Cat Update: for Isaac Ramsey


(Most recent photo)

For those of you who don´t know, or remember, Lagrimas is a kitten we found at the Valdivia fish market back in March. We found her, a couple weeks old, sitting pathetically meowing as she was accidentally kicked by the crowds of people buying food. Her eyes were swollen shut and her fur was covered in fish guts and water.
We decided that we couldn't´t just leave her there.

So we found a box and scooped her into it. She did not like being in the box.We took her to the vet, got her shots, de-fleaed and formula to clean her eyes.

We nursed her back to health. She slept between us every night, and never peed or pooped outside of her make shift litter box. She was the most intelligent kitten we ever met. What were we going to do with this cat?It was March then and we still had a lot of time left to travel. We were also unaware of the fact that we would come back to Valdivia.

We had to find her a home.

One of the German students living in the hostel decided that she could take her back to Germany with her, where her family has a farm. It seemed perfect. So we left Valdivia without Lagrimas, while she boarded a plane for Berlin.

So Lagrimas, the most intelligent cat in the world, after two months of being quarantined in a German airport, now lives on a farm outside of Berlin.

She is happy and healthy, and although we miss her and secretly wish we could have brought her home with us, we know she is better off as a farm cat.

    I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.


  2. KITTY! I'm so glad you saved her. She looks so happy sitting in that German bowl.

  3. Yes! Not only am I honored to have my name in a blog entry title but I am just down right flattered you took the time to give us an update on the kitten per my request. I'm sure she's happy out on the farm, though I do wonder if she's picking up any German, it's a terribly difficult language for little cats to learn.
