of 103.6 so they gave me antibiotics and some stuff to help in case I had some sort of parasite they could not see from my stool sample (yes they took another one)and another drug to give me to bring my fever down...Meowmy was told to keep me eating and warm and also to add daily sub-Q fluids to the list of things to give me.....meowmy told Dr. Antz of her concerns that I may have FIP, and the Dr. said what meowmy already knew..there is no test that will tell us for sure if I have FIP, if I have had vaccines I will test positive for corona virus which causes the disease so they will treat the symptoms and wait...nothing really helped over the weekend , I was, I am embarrassed to say hardly able to hold my poopies and sometimes it would get on meowmy kept me cleaned up and kept food in me everyday , sometimes I don't like it but I know she is trying to help me...
Since none of the medicine the vet gave her helped me at all she started doing some research into something herbal or homeopathic that might help my loose poops. She went to the health food store and got some slippery elm powder and probiotics to add to my food as well as organic chicken breast, oatmeal baby cereal and some supplements to make me up some new food which she blends up so she can put in a syringe and force feed it to me....and guess what ! I was able to hold my poops all day Wednesday! I do still have a fever but not having to use the litterbox every hour is a huge improvement.
Wednesday the 13th. Meowmy took me in to have more blood pulled and another stool sample checked, my stool sample showed some good bacteria where there was none before ( probably because of the probiotics she is giving me) but it was sent out to another lab to check for anything that might be making me sick. They took more blood as well to see if anything had changed since last time and took me off the antibiotic which was not helping anyway as well as the fever reducer ( I can only be on it a few days ) and said to just give me the flagyl which is for the intestinal stuff. I am still having a fever and not eating on my own but I have not lost any weight at all which is good....meowmy is still so worried that I may have FIP.....she is very upset and sad and is so afraid I will have to leave her, I am really trying to get better so I can stay with her, my family, my handsome boyfriend Caviar.....I love them all so much , I really don't want to leave them....!
