Happy Belated 18th Birthday Olympia
Today we want to tell you about our friend, Olympia, who turned 18 years old last Friday Aug. 24th. Olympia is a very special kitty who lives in Noo York City. She is very well traveled and goes to Oak Island, NC and Buffalo, NY. Olympia was diagnosed with cancer after her daddy found a golf ball sized lump on her right shoulder. The lump was removed, as well as a good portion of her right shoulder and back muscle. Olympia went through Chemotherapy every two weeks for a few months and she lost a lot of weight, but pulled through with the help of her Mommy and Daddy and lots of support from her Grandma H.
After all that she was feeling pretty good but has since been diagnosed with several other ailments including Bladder stones and a gastro-intestinal disorder requiring herr to take Pregnizone every day to keep her from throwing up. Recently she was also diagnosed with Diabetes, so she gets a shot of Insulin twice a day. Her Mommy and Daddy are good with keeping her on a schedule and as a result of it, she gets to eat some yummy new cat food and just go about her business as usual.
Olympia's beautiful floofy belly has been shaved many times in the past and she used to love laying next to her daddy in bed while he scratched it. Olympia has many nicknames including "Goo", "Goose", and "Big Earl". Though she has a feeling when her mommy and daddy are calling her Big Earl, they mean Big Girl, as her hearing isn't as good as it used to be.
Olypia has a baby bean brother named Will who is now 3 and a half years old. Will is a very sweet boy and makes sure Olympia's food dish is always full.
We're so happy to know such a great and wonderful cat like Olympia. She is such a positive role model and knows the value of family and unconditional love.
Happy Birthday Olympia! We love you!
