Guest Blog by Kateryna Fury, Nosferspratu Update
Deciding where to begin this update was more harrowing than the last few months in the Nosferspratu household. Trying to figure out how to say thank you enough has also been quite the task. Two small words that never seem to encompass the sheer amount of gratitude that can be experienced in this world. Two small words that are all I have to thank all of the people who aided Sprite and myself. Thank you to everyone who shared the initial request for help, thank you for everyone who donated, and thank you especially to the person who took most of the burden on themself. Each share, thought, donation and action created a miracle.
Sprite is not just doing well, she is doing amazingly. Right out of surgery the vet immediately told me that the surgery went better than the best case scenario. With each follow up and every day it became clear that the surgery wasn’t just a success but how badly it was needed. I’ve gotten the joy of watching a cat who is ten years old start acting like a kitten. This has lead to a small bit of mayhem in the household, but it is welcome mayhem.
Despite her perpetually cranky demeanor Sprite is doing great. She’s gotten argumentative around meds time, though still takes them in what I can only conclude is a gesture of “Okay human, for you.” She looks younger, due to a lot of the swelling leaving her face. She is playing and out pacing the younger two cats, one of whom is still technically a kitten. She has less pain, and seeing the sheer joy in her movements is breath taking. In fact the biggest side effect of the surgery is one no one could predict, she is having fewer reactions that are caused by her autoimmune problem.
Two little words which are never enough may be all I have to give but every one of you gave me a great gift. From Sprite, Sylvani, and Selena Fury as well as their human; Thank you.
