Welcome to Alphabe-Thursday. It's hard to believe we're up to the last letter already. How time flies!
ZOOM is a killer. Thank goodness!
She came into our lives shortly after Hurricane Ike in 2008. I was shopping at my favorite resale shop when I was approached by a man in the parking lot. He was holding a tiny bundle of gray fur and told me he had found her behind the shopping center. He asked if I would drop her off someplace for him. I started to walk away and then I looked back and saw how sick she appeared. I just couldn't walk away, so I took her from him and drove straight to my Veterinarian's office.
She sat on my lap and attempted to play with the seat belt. Both of her eyes were runny and the one was covered with a white film. She had a respiratory infection and an infection in both eyes. She weighed less than a pound.
They thought she might lose the one eye, but slowly both eyes improved. She ate like she was starving (and she was), and she quickly put on weight. Her respiratory infection improved, but then she relapsed and had to go back on the antibiotic for a second round.
She still has runny eyes, but they say she must have picked up a cat herpes infection too. She'll always have the runny eyes, but they're not too bad.
She's become a holy terror. We joke that normal people never would have kept her. I have to warn people when they come in the house not to touch her. She'll come over and roll around on the floor by their feet. She looks adorable, but watch out! If anyone tries to pet her she'll attack. She's a terror.
Fortunately, we're not normal people. We love ZOOM and she's here to stay.
Now please head over to Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent" for a list of this week's participants.
Hurry back Ms. Jenny!
Thank you for visiting.
