A Mansfield News Journal reporter reflects on Katy the Cat’s debut

I should have known not to doubt Katy the cat.

My adopted long haired tabby cat was quite sick for much of last summer. Her ongoing tummy issues turned into five-day periods of Katy not eating. It happened twice.

The second time, in September, staff at Phillips Animal Hospital checked to see if her organs were shutting down.

I could have lost Katy only three years after bringing her home.

She had other ideas. A combination of a different food, a steroid, and an anti-sickness drug resulted in only four incidents of vomiting over 14 weeks.

Katy is doing so much better, even though she needs to gain weight. When we last saw her in September, she had gone from 12 to 8.7 pounds.
