Pet of the week: Olivia Jane Bryant
This is Olivia Jane Bryant. On Jan. 17, she will be 20 years old — well over 100 in cat years. She loves drinking from the sink faucet, playing with cat toys, running up the stairs, going outside (under supervision because she is now deaf,) having her back rubbed, and of course eating and sleeping. She knows she has to shake hands before she gets a treat.
For the past three years she has been treated with Chinese medicinal herbs and eating raw (poultry) cat food which she loves. Once, several years ago, she hid in our RV when she went through a kitchen cabinet all the way under the floor to the back bedroom and we had to dismantle a lot of parts to find her.
When she was born she had a deviated sternum and heart problems. She had to be evaluated at the University of Georgia Veterinary school for her cardiac issues and at five months old we were able to adopt her from the vet’s office who found her and her sibling kittens and their mom.
This past year she had surgery twice within two weeks for an infected cyst on her stomach and then was fed by a feeding tube for several weeks. She really must have nine lives because she made it through all of that and has lived a good, long life. She has a very sweet temperament, the most beautiful green eyes, and everyone who meets her, even if they aren’t a “cat person,” loves her.
