Kiki Update: Basking in the sun!

Kiki - Feb. 2013
It's been 7 months since sweet Kiki arrived on transport from Leech Lake Reservation. In July, 2012 she was found by Rory (Leech Lake Animal Control Officer), along with her 4 pups, in an abandoned house in Leech Lake Reservation where she was in horrible shape. She was immediately taken to Animal Care Clinic in Bemidji. To read more of her story check out the following blogs:

Her bittersweet update on November 12, 2012:

Kiki was diagnosed with kidney failure in November, 2012. Her prognosis wasn't the best. She continues, however, to defy the odds and under the loving care of her mom, Mary, is being given every possible chance to beat a terminal diagnosis. According to her mom, "she loves to sit in the snow on a sunny day. I have to entice her in with treats :)" ... Her blood values have been going the wrong direction, however, Kiki's mom is working with the U and changing up her meds to slow down the progression. Kiki is also on some new meds to help her with pain management for her hip.

The sweet mama captured the hearts of so many. Let's continue to hold her in our thoughts and prayers.

Kiki has mastered the art of napping!
