On Halloween 2006 a little fuzzy ball of fur came home with me from the local shelter. . .
He instantly won my heart--and John's--and became a significant part of our family.
He took over our hearts, as well as our HOME. . .Anyone with a cat understands this statement.
September 25th was his actual birthday. . .He was ten years old this year. . .
and nine of them he has lived with Addison's Disease. . .
A MIRACLE in itself.
Many of you who have followed my blog know BOO. . .and his illness. . .
Recently, I've had several inquiries, so I thought today would be a good time to let you know. . .
BOO IS STILL ALIVE AND STILL A WALKING MIRACLE
He continues to "work" with the PFIZER RESEARCH PROGRAM. . .
a project to find the cure for ADDISON'S DISEASE
in Animals and Humans.
They have made some startling discoveries
and it appears they may have a better medicine for the disease soon.
BOO has outlived 4000+ Cats in the program. . .
The Halloween Card above was made from a photo five years ago.
He actually has a short coat of fur these days, due to his illness
and he lives at the Vet's Office most of the time now
because the Addison's flares up quickly and often.
He has someone with him 24/7.
But. . .every now and then. . .our little Cutie will get a Pass to come home
for a day or two. . .If we're lucky, we'll get a week. . .
It's so SPECIAL when that happens because BOO and I have a very close bond. . .
John says we are velcro-ed together.
It doesn't seem to matter if it's been one month or two since BOO was home,
he comes in and picks up with our LIFE where he left it.
We are so PROUD of him. . .
HE'S MY. . .
