Arrival Story:
My family adopted Sylvia from friends about 10 years ago. These friends got her when their own black cat was missing. The father of the family came home one day and opened the door, and a black cat cat came in after him, so he called out to his daughter "Hey, the cat's back!" His daughter came running in and said, "Uh, that's not him..." For one thing is was a FEMALE cat! She just walked right in the house as if she owned the place, and she stayed. Their cat did turn up, and I'm sure he was surprised to see another black cat had taken over while he was gone!

Sylvia was a very sweet, loving cat but very shy with anyone outside her family. Most people who came to our house didn't even know we had a cat since she would hang out elsewhere whenever there were any people over. Sylvia was diagnosed with kidney disease (Chronic Renal Failure) in March 2002, which we managed well with a high-quality diet (not prescription junk food) and occassional sub-q fluids. She was doing very well and all her levels were normal for a long while. Sadly, in 2004 she developed a mammary tumor which was removed and was diagnosed with mammary adenocarinoma. Unfortunately she developed more tumors and metastasization. She passed away at the end of September, 2004.
