Tee Tee the Underdog
We have always gotten our cats from the Animal Shelter except 2 one found at a friends house and one at work.
We recently lost our mother to Dementia in March. I was helping at the animal shelter for about a month on the weekends and fell in love with the cats. I would come home telling my dad stories on what they did that day. He went and brought home the one that would not stop putting her paws out at him.
She fell really sick with the UPI She weighed 2.3 when we got her and fell to 1.5. Gave her the medicine cleaned out nose fed with a food dropper and she slept under his neck every night. My male cat Rocco weighing in at 18 lbs started to lay with her clean her and would not leave her side even when she was with dad.
We had the Vets hydrate her until finally after almost 3 weeks she got up and started eating and drinking on her own. She weighs 7 lbs and is 4 months older. She bugs Rocco all day even when he makes the get lost noise. She licks his paws and then he lays down in defeat and sleeps with her.
Just going through this and watching the love really touched my family and has brought my dad out of his depression caring for her. She wakes him up at the door sits on his lap and puts his socks in her water dish and brings them back to him like she washed them or something, still haven't figured that one out yet. She is just now meowing out loud and Rocco is happier and getting more exercise running and chasing her.
