(1999 Nov~2000 July)After Margaret leaved, about 1 month later, Adan started to sick, still not sure about the cause of illness now. First the vet said Adan's alimentary canal has some problem. And doing X-ray, the vet said Adan's heart is smaller than the other same size cats, so it is better not let Adan doing too crazy exercise. When Adan running for too long time, must comfort his emotion to calm, or his heart can't bear it. And also vet saw his tummy "suspected" had some water, "probably" FIP(vet was not sure). Anyway, since his sisters all gone, Adan continued sick over 6 months!!!!! When I have sometime between class and class, I must went home staying with Adan, during that time, even my classmate's father help me drive Adan to the vet. I still very thankful to my classmate and her father now.
Adan is also kind of cat that didn't cooperate eating medicine. Very very hard to feed him medicine. The VET also warm us about FIP and heart illness...etc any kind of symptoms and results, to let us "prepare". Adan was very very weak, too weak to walk and jump. Bring Adan to VET too many times, caused my money and saving money all gone, in that time I was only a student, so I really don't have so much money afford Adan's medical bill. Pamilla for working and study sometimes need to go to the other country, so Toshie and I didn't ask her for help first. We were keeping afraid using Adan and saving eat more support Adan's medical.
One night, I nerved myself going to Father's room to ask him draw my pocket money in advance 1 month for Adan's medical bill. Because we have running up vet a little money. And because Adan is stepmom's last eyesore. Dad and stepmom command me bring Adan to the vet and talk to the vet that we don't want to keep Adan anymore! Or they even suggest me just abandon Adan next to the road. They think Adan is keeping sick more than a half year, they think Adan won't recover. How couldn't they see our hard work for Adan? I was crying and crying to beg Daddy just save Adan, and Toshie also attended begging dad to save Adan. But Father refuse to help. He thinks shouldn't use pocket money to do this. Stepmom even spoke very bad words, she said when our mommy went to the rainbow brige, Toshie and I mustn't cry so hard like we cry for Adan. I was very very very angry and sad, even my classmate's dad could help, how couldn't my dad but even let my stepmom say this evil words...
So, Toshie and I went back to our room, hug very sick Adan crying for hours and hours. And, Pamilla came back from work and understood the whole situation. After Pamilla ask me not to beg my dad for help. Then, we three back to my Dad's house. Pamilla just like a Mars!! Formally made a annoucement to Dad and stepmom: " Since now, Adan's medical bill, when michico and Toshie can't afford, I pay. Michico and Toshie maybe don't wanna bother me because I just started to work, but I can afford our cat's bill. Next time when they have problems, they find me, You have no right to command us to sent Adan away or ask us to abandon Adan!!!" (Pamilla was so chic~! "
Dad and stepmom were shocking, especially Dad. His own 3 daughters all against him and all speak for Adan. This was our family the first revolution. Although we keep Adan, but during time to time, stepmom often said to me acidly " in your heart, a cat is not important than father." I just ignore her saying. And I save her evil words, I won't type here to pollute Adan's blog.
Medicine was very bad taste, but Adan still have eaten a little bit inside his body.
Adan loves biting straw very much.
After family revolution 2 months. Adan still not good. I didn't get it, don't know if the VET was not good enough or what. We were living in everyday pray. One day, I went to the pet shop seeing the cat grass. So I brought one to planted at home. And it growed. I bring the cat grass in front of Adan, it was a miracle!! Adan was walking very hard for over a half year, always lying, he suddently stood up and running to the cat grass and beginning to eat~! 兩歲多的阿丹第一次嚐到貓草的美味。他一直吃個不停，我們看見他這麼有活力也很開心。
More than 2 years old Adan first time tasted for cat grass, he can't stop eatting and eatting, we were so surprised and very happy seeing his had so many energy.
After continue eating cat grass 3 days, Adan was back, back to running and jumping~! We brought him to vet, the vet said he is very healthy just like never sick before. So, Toshie and I named cat grass is miracle grass. That is why I often plant cat grass for Adan now. Because I believe cat grass could bring Adan many good health.
After eating cat grass 2 weeks, Adan can back to jump "super high". Sometimes Dad and stepmom ask how is Adan's illness condition. We didn't speak much. But, their planning to see Adan "naturally gone" was fail. Adan was back to healthy, and can staying with us for more time.
Without 2 sisters. Adan started to learn the funny of watching pigeons, pigeon sisters were becoming his best sisters, since that time.
