Don't Underestimate The Power of Fancy Feast

It's the 8th inning for Miss RowdyAnne, diabetic, age 12, my tri-color paint cat. I'm saddened that she won't see her 13th birthday. As a kitten, the stereotypical scaredy-cat, afraid of her own shadow was also the noisiest kitten I've ever had, a rowdy kitten indeed.


I found Rowdy in the woods after a storm/minor flood. It took 3 days to catch her. The first 2 nights, she slept in a tiny kitten sized cave, with predators everywhere. Try as I might, I just couldn't reach her, so I put food/water in the cave at dusk and piled rocks at the entrance, at dawn I moved the rocks.

On the third morning, RowdyAnne followed me back to the house and took up residence in a storage shed, at which point, we were a can of Fancy Feast away from our first hug.

That afternoon, after her first doctor visit, Rowdy became a house cat and took up residence against my left hip, where she's been purring and makin' dough for 12 years now. She's never asked to go out again.

Beautiful Kitty
by: Rayna

She is beautiful! Sounds like she is very lucky to have you! I also have a diabetic cat who I was gifted due to a series of seemingly random events. Obviously it was meant to be in both our cases. I wish you two the best.
