On September 17th, Suzie had passed. The fluid in her lungs was severe and would of needed aggressive treatment to be taken care of properly. The treatment would of been the kind where she'd need 24/7 care with chest tubes and constant medication with a minimum of $6000 to treat. It would have never gone away on its own with only medication. Brennan and I had to make the hardest decision ever. All the vet could say was it was a fluke illness, not sure of what the cause was since nothing at home changed and she's an indoor kitty only.
She was literally the best cat ever. She was shy but loved everyone. She had the patience of a saint and was loved by so many people. She loved her cuddles with anyone who needed it and was a fantastic therapy cat.
But then a miracle happened, or Suzie knew what we needed.
A week after we had to put Suzie down, I had a friend call me and tell me his friends need help. They have a cat who has been home to home and they got caught with him. They had to pay a $100 lease violation fee and $50 a day for each day they kept the cat. It felt way too soon, we weren't ready for another cat, but I also know as a human, change is hard and home hopping is stressful.
We started with a 2 week trial with him and we didn't expect to fall in love to fast. He's definitely my cat, he follows me everywhere, even in the shower. The first 5 days was tough. He's a vocal cat already and stress made him basically yowl when he wasn't getting attention, which was basically when I was asleep. Then we learned he's curious, but clumsy. He'll jump onto things but completely misses, knocking everything down (including my computer but it's working!). He kinda hops instead of runs, and he walks crooked. He's also an ugly sleeper. He's a spaz but he's definitely my cat.
Meet Snoopy everyone.

In order to pay for her vet bill I am offering $100 sessions for a while to make up the rent money I had to spend and try and build up my savings again.
