Please give a warm welcome to today’s Star Kit, Little Key Key. She is a one and a half year old Bombay from Lansing, Michigan.

Little Key Key

She was given to me by my daughter’s friend. She was flea infested, severely dehydrated and anemic, with bloody scabs all over her. We took her to the vet and they did an ultrasound and told us she was pregnant with 4 kittens, but 2 weren’t alive. Thankfully we were prepared for that when she delivered. She also said she could tell this wasn’t her first litter. My daughter asked her friend and she said when she was just 6 months old, she had a litter of 6, and they all died. All I could do is cry for this sweet innocent little girl. I can’t imagine how awful her life was. The vet also told us she is a Bombay. I didn’t know what that meant. They need a lot of love and attention, and they’re very vocal. They were bred to look like a mini Black Panther, with a silky shiny coat. Which hers wasn’t because she was so unhealthy, but it is now. She looked so sad and was nearly dead. I gave my all to save her. Medicine, supplements and feeding around the clock. I’ve learned so much, and sooo worth it. I was afraid her little spirit was broken for good, but she has done a complete turn around. She’s happy, healthy and she has so much love to offer. We can see how grateful she is to get a second chance, with love and happiness that she so deserves. She truly is amazing, unique and extremely intelligent. She’s an amazing mom too. She’s very protective and still won’t leave them for more than 3 minutes at a time. They’re already 6 1/2 weeks. I think it’s because of how awful her life was. Surprisingly, she has let me handle her babies from day one, and she’s even picked them up and brought them to me, lol. But I can’t bare the thought of giving her babies to anyone. I don’t ever want to see sadness in her big eyes again. But this is her story and I’m now a cat person.
