Lucy, although she's an indoor cat only (she was a victim of abject cruelty when she was younger by her previous owners and her front leg folds back under her, severed tendon) caught some kind of virus. In human terms we'd call it "a right, stinking cold" but whatever it was nearly killed her. It was thanks to us having a really good vet - she was hospitalised for nearly a week, that she is now 98% recovered and all the healing vibes everyone put out that she is still with us.
She's a lovely old cat, approximate age 16 who we totally adore
I know she adores us too - you see it in her eyes. Total love and trust.
