Daisy Mae had a interesting kittyhood with all her explorations and being rescued and such. One such exploration took Daisy Mae to the basement of our house and she found a hole to go in and explore. The only problem was that once Daisy Mae had gone so far in the tunnel, she found out she couldn’t turn a round and get back out. What did she do? The same thing that got her inside our house and that was meow as loud as she could until Dad rescued her. Why didn’t I rescue her? I couldn’t reach her and since Dad has longer arms than me and he just happened to be around so everything worked out for the good.
As Daisy Mae got further into her kittyhood and got older, she started itching and biting continuously. What did my family and I do? Well as pet parents there was only one choice and that was to take our Daisy Mae to the vet. Daisy Mae hates traveling in cars and hates the vet even more. Once at the vet the technician and vet checked her out and found a heart murmur.
What did we do? The vet gave us pills to give her by putting them in her mouth. The sad part was that didn’t work because she didn’t take them. She went back to the itching and biting continuously and this time when we went to the vet it was very traumatic for Daisy Mae. This was supposed to be a routine visit but it was anything but that. Why? Everything was going just fine except Daisy Mae meowing 25+ miles to the vet. Once inside, my father, Daisy Mae and I had just come around the corner of the reception desk and the pet carrier fell apart with Daisy Mae in it. The top of the pet carrier fell on top of Daisy Mae. The vet staff were really nice and took us right away and checked Daisy Mae out. The vet staff even attempted to put the pet carrier back together the best they could.
We were surprised when the vet and technician said everything was clear. Daisy Mae’s heart murmur had disappeared and that meant the vet and the technician could give Daisy Mae her medicine. They gave her a steroid shot and an antibiotic shot that lasted a month. It had been so long since I saw her act like a kitten. Sure she still runs up and jumps on things every-now-and-then but even more with medicine.
What made the heart murmur disappear? That is a very good question and personally I call it a kitty miracle. What’s a kitty miracle? That’s when something good happens to a cat or kitten without an explanation.
My family and I are very happy it happened and are very happy that Daisy Mae is feeling better.
