Cali
Anonymous from Waterford

We cannot begin to tell you how wonderful the staff at this animal hospital was when we brought a dear dear cat into the hospital after going through the clothes dryer.......... Our cat was almost lifeless when she first was discovered in our dryer. We rushed it to the animal hospital and they took us right in before they were actually opened for the day. They cared for her as if she was their own dear friend and animal. So many of the staff were right there to console us while Dr. Germano was tending to our dear cats needs, which were many to even give her a chance at life again. We never thought she would come back home to us, but after 3 days of constant care day and night, getting various treatments to help her recover, she came home with us. However she still needed round the clock needs which we were more than happy to do if it meant having her with us for several more years. I am pleased to say Cali is doing very well. She is still the boss of the house and does as she wishes and demands when she wishes. But we would not have it any other way. Hopefully she will never jump in the dryer again, but we now know that it is one of her many hiding places, so we never leave the door open and we always even though the door is closed, look before we turn it on as I have no doubt she could probably figure how to open the door. She is our miracle cat. All ended well due to the kind, caring, concerned and educated staff at the Animal Health Center in Clifton Park, NY. When they say cats have nine lives I do believe that, but I think the day she went through the dryer probably took 5 of those nine lives.
