This is a beautiful portrait!! My kitty, Chloe, was in the same shape when I rescued her. The vet said she might not make it, because of the fleas and respiratory infection that she had. She is 14 years old now. She has brought so much joy to my life!! Thanks for sharing this wonderful photo!! #6234608

Sheila, Hi! First, you have a GORGEOUS gallery! Wow! Second, I found this shot of your Abigail, and she DOES look like my Oscar! I doubt they are related, as we live in Western New York! lol We got Oscar from our local Humane Society. He has been WONDERFUL!! Just a joyful, sweet kitty :) He just jumped on my lap as I write this :) Thanks for your comments on his pictures! This one of Abigail is awesome, as obvioulsy the judges thought too!! #6393223

Thanks for all the kind words and rescue stories! Abigail weighs almost 4 pounds now, and I am completely head over heels in love with her. I awaken to the sound of her very odd purr in my ear EVERY morning. #6419672

Weighing in at 13 ounces today, I rescued Abigail a week ago so very close to death. She was either abandoned or orphaned, not sure which; she was beyond starving, emaciated and covered from head to toe with several hundred fleas, ears coated with mites, severe intestinal worms and respiratory distress. The changes that have occurred are mind-boggling. I have been fostering her for four days now, exhausting, completely unexpected but so rewarding to see her thriving. This particular shot was taken last evening. She has her eyes on my 11 year old, 67 pound collie, Mollie.

Abby update July 19th: 1 lb 12 oz; fleas all gone, mites (almost) gone; thriving, growing, pampered, spoiled and loved; Mollie the Collie even checks in on her while she is sleeping.

August 21st. My sweet Abigail made finalist. I am so thrilled that this was chosen by the judges! She now weighs 3.5 lbs and has the run of my house. She is loving and loved and is truly a blessing from above!
