What a sweet and loving story. It would be so nice if every cat could have a loving home. I feel so badly for the homeless cats. Thanks, my friend, for the wonderful story.

When it has to do with love, money is always found, time is always made; and the best part is, you get that love back 10 fold.

What a beautiful cat. I bet this ordeal brought you all closer together. I was in a similar situation where you start spending and not sure where to stop. Will it take ony a couple of hundred to fix this condition? Will it be a couple more thousand? I don't know how much I spent on my cat, but it was thousands. The money, even though it was from my retirement fund, was worth every penny as it bought me another 6 years with my beloved cat. I had another cat that got sick and I spent a lot of money on her too, but she couldn't be saved. Her brother had the same condition, and when he got sick, I knew that he couldn't be saved, but I made his last days as good as possible and had him euthanized in a dignifyed matter. I've cremated all my cats so I still have them with me.
