I have two cats, Millie and Squeaky.
Millie is short for Amelia Earhart, Millie got that name cause when she was a kitten she was an daring explorer, she has little fear and since she is part Maine Coon she has the gentle giant aspect to her. She will be four this year. We also call her Miracle Millie.
Three years ago she got deathly sick and when we took her to the emergency clinic they told us "Sorry, nothing we can do, make her comfortable and good luck." We did not accept that response and took her up to Michigan and found out she had a rare unknown blood disease where she could not produce white (I think) blood cells). So that summer she got 2 blood transfusions and that fall another one, the following year another two, last year she got her last one and we and the vets think her poor body could not take anymore. Then the miracle happened, I know it may sound funny but my wife and are praying folks, and we pray for a lot of people, well we prayed God's will for Millie and when she first got sick her blood count thing was 3.5% they were amazed she was still living and breathing. Normally it's supposed to be 45%. While all the transfusions were going on it raised up to 14-21%. Last year it got as high as 31% and she got to get off some of her meds and then she crashed down to 11%. She got the blood transfusion and back on the some of the meds and slowly raised up to the low 20s. Then the miracle happen last fall. Her monthly blood transfusion stabilized at 42%! She is a miracle cat.
Squeaky is her exact opposite, she is a talker (hence her name, lol) and she is also very, very nervous. But she is a bird catcher, which really bothers my wife (and to me to a lesser extent, she is just following her instincts). She is smart, sneaky and squeaky and quite the outdoors cat hunter.
Hope you enjoy these, you an probably guess there names by the pics and my short description.
