Cat Welfare Association
Abby came to Cat Welfare in February 1997. Abby has a medical condition that requires her to get medicine on a regular basis. Being a senior lady, she quietly rules the roost. She's quite a lady even though she'll put you and any of her feline friends in their places before you know it! She's very quiet until she gets her special treats and then she really comes alive. She really enjoys sitting in one of the beds in the front window or on the screened in porch watching the birds and wildlife outside. Often, she'll get in one of her loving moods and will follow you around the room hoping you'll sit down so she can plop on your lap. But keep in mind that she'll only stay there for so long and she'll be the one to decide when cuddle time is over. In 2005, Abby seemed to be under the weather a lot so she went to the vet for several appointments and tests. It was discovered that she has a mild heart murmur on the right side of her heart and a slight valve leak. The good news is the doctor said it is not a problem in and of itself and does not require additional treatment. Her kidneys have decreased in size, but for a cat her age that can be normal. Abby has been living in a special foster home since Christmas 2006 so her heart and blood sugar levels can be closely monitored. All the things she loved to do at the shelter she continues to do in her foster home. She especially loves that it is easier to get some "lap time" in her foster home.
UPDATE: July 2007 - Abby has been officially adopted by her foster family! Thanks to everyone that has been Abby's sponsor and cared about her. If you would like to hear how she is doing in her forever home, then feel free to send an e-mail to email@example.com.
