Clover, the Cat of the Day
Name: Clover
Age: Six years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Domestic Shorthair
Home: North Carolina, USA
   I rescued Clover when he was three months old. He was a patient at the animal hospital I was working at. At this young age, he kept getting urinary blockages and he had to be catheterized several times. His parents couldn't afford his treatment anymore, euthanasia was the only option at this point. I couldn't allow this to happen, he was such a trooper and so sweet. I asked his parents if they would surrender him to me for continuation of his medical care. Luckily, they agreed and the rest is history.

    Clover continues to have urinary issues every few months, but we deal with them, and I have managed so far to keep him comfortable and happy. He is as sweet as ever and gentle with us, but occasionally he aggravates his kitty siblings. He is very playful and he can be very kittenish. He enjoys his window shelf for sunning purposes, and enjoys the "cat safe" (unbreakable ornaments) tree at Christmas. I never regretted my decision. He did actually get named for the lucky clover leaf. His original name was Ty, but I renamed him because he and I were so lucky to meet each other. Although he may not be Irish, he and I would like to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day!
