This is Cici, whose life was cut tragically short.
Cici was rescued by a local rescue out of a bad situation. She was just getting acclimated to the good life, when she had her spay appointment, where it was found out that she had a heart issue.
The vet who did the spay surgery was not equipped to do a heart surgery so Cici was transferred to another hospital (EWU, I think) where she underwent another surgery. Sadly, she did not make it through.
Throughout this, there was a bright spot -- people cared. Cared enough to send donations for the surgery, cared enough to ask for status. Cared enough to remember her short life.
