Briar’s Mom, Mary Frances

Mary Frances is recovering from her spaying operation. She had some complications. One ovary was tiny and dislocated, so a long incision had to be made just to find it! Also, in her abdomen, there were two calcified masses that had to be removed and sent to a lab for analysis. It turns out that she had an ectopic pregnancy. The vet said it was a good thing we had rescued her because another pregnancy would have been dangerous for her.

After spending a small fortune on her (and worrying for a week that the growths might be cancerous tumors) you’d think she would appreciate us but she doesn’t. She just hisses and spits at us and treats us with utter disdain. We have to wear gloves to handle her and she bites right through them. Ah, but look how pretty she is. It’s so sad that no one treasured her or even wanted her when she was a kitten. How I wish people understood the vital importance of spaying and neutering pets…

She's beautiful. perhaps after many free meals she see you as the angel you are. I hope a year from now she only purrs and cries when accidently locked up.

Thanks, Maryellen. Hopefully, she will come to know how much we love her...

She'll come around...how will she be able to resist your love?
But she may not acknowledge that directly. Cats are kind of like guys that way!!!!
But unconditional love will always win out...
