Frederick suggested to her boyfriend that he come by the salon after getting off of work when Lenus was there. After meeting Lenus the first time, Frederick's boyfriend came in every day that week.
"He would pick him up and they’d fall asleep in the waiting room together," she said. “Every day we weren’t sure whether he was gonna make it."
The night Seely took Lenus home to try to see him through his seizures, Frederick was very worried she'd have to say goodbye to the kitten she thought would be hers. "When they told Kimmie to think about putting him down, I felt my heart drop," she said. "I was already invested."
Still, even if Lenus survived, Frederick and her boyfriend, who already had three dogs and one other cat at the time, would have to prepare for taking care of a blind cat.
