Arrival Story:
Sam was adopted from the shelter where I used to work when he was a kitten, but his family returned him when he was five because they said he was urinating around the house. It turned out that he just had a UTI, which we treated at the shelter, but they decided they did not want him anyway. He became very ill from the stress of being at the shelter and stopped eating and drinking. I took him to the vet, where I learned that he had hemobartenella and the start of liver failure and would need a lot of care to pull through. I had to force feed him, medicate him, and give him fluids for a month before he ate or drank on his own again. He recovered, but has since acquired a number of other health problems: he is diabetic and has Cushing's disease and stomatitis. He is also going through a relapse with the hemobartenella right now, but he is getting better according to his latest bloodwork results. I adore this cat, including how clingy he is :)

UPDATE: Sam's poor little body finally gave out on August 30, 2006, and he was euthanized at home while in his favorite blanket. He will be greatly missed!
