TINA – Tina was born in 2000 and had herpes in her right eye. I worked for a lady who owned a landscaping business and she fostered cats and kittens. In 2001 she fostered Tina a tortie. Tina needed sab in her eye and ½ a lysine twice a day. Tina would lie on my desk and wait for me by the door. Jackie finally told me that she needed to take Tina back on Friday. I thought about Tina and the possibility that nobody would adopt her because of her eye problem. I asked to return Tina to the shelter so I could adopt her. She came home with me and immediately took care of Baby my tortie that was 18 years old and looked like Tina. She was prim and proper and had so much love to give. She loved giving me kisses on the tip of my nose. Tina also came to me and opened her mouth when I hollared "Silly pilly time" so I could give her the pill and put the sab in her eye. Within a month, Baby’s organs began to fail and she died in my arms. Tina went into a depression. Jackie then fostered Simon a light and dark gray tabby who was several months old. When she told me that Simon had to go back to the shelter on Monday, I asked if I could take him home over the weekend. It was love at first sight. Tina came out of her depression and they were inseparable all weekend. I took Simon back to the shelter and adopted him. In 2007 Tina got FIP and passed away on June 6, 2007. My friend who I was living with became highly allergic to cats. A friend that I worked with said her mom was looking for a mate for her cat Frankie. Simon got his forever home. I miss Tinalina so much. Having rescues are the greatest joy in the universe.
