It must be a miracle, the kitten is still with us.

She is getting stronger, no longer going into the type of choked respiration that usually precedes death.

She is eating more at each feeding (although she still gets some up her nose when she eats too fast and then sneezes for several minutes), her "system" is working (euphemism for the plumbing), and she is being carried around in my shirt to keep warm most of the time (can we say "spoiled rotten"?).

She was the hit of Sunday school today, almost upstaging the baptisms!

Should she make it, we will have to come up with a unique name. Anybody know how to say "miracle" in Hawai'an or Japanese or something?

  1. All I can think of is the Japanese for Divine Wind, and I'm not sure you want a kitten named Kamikaze :)

  2. In Spanish, Milagro is miracle - you could call her Mila for short! I actually have a blog friend in IN whose name is Milah!
    What a determined little fighter kitten she is and what a heart of gold you have. Bless you both!
