Angelina was slowly losing weight during 2014; bloodwork in October showed dramatically low white cells and platelets.  She managed to stay with us another three months, until on Christmas Eve day we found her dehydrated, dull and pale, and refusing food.  No way were we going to let this sweetheart suffer a minute longer than necessary, so we said goodbye and she peacefully went over the bridge amid many tears and hugs.

Biography:         Angela is a sweet, little cerebellar hypoplasia kitty, and she started out in Room 3, our non-retroviral room.   We were concerned about her big, round belly, however.  Jenni opened her up through an old spay site, and found a belly full of puss due to pyometra.  After surgery and antibiotics, she has fully recovered.  Almost as an afterthought, Jenni re-tested her for FeLV (she had tested negative a month before coming to Witty Kitties.)  And sadly she tested a very strong positive.  We're guessing she must have had some fun with an infected male shortly before she was tested, and it was just too soon for the virus to show up in her blood.  In any event, she's now one of our "double whammy" kitties, but is doing great.  She's not very wobbly on her feet, but she does have a pronounced head bobble when she tries to eat.  She can jump on and off a regular height chair with no problems.  And her wobbly trotting across the room is just so cute.

Special Needs: 
FeLV, Cerebellar Hypoplasia
