Mara from GERMANY writes: "...Hey Chris, ten years ago I found a cat which somehow got locked up in our garden house. My family and I fed her, since she probably was locked up about three days. She decided to stay. After naming the cat Nostradamus we found out she's female so we started to call her Nossie. She was already about seven years old and looked like a pirate with her droopy eye and a cut in her left ear I just visited my parents house, but Nossie looked terrible. She was really skinny as if she would starve to death every second soon, was loosing lots of hair and she couldn't get her tail up anymore. It was horrible. My sister and I took her to the vet. She was on a drip for nearly two days, then died I still feel really bad for taking her there. I knew she was going to die and even though she probably suffered a lot I think it would have been better, if she died at our home and not in a cage at some vets house. It was the greatest cat ever, always purring and even cat haters somehow loved her. Me and my family will miss her a lot. Mara (22), Germany. Here's an older picture when she was still healthy."
