Laura and her cat Jeffrey have really enjoyed Fur Shui! Here's how Jeffrey became part of Laura's life. a note from Laura:
Jeffrey is about 6 years old. I met him when I was working as a vet at one of the Los Angeles city animal shelters. He had been found limping down the side of a road, obviously hit by a car. His right rear femur was fractured beyond repair, and the leg had to be amputated. While he was recovering from his surgery, he developed a terrible upper respiratory infection. I would bring him home at night and on weekends to give him fluids, medicate him, and encourage him to eat. Needless to say, I bonded quickly with him. After a few days, he started to improve. He was eating well and walking around just fine with his 3 legs. I officially adopted Jeffrey, and he has been an amazing cat. He is a Siamese mix, so he is very vocal. He loves to carry things around the house, especially shoes. He cries loudly and "announces" that he is moving the shoe, then he expects to be petted and praised. He is such a character and always makes me smile. And he can run and play just as well as any of his 4-legged friends!
Thanks so much, and best wishes,
Laura (and Jeffrey)
