Still keeping our paws crossed but after two treatments with the new chemo the tumor is shrinking and Mimi's putting on weight and playing more. She leaps around, purrs like crazy and swats me at the food bowl, displaying dominance in a way she didn't do when she felt bad. She's even been grabbing food out of my Mommy's hands - loves an occasional bit of cheese or crushed potato chip!
Molly-Cool is a calico babe who was abandoned on a road in the middle of nowhere in August 2012. Mewing piteously in 100+ degree heat, she was picked up by a kind man whose wife knew her Mommy. She was only 3 weeks old and the vet didn't think she'd make it because she wouldn't drink kitten milk supplements. She napped on a laptop to keep warm, licked a little Greek lemon yogurt from her Mommy's finger and guzzled a special nutrition paste from a tube like there was no tomorrow. After a few tense days in a house full of big cats, Mimi, a tiny Himalyan beauty, became her protector, teacher and constant companion. Named Molly because she was "unsinkable," she remade herself into Molly-Cool through her antics and spunky personality quirks. She's now top diva in a house with 3 other lady cats. We will celebrate her first birthday on July 15th.
