General information:

Fidget came as somewhat of a surprise in more ways than one. I arrived back at the shelter one day and found a box of what I thought were kittens. Only one had survived and that was Fidget. I guess they were about 8 weeks old or so and I rushed Fidget straight into the vet to get her on fluids etc to give her a fighting chance. Despite being in such an emaciated condition she was a hissing, spitting little ball of dirt and flying fur when picked up. The vet quickly checked her over and then checked her little gums and teeth and then double and triple checked. He looked at me in stunned amazement and pronounced that this wasn't a kitten but an adult. I was shocked to say the least. After a couple of days at the vets Fidget headed back to the shelter much to everyone in the clinics relief. It seems that getting this little firebrand rehydrated had some nasty side effects like more hissing and spitting combined with very fast claws and an all consuming hatred of the human species in general. It took about 18mths before I felt Fidget was strong enough to be able to survive having her vet work done. She's hardly grown at all since arrival and getting weight onto her was a monumental task. Her disposition hadn't changed much either. Although to my ever lasting relief she didn't try to attack me she still didn't want to associate either. It wasn't until about 6 mths after her vet work had been done that I looked at her one day beside one of the other cats and realised to my astonishment that she'd begun to grow. Now years down the track Fidget is a pretty normal sized cat. Small cat yes but normal size. She still looks angry with the world but she's mellowed with age and lets not only myself but one of my friends who is also a regular volunteer have all those much sort after cuddles. I wouldn't suggest anyone else try it mind you. If you'd like to help towards Fidgets ongoing costs by sponsoring her please click on the sponsor me link at the bottom of this post.
