Artist's Description

Peppurr Pooh as we call her has been with our family for almost 10 years now, we found her as a kitten being tossed about by Magpies, skinny, almost blind, ear mites, cat flu, flea infested and close to death.

Of course I couldn’t let her die without trying everything to save her. I did what any animal lover would do, I took her to the Vet who said she would be lucky to make it through the night, well she did to everyone’s surprise.

I fed her by an eye dropper, cleaned her eyes almost every hour with saline solution and eye drops, gave her medication and vitamins. I bathed her and gave her unconditional love.

She would suckle on my earlobe if she snuggled up under my shoulder, her purring almost gave me an ear ache LOL.

She never thought of herself as a cat, and still doesn’t, she is almost human, she doesn’t meow like a normal cat, she calls me “Mam Mowh” I think its sweet since my daughter would call me Mummy it was as though Peppurr would mimic her.

About 3 years ago, we almost lost her, I purchased a Flea product which contained an ingredient called ‘Permethrin’ as it turns out it is toxic to cats, she began fitting and foaming at the mouth, her face muscles were twitching and her body was shaking beyond belief, I rushed her to the Vet who fortunately for me flushed her system with a drip, kept her in for almost a week, it was touch and go. But they saved her! Thank God for Vets!
I want to warn everyone out there to read the ingredients of flea products anything containing this Permethrin should be avoided at all costs. even those insecticide sprays that intermediately spray in the home on a timer.. don’t use them if you have cats!

Tonight I brought her in and just had to take some pic’s of her, I didn’t use a flash because it would hurt her eyes.

She is such a darling :))
