A special message from Mariana at Furkids

Mariana from Furkids in metro Atlanta has a special message that she posted on the Furkids Facebook page earlier today:

Hi, I'm Mariana, and they say I'm a "Meer-Uh-Kull". I don't know what that means, but I THINK it means that everyone loves me! I have something strange inside of me called a "heart defect"...I saw that on the paper from my doctor visit. The nice people at the University of Georgia make movies of my heart sometimes. I am very good when they do that, and they carry me around afterward; telling me that they love me, and telling other people that I am a "Meer-Uh-Kull". I like that!

Every day I take special medicine. But mostly, I play, and sun myself on my Catio; and snooze on the cable modem and eat yummy stuff. I am a very happy girl! Foster Mom says that I will live with her forever and ever. She also says she and Foster Dad "sponsor" me, so that I get my special medicine; and visits to UGA. I think that means they love me! Foster Mom says that other kitties need sponsors, they can be "Meer-A-Kulls" too! Could you donate, or sponsor a special kitty, at And please share my story? I want lots of kitties to be "Meer-Uh-Kulls". We can start a club! Thank you, I love you!
