Date of Birth: September, 2006
Witty Kitties: March, 2009
Biography: When a stray cat appeared in the neighborhood, Judy Akers, aka
the "Marion cat lady," knew she had to rescue him. After trapping him and then gaining his trust, she was
finally able to take him to the vet and found out he tested positive for feline leukemia. Judy fostered him (in her
laundry room!) for another month, waiting to re-test him. The second test was positive also, so he came to Witty Kitties.
Shortly after he arrived, we noticed he was having trouble peeing. When Dr. Jenni palpated a mass and then performed
surgery, she discovered "a large necrotic area of fat and omentum adhered to an abscess attached to his bladder."
Wow! Although he has lost a little weight, he appears completely recovered less than a month later. He may not
exactly fit his name right now, but he's eating well and we expect he'll be a "big guy" again soon enough.
