Above is a photo of marigold, on the left, and Flora, one of her two sisters. Marigold died much as Fritz did, starting with lassitude, and then not eating, then after a few (just a few) days, becoming jaundiced, and dying shortly after that. I wanted to have an autopsy done on Marigold, but couldn't bring self to subject her body to that.....I asked neighbor, when Fritz died i,f he had any toxins around, he said no...but young cats just don't up and die from liver failure. More homework to do. So much for writing just the happy stuff. Best Friends sanctuary is great about doing that; it's effective marketing, and all-around good practice. But these little ones need mention, I feel. Marigold was a quiet, gentle, very beautiful cat, and she is missed!
Good News!! Great News!! Today is the Grand Opening (in just an hour!) of the Fix Our Ferals new clinic! 3000 sq. feet, parking (!) and it's walking distance from my house! Not that I would, but I could! this is huge!!! The clinic will have free spay/neuter days, low-cost services (really low-cost) a food bank, classes, and more! I fervently pray that having this clinic available, right on bus lines and easy to find, will make a dent in the homeless cats in our area!
