Martha was found outside, barely old enough to walk, alone at 1 am. She was bottle fed by her foster Mom and has become a loving, affectionate kitten. She has been diagnosed with a significant heart murmur. After seeing a specialist it was determined that she has 6 months to a year+ to enjoy her days on earth. We know that there is no possibility of adoption but are keeping her picture here temporarily for anyone who might like to be kept updated. This is a very special kitten.
Martha has grown into a sleek, shiny beautiful teenager. This picture was taken August 15th. She is still as active as any other kitten.
Martha LOVES her foster sister Jenny. Jenny is getting up there in years, yet she tolerates being loved by this unusual little kitty. Their favorite time of day is nap time. Any time Jenny curls up to snooze, so does Martha.
A Note from Martha
I haven’t given you an update is a while so I thought I would take this opportunity to say “Hi!”. I saw my doctor today. All she could do was shake her head in disbelief. She just doesn’t know how I can still be walking on all fours and be looking so good. All the experts said I would be lucky to see one year. Well here is it exactly 1.5 years later and I am still here. Woo Hoo!! LIFE IS GOOD!! I live every day as if it will be my last – and let me tell you I make the best of it. I tear around the house, jump over Jenny, chase Peanut and wrestle with her (when she lets me). My appetite is terrific and the Dr. said to just keep on doing whatever I like to do. She turned my paw over, looked at it and said “I don’t see an expiration stamp on here so go have fun”. So that’s what I am going to do.
Thanks for all your inquiries about me.
