Arrival Story: Fruit was a rescue; she had severe IBS along with food allergies and chronic herpes virus. She was only with us a short time, but was such a happy kitty despite her health problems. Her IBS became so bad that she had several stays at the pet hospital for fluid therapy to treat the dehydration she suffered from her severe diarrhea. She died unexpectedly at home a few hours after one of her stays at the emergency center, crossing rainbow bridge December 2007. Fruit was such a loving kitty and was always cuddling with anyone in sight. She was known to constantly purr and would even suck her tail while "making biscuits" on you. She is greatly missed, but we know she is in a better place where she is no longer suffering from her poor health.
