Sammy with his dog brother Buddy.
On October 3rd, we adopted a beautiful 16 week, 3 day old Seal-Point Siamese/Ragdoll kitten who was called "Sharky" by his foster mom, later to be renamed "Sake" by us. We fell in love with him right away, after he curled up in my hair and fell asleep on my shoulder. It wasn't until after we got home, that we noticed that he hadn't been tested for FIV or FeLV.
From the moment we adopted this sweet, wonderful boy, we saw that he was never healthy. In fact, it seems like he never had a healthy day in his whole life. At his first vet appointment on October 7th, he was checked for worms, which came back positive. And his ears were covered with ear mites on the inside. We also tested him for FeLV/FIV, which came back negative (although that test would later prove to be a false negative, but I digress).
Sake was treated for worms but still had diarrhea, so the next fecal test on October 21st showed that he had coccidia. Back on medications for that. He was also at that point, found to have ringworm. Yet more medications. Another fecal test on October 27th showed that both the worms and coccidia were finally gone.
November 9th, we brought him to the vet with swollen lymph nodes. His bloodwork and lymph node biopsy showed that he did not have lymphoma, much to our relief. On Wednesday, November 25th, Sake had a fever and was given fluids subcutaneously. He was also given a blood test to check for a "fever of unknown origin". On Saturday, November 28th, I brought him to The Hope Center in Vienna because he had a very high fever. The vet there noted that his breath sounds were raspy and she said that she was guessing that he had FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis). She treated him, and I took him home, hoping the medication would help him feel better. I ended up bringing him back to The Hope Center at 3:30 am on Sunday, November 29th because he was having trouble breathing. He was getting more and more sick, and the vet said that the FIP wasn't going to get better. At 11am that morning, my family and I make the heartbreaking decision to put our beloved baby boy to sleep. When the nurse brought him in and we finally saw him, he started purring the most wonderful purr I'd ever heard. I will forever treasure how happy he sounded to see us. My kids, husband and I took turns holding him and loving him before he took his last breath. It wasn't until a few days later that we found out that he did, in fact, have Feline Leukemia.
This has devastated my family, especially my 11-year old daughter and me. My daughter became depressed, not concentrating on schoolwork (and is still treating the ringworm she caught from him), and I've been struggling with crippling anxiety, especially regarding the health of my other cat, Sushi, who played very closely with Sake. He at one point bit her tail, and she needed to be treated with pain medications and antibiotics, and while she initially tested negative for leukemia, we still won't have a better diagnosis until later on this month. For now, it's just a waiting game.
We miss Sake every day. He was a beautiful, sweet, cuddly baby, and even in the 57 days he was in our lives, he left such an impact.
The agency dropped the ball on this. They are liable. We wanted more than anything to save this sweet little baby and have him in our family forever. He didn't deserve this. We didn't deserve this. My KIDS did not deserve this.
Protocols need to be followed...please make sure the adoption agencies test for FIV and FeLV. All this heartbreak could have been prevented with just one test. It's the agency's responsibility to test.
Cute tiny little guy.
This is Dyna. She is a kind of old cat. We got her when we moved to Indiana from Illinois, and she used to have a roomie named Harley. Sadly, Harley passed last August, and she has been looking for him ever since. It's sad, but she is a health cat who LOVES to play.
I was found in an abandoned office building without a mother when I was only a couple of weeks old, by some nice people who put my picture online to find me a forever home. Two weeks ago, I got one, along with two big sisters who are teaching me cat stuff!
He is new to us and we are still getting to know him he has the most striking blue eyes and pointy ears.
She's a blue-eyed Red Point Siamese cat who loves a challenge. That's where the name came from. At the salon I worked in there was a house next for that had a cat and kittens. Well they invited more cats and kittens to house. And this one particular summer day, a small white kitten comes strolling into the salon's cracked door and meowing like she owned the place. As she came in further I could see that she was approaching me like she chose me. She did.....lol! Hence the name Bossie because of her assertiveness and Bella because she is soooo beautiful. Full of energy and prissiness, she is a ton of fun, laughs, and love.
I found Snips at work in the midst of rubble. His mother either died or abandoned him. He was about 4-5 weeks old and had every disease a cat could have. He is mommies boy, he literally thinks of me as his mother. He is very possessive of me and shows me love in that I have never experience from a cat.
Roxy is a 7-month old medium-fur snowshoe Siamese mix with a splotch on her nose. She loves to sneak up on and ambush her human guardians (aka her roommates). She plays with just about anything but her favorite toys include feathers, paper, boxes, and rabbit feet. She accessorizes with holiday-themed collars and is a total diva.
Nala was also a recue from a cattery the same one as sookie she is a little timid but gives attention when you are sitting on the toilet or laying in bed
This is Sookie, she was a rescue from a cattery that was being shut down due to illness from the breeder she was about 4 mths old when I got her and she follow's everything that her brother Simba does. and she likes to play with her dinner lol
Simba is a white Lynx Siamese they are kinda rare I have had him for 7 and 1/2 yrs and is the most loveable cat he has to sleep with me every night right on my neck, or chest he plays fetch and loves catnip
My cat Teemu is one of the cutest cats in the world history <3
Not so good picture ...
female cat,cute and mexican,loves to play with balls and bugs,nice kitty
Hello ladies and gentlemen, my name is Coco. Everybody in my family loves me to death! Its obvious why, I'm flat out adorable! I like to say I'm curvy but it sounds like other people say it differently.
I have a cat brother and a dog brother, the cat one is just a monster. He likes to scare me from under the chair! Its name is...BatMan. A.K.A. Mr. Batman Baby Bunny Boo Boo. Now on the other hand, Teddy is the dog brother, he is not so bad. (Teddy also has his own page here on this site too.) I love my pompoms that I play with, the corner on the couch and my food. I also love my Mom too! Well that's my life, eat, sleep and eat more again!
Riley is the sweetest, gentlest soul there ever was. He's extremely timid, unless of course there are treats to be had--in which case he'll shamelessly cut to the front of the line. He's very vocal and never fails to let me know whenever he's in need of some TLC.
My mom's brother found me in the street and fed me up for a few days then asked my mom if she would take me. She did, knowing how hard it is for black cats to find forever homes. She isn't sure exactly how old I am, because I have not grown any since she got me in November, and I have already had um certain things done to me... But she guesses that that I am over a year now. I am still as playful as a kitten. It took me about 5 months to realize the dogs were not going to eat me! But now I'm over it... I even sleep on the bed when the dogs are there too. and yes... I live up to my name!
Beavis is Jacks brother. He is my cuddle cat. He has to be right up into whatever you are trying to do!
