Cookie's story: Cookie was a stray that appeared out on the street in front of our house one Saturday evening in early May, 2023.
We have no idea where he came from, but suspect that he was a lost housecat, or dumped by his former owners. He was literally skin and bones when we brought him into the house. Cookie is a very calm and gentle cat and loves to nuzzle faces.After a trip to the vet, they placed his age at around 14 years old, so he is quite the Senior Kitty. His bloodwork indicated anemia and a thyroid issue, for which he is now on medication. We also also discovered that he is deaf in both ears. We suspect he also has a possible respitory infection and an ear infection.
As it turns out, Cookie has become a permanent member of the family. We were unable to find any rescue who had room to take him in, and he was such a sweet cat that we couldn't help falling in love with the old kitten. So with us Cookie stayed until it was finally his time to cross the Rainbow Bridge, which he did in the early hours of January 18th, 2024. He was only with us a short time, but he left an indelible mark on our hearts and in our lives. He will be missed as much as we miss all the other companions we have lost over the years. It was a blessing to have known him and to have him in our home for the time he was there. We still have Cookie t-shirts and other merchandise in our Design by Humans store for anyone who wants to show off the old kitten, and help us to cover some of the medical expenses he incurred.
