JULY 16–Kitten Visits Cats

Visiting Mittens

Visiting Mittens

After her transplant, Caitlin will not be able to be around cats anymore. Which is sad because she loves cats so much! Today we drove far out into the country to a wonderful, no-kill humane society where we spent an hour and a half playing with the cats. Mittens, shown here, was the most painful kitty.  Abandoned by its owner. HOW anyone does that is beyond me. She was so confused by her cage that we let her out 3 times to play with her. So painful to have to leave her there!!  But a wonderful place, doing great work.

JULY 14–The Unthinkable Transplant, (Linked essay by Caitlin)

Caitlin & Andrew in 2013 Looking Good/Feeling Bad

In 2013: Looking Good. Feeling Bad

In this column for the Cystic Fibrosis Lifestyle Foundation, Caitlin talks about how the word “transplant” always terrified her.

It terrified me, too.

But that’s for another day. Right now, at 8:47pm on Monday, July 13, as I write this, there’s a rainbow over Pittsburgh, and Caitlin’s on the balcony with it.

Read the entirety of her thoughts here: The Unthinkable Transplant
