I just wanted to update anyone who is tracking this thread that when I took Sammy to the vet the week she was given a clean bill of health. Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.........
He was very impressed with how healthy she was for a 12 tear old cat and especially one who had been in a shelter for as long as she was. Good heart, healthy lungs, good teeth and nice coat. Of course I did the happy dance.
She is really settling in very nicely and is becoming more and more loving towards me. When I came home from work today I flopped on the bed to chat with Kim on the phone she came up and curled up in the crook of my arm and fell asleep. Awwwwww, it was really just too sweet.
But the best news of all is that my resident cat, Ethel, is really doing very well with her. There has been more nose touching and sniffing than hissing which makes me extremely happy. That was the whole reason for getting Sammy... to keep Ethel company and keep her out of trouble!!!
Anyway... that's the update
