Fat Kitty City got a call a number of months ago from a truck-repair business in Roseville, CA. Someone had dumped/abandoned this cat on their property, and they fed her for a couple of months, but couldn’t keep her because of the danger of all of the large vehicles coming and going on the property. She was skin and bones, de-clawed, and estimated to be 3-4 years old.
Cindy, the owner of Fat Kitty City, asked me to take “Vanny” to the vet for an exam and blood work, and it turned out that she was 10-11 years old, and was in need of thyroid medication. Since I already had Willy, a 16-year-old hyper-thyroid sanctuary cat on thyroid medication, I half-kiddingly said I should probably take her, so she could be medicated every day, along with Willy. Dr. Smith, our vet, looked at her and said that, in all honesty, being in a home would be much better for Vanny than trying to medicate her every day at the sanctuary.
Well, the rest is history. Vanny is now a healthy, thriving senior citizen, who seems to love her new home and enjoys being pampered and petted as much as she can get (which is a lot!)
