September 6, 2018: When Speedy was taken to a clinic for grooming her seriously matted hair on August 2, we learned that she lost a tremendous amount of weight, weighing only 4.7 pounds. The vet went through extensive tests including a biopsy on her small intestine to get her diagnosed. The biopsy results indicated that Speedy has developed low-grade intestinal lymphoma. She began taking oral chemotherapy treatment on August 31. One of our RRCC members has graciously agreed to become her “permanent foster” and take care of her. She’s since been enjoying indoor life and the company of her feline friends in her new home.
Speedy is a stunning calico who hangs out with Polly in the UC area – she got her name because of her lightening speed as a kitten! Speedy was born to Big Mama, a large fluffy Calico who lived at the UC Wall with Polly, on campus in the fall of 2005.
