Kindness Journey – Day 77 – A Wonderful Veterinarian

Hal The Cat has a tough early life. He was a feral cat, living in the streets for almost 2 years when he was trapped and sent to a local shelter. He was treated kindly, but he was still extremely high-strung and nervous.

In December 2014, my partner Hal (person) and I were dealing with the loss of our cat Maxwell

We were sad, obviously, but we were ready to make room in our hearts and home for another cat. We went to the local shelter hoping to find one.

A cat reached out and grabbed Hal (person) by the back of his jacket. I looked at the name tag on the cage and knew we had found our next cat.

That is why my blog is littered with references to Hal The Cat or Hal (person).

Earlier this year, Hal The Cat was diagnosed with Nast Cell Disease. Thankfully, the tumors that started appearing weren’t cancerous. Hal The Cat isn’t in any pain but we want to get him better. The traditional vet accomplished nothing other than performing a cash-removal surgery on our wallets.

Hal (person) spoke with an online friend who recommended a Chinese herbal veterinarian. We decided to try her and are very glad we did. The new vet prescribed a mixture of herbs that seem to be reducing the size of the tumors.

We just moved and that vet is now approximately 100 miles away, but we will continue taking Hal The Cat to her. He enjoys the visits and is completely comfortable with her.

Hal The Cat is extremely special to us. We will do whatever we can to make him better.
