Read his story written by her loving mum Mimi on how Fiona got to them. :)

Nine pm on a Tuesday evening, we heard a knock on our front door. Matt went to answer it, listened, closed the door and said “it’s for you.”When I opened the door I was met by a neighbor, her little daughter, and this tiny orange face peeking at me from a cardboard box.

They had found her in the street all alone, and had no idea what to do with her. One glance and of course we took her in. She had a nasty fungus covering the last inch of her tail, and a patch on her abdomen, but otherwise appeared healthy. We estimated her age at 3 weeks at the time and bottle fed her until she was ready to graduate to a plate. She quickly became known as Fiona Glenanne for her feisty personality.

Copper bonded with her very quickly as a kitten, and they spent many hours snuggled together on my desk.

She has a condition called feline hyperesthesia. It is a condition that causes such severe discomfort that as a kitten, Fiona often bloodied her own tail during an episode, and often attacked anyone who happened to be in the area. As she got older, the episodes increased in frequency and severity until we finally put her on a twice daily medication to ease her symptoms. We still have to be very careful and especially vigilant at observing her posture and expressions. She loves people but only allows petting on or around her face. Any sort of restraint causes such a level of discomfort that she lashes out aggressively. Stress exacerbates her condition but Fi has developed her own coping mechanism. Anytime she is startled or often after episodes of her condition, she comes and demands to sit on my chest. She then wraps her paws around my neck and nuzzles her nose in, kneading rather aggressively. She has been known to break the skin on either side of my neck, but it is so worth it to know I can offer her that comfort. Fi is an avid tree climber, plays fetch, and loves to ride around on Matt’s shoulders. She is one of our strongest personalities and a real joy in our lives.

Guest Star: Ronronthérapie by Martine!

Standard

Hello Katzenworld,

I am Martine, creator of ronronthérapie page on Facebook. Ronronthérapie means “cat purr healing” in French.

1_SDEXMOKB

I started this page in 2013 when I lost my beloved Kitty, a ginger, awesome cat of 12 years, who was the greatest purring cat ever.

Kitty used to sleep absolutely every night above my head, on my pillow and purr all night long. Unfortunately I also lost my second purring cat called Felix to cancer 6 months after Kitty died. I miss them so dreadfully. My page is dedicated to my sweet Kitty first of all, and to all the cats we miss and all the ones who bring us pure happiness daily, thanks to their purring power.

102_0296 102_0295 102_0294Purr healing  is so obvious for me. By posting links and pictures, I wish to demonstrate the benefits of cats purring to human beings.

All pictures are welcome and I am happy to like and share all other pages dedicated to cats all over the world!

Thank you to @KatzenworldBlog for posting my story and please come and visit Ronronthérapie on Facebook!
