This is Beijing. She came to Casa de Calmar, Best Friends Animal Society’s Feline Leukemia building, in August 2008. I was volunteering there when I saw this tiny skinny girl with big eyes sometimes popped up and ran through their lobby area. Joni, Calmar’s caregiver, told me they just had her only about a few days before and they just named her “Beijing” that day because that’s where Summer Olympic was held. This super sweet thing loved to play! I had a blast just playing with her. Feline Leukemia (FeLV) is a virus based disease which can suppress the cat’s immune system. Once they tested positive, they are usually the first ones to be put down at shelters and even at vets. But they can live long healthy lives and I heard Calmar had a kitty who lived like 19 years if not 21 years (I can’t remember which, sorry). And also some cats can successfully fight it off, Kitty Motel’s Jessica is an example. She used to live in Calmar, fought it off and moved to Kitty Motel. She’s now a very healthy gorgeous cat and she just donated her blood to a dying cat. Unfortunately, our Beijing has crossed over the rainbow bridge last week. She was only two years old but Beijing’s days were filled with love and happiness. She was surrounded and loved by many amazing people and her beloved Calmar Lobby brothers and sisters.
