This elegant Oriental Black Tabby – now 6 years old – had three litters of lovely kittens for me, but then had major breeding difficulties.
Two years ago she nearly died with the cat flu. She did not eat for 15 days, was totally blocked up in the nose and had a high temperature. I nursed her at home, and gave fluids throughout the day and night for a long time. Her strong will and courage kept her going to the amazement of the vet.
Unfortunately often when there are a lot of cats in the same household, there can be one or two ‘bullies’. Jipijapa was bullied, and was happier in her outside unit. But I felt it was not fair for this to go on. So......... when a lovely lady, Julie, came to me looking for a mature cat ........................ the rest is history.
Jipijapa has won the hearts of her new owners as she did mine. I am pleased to say that she comes to stay every now and again, and purrs and purrs and purrs.
