Why Izzy is so special:

Izzy helped me pick my husband! I had just started dating my husband when I adopted Izzy. She had an allergic reaction to her immunizations and the vet had to give her an injection to save her life. Unfortunately it hit her sciatic nerve and paralyzed her leg. To try to reverse the nerve damage, she needed physical therapy. My husband did kitty cat PT with her every day. Thanks to him, she regained feeling in her leg and the ability to walk! I don't know who is sweeter, but I'm lucky to have them!

If your pet could talk, what would he or she tell us about you?:

I am totally a Daddy's girl. I don't know what it is, but I just love the smell of his feet! I can often be found curled up on his shoes and I sleep by his feet every night. He's also the only person I permit to pick me up. With other people it just seems humiliating, but with my dad it's ok because he knows just the right place to scratch behind my ears.
