Tuxie Tuesday - Special Edition

The Story of Mrs. B - Part One
The Lady that saved Mrs. B (we will just call her the Nice Lady) was kind enough to write me a long e-mail telling me the story of how Mrs. B came to her and everything she went though before she came to live with me. So without further ado, here is the story of Mrs. B.

Some neighbors of the Nice Lady saw Mrs. B in their yard. She was disoriented and weak so they took her to the Nice Lady since they knew she helped kitties in need.

We don’t know anything about Mrs. B before this. The vet estimated that she was about 2 years old when she was found. From my time with her I’m sure she was somebody’s pet. She does like to go outside to eat grass, but she is not very outdoor savvy. She gets spooked easily outside, so I think she must have been a predominantly indoor cat.

In any case, when they found her, she had extremely bad diarrhea and was very dehydrated. Since it was a weekend the Nice Lady’s normal vet was closed, so she took her to another vet. They ran some tests and said she was FIV positive and should be put to sleep. The Nice Lady did not agree, but they were adamant that she needed to be euthanized.

(to be continued ...)

It's horrible that someone would just leave you out there to be ill and potentially die, not to mention potentially affect other cats! Whatever happened before Mrs. B?

Good fortune was smiling on Mrs. B. Most abandoned kitties aren't so lucky.

Owr frend Babe, hoo is gramma's kitty, is FIV pozitiv, and it's likely that sumwun dumped/abandund him win they fownd that owt, wich is how he ended up livving with gramma. But Babe was not yoothinized and he's the sweetest cat, ever. It's nice to heer storeys that let peeple know that FIV is not an immediyut deth sentinse.
