Hello SphynxLair! My name is Emily, & I've been gone for quite some time but decided to hop on back to see how everyone is doing, & reintroduce myself considering I've missed a lot. :)

I adopted Meeka from Craigstlist in July of 2012. She came to me with a serious eye infection! We were told that she was attacked my the older male stud, & he had hit her in the eye. It took us about a week through texting to finally go & get Meeka. She was on two different antibiotics to clear the infection from her right eye, & was evaluated that the eye pushed back into socket would be better off being completely removed.

I know that a lot feel that we shouldn't have taken a cat in that we couldn't have afford for vet bills, but we have been doing as much as we can. She gets her vet care, she's seen by a vet annually, she gets any medications she needs, she's very happy & healthy. We've come a long way, & continue to do better. The only discomfort Meeka experiences anymore with her eyes is from the left which is pushed back into socket. It tends to drain discharge which dries up around her eye, making it red & a bit tender. I try to keep up with this as much as possible with soft cloths, & she doesn't seem to mind.

I hope I can be accepted back into the community again, & I'm glad for you guys to open your ears to listen to my little story. Meeka has blossomed, & still does normal cat things! She chases after her catnip crinkle toys, plays with the other cats, & her favorite play hour is 10PM (because she gets excited knowing dad is coming home, & she's in love with him)!

We've had so many ups & downs in life, & we're just now leveling out with our new house we just moved into. I have made a page on Facebook to dedicate to her alone & be able to post updates on everything, including her surgery date & progress. Meeka does mean everything to me, & I do the absolute best that I can.

Thank you so much for reading my long story, I hope you enjoyed learning about Meeka as I have over these two years together. Her personality is amazing & she's the most loving kitty of the three I own. She's currently snuggled in my lap, watching me type as we speak. :) I love the Sphynx breed, & missed being around SphynxLair & seeing everyone's kitty!

Welcome back!

I read about Meeka on a facebook group, and I am wishing you all the best in raising the money for her surgery.

The pictures from when you first got her until now is amazing, she looks so much healther and happier.

But, just so you know.. linking to fund raisers / donation pages is against the terms & conditions of Sphynxlair.

Hope you will stick around and share her progress with us :)

Thank you so much! It was amazing to see the response, I didn't really expect it to be honest! It warms my heart to see all the nice comments & love from the community. It helped me overcome my fear. I just talked to the vet this morning & it excites me to see this finally get done. Meeka definitely deserves it. :)

Yes! Seeing the before/after pictures now still shocks me. I can't believe how far we have come. I'm just glad to see her so happy & healthy. I always love seeing her play around, because it's insane how she can find her way around the house to chase her cat buddies without her sight! She's so amazing!

Welcome back... Meeka looks quite happy and snuggly next to your kitty. I look forward to hearing more about her and I will be praying she continues to do great.

There is no love like a sphynx love or that of the owner of a sphynxie!
