This is Pixel, who is animal-lover and Facebook friend Beatrice Schafroth’s very cute cat. She (Beatrice) shared this sad but adorable picture and I begged her to let me use it, which she kindly did. Unfortunately, Pixel is a little under the weather right now. So Beatrice took him to the vet and shared this update:
“Pixel has a nasty ear infection and a viral cold. He still has some fever. Unfortunately he also has a heart rumor, (murmur?) which I think he is born with. Hopefully he will outgrow that one. We are taking care of his ear infection with allopathic medicine for now, but I am boosting his immune system with homeopathy. He is so happy to be back home and is keeping warm under a comfy down blanket.” It sounds as if Pixel is one of the lucky kitties who will get all the TLC he deserves–in addition to his stylish paw-print blanket!
