Miracle Whip

My little Miracle. She has earned the name indeed. Miracle Whip was an extremely small little girl in a litter of 9. Their mom was feral and they were taken from her by a good Samaritan wanting and thinking she was doing good. However, little Miracle Whip developed fading kitten syndrome and I had to tube feed her every 3 hours. She quickly regained her strength to the point of biting the tube and proceeded to swallow it, all 6" of it. The tube was stuck. That day her first surgery was unsuccessfull in removing the tube. We were sent to another Vet and another surgery was underway. My sweet little girl coded twice and came back to me. There was concern of brain damage and swelling from lack of oxygen. She was unable to hold her head still, stand up or function. It was touch and go. The Vet said she probably would not make it. Well I spent the night up with her and the next morning she was running around as if nothing happened. A Strong little girl in my book. 
Things were good for a day until she was wrestling with her sister who bit her in the neck. My poor baby yet again injured. She soon developed 2 large abscesses in the neck, terrible swelling in the throat. I thought there is no way she could beat this. Well I was never so wrong. Once again she recovered and is truly my little Miracle. We added Whip because of the energy and fight to live she has in her little body. She truly is a Miracle. 
If you have room in your heart and home for Miracle Whip please come and visit her on Saturday at Petco on I-10 & Ray Road from 11-3, ask for her foster mom Monica.
