Stories - What We Do Every Day
Miracle Lucky!

Lucky was found at the side of the road in Catskill (Mainstreet), dehydrated and non responsive. At her first vet visit she was attended through fluid therapy and teats. She recovered for a day and we all were really happy for her.

Than, the next day, she vomited and became lethargic again-another vet visit. This time she was given meds to stimulate her appetite and more fluids. One better day for Lucky, than again she became more lethargic again. Saturday we found her in worse shape than ever and rushed her to the Kingston Emergency Clinic..

She was X-rayed and diagnosed with an obstruction and needed emergency surgery right away. The X-ray also showed gunshots embedded in her bones. We all prayed for this sweet soul to make it through the surgery, she was soo weak, she couldn't even stand up.

In spite all her endurances, Lucky tried to purr through the entire examination - she knew we were there to help her. I left her with her guardian angel ( her little toy protector) in the hands of those wonderful staff at the Kingston Animal Clinic, praying for her all the way home.

At 10 PM finally the so much awaited call, she made it through surgery and she was stable. They found a 2 inch rubber piece in her intestines, for sure she would have died within a day, if not attended to. 24 hrs. later, we finally could take her back. Here you see her resting after her ordeal, happy, purring and eating, eating, eating......

Hi Katrin,

We thought you'd enjoy this photo of Pillow. She is taking over - including many of Pascha's preferred spots. (I'm afraid Pillow is going to be her "real" name - our vet said Lucky is an unlucky name for a cat and Pillow really seems to fit her!) We're engaged in negotiating detente here ....

Warm regards,
Victoria & Paul
