Hi. My name is Rachel, and I'm owned by a lovely white domestic short hair named Tilly. She's my very first cat, and quite possibly one of the loves of my life. Sadly, she's a bit of a challenge. Our vet calls her "special needs". She was abandoned twice before we adopted her, and since the day we brought her home at 12 weeks has had eating/pooping issues. This last weekend, we thought we were going to lose her. Our vet got us through the initial scare, but was very little help in how to prevent another 700.00 weekend. So, I've turned to the internet...which is terrifying. But it led me here, so I hope I can connect with some other cat-folks and help my dear girl live a long healthy life.
