Here are 3 of our 4 cats.
The background are Maisie and Benny (ginger), both what I would consider 'normal' sized cats.
However, the one in the foreground is the remarkable Holly, all the 4 cats we have (Cassie not in picture) obtained from animal welfare or abondoned animal shelters. Holly is special because she was close to death when they found her in hedgerows of the back garden of her former owner who was an elderly lady who died and no one knew of her cat. She fended for herself for several weeks before soemone found her.
She was very weak and had to be almost completely shaved because of lice and matted hair, she then almost lost her sight due to ulcers that were successfully treated by our vet, next on a routine check the vet found a lump under her tongue that was initially diagnosed as cancerous, 2 weeks later the biopsy showed it was non cancerous and when we took her to have it removed it had miraculously disappeared. We then found out that she had diabetes and we have to inject her twice a day but it does not seem to bother her at all.
It's been an uneventful 18 months now and she is growing from strength to strength with a clean bill of health
The trouble is we just cannot say no when she begs for tit-bits, I know we shouldn't but she's been through so much and well why not, only trouble is that she now weighs in at a staggering 23 pounds - almost 2 stones
The pic has not been photo shopped, that really is her size
