In the new vet hospital Persia showed up to be a strong and happy kitten, never afraid of people or other animals. In fact, during the months she spent there, Persia was always going out in her wheelchair to the hospital hallway in order to greet new "patients" (including very large dogs that were surprised by her friendliness). Furthermore, Persia always approached people to pet her too, becoming quite a famous kitty in that hospital!
In time we all learned that Persia has: sensitivity in her hind legs, she can control her pee and poo, and every day she is getting better thanks to the exercises she has to do. However, it is going to take a long time to know how much movement capacity she will be able to recover. Consequently, she needs to keep getting her exercises and therapy done.
While Persia was getting physical therapy, I started to look for a foster home for her, so that she could stay in a home environment instead of always in a hospital. Given that I am a rescuer with several rescued cats at home and I also have a full time office job, I knew I needed a foster parent who could help me with Persia. Eventually I found two wonderful foster homes for Persia. In the first one, Persia was super happy for a few months, living and enjoying the time with the cat of the house (Augi) and her foster mom (Laura). However, when Augi passed away due to cancer (at 14-years old), Laura was heartbroken and felt she could not have cats at her home for a while.
