What is #teamfrida?
To get here we must start at the beginning. Frida was a rescue cat who was thought to have been hit by a car. She was living at a retirement center as a “friendly feral” cat. She went missing for 10 days and when she returned the left side of her face was swollen, infected and she walked in circles. She was scooped up and taken to the vet. She went to surgery to have teeth removed as they were crumbling- adding to the thought she had been hit. Her prognosis wasn’t good- but she kept on fighting and eating- purring all along. After 2 weeks in their care- I stepped up to adopt her- only seeing her pictures. I loved her. Over the course of the first week she had breathing problems- an abscess was growing. We had that taken care of. She was eating and healing. 5 days later it grew again. This time my vet said there wasn’t an X-ray done before she was adopted and suggested we take an X-ray and know what we are dealing with. When I got the call that it was cancer and it started locking her jaw and decimated the left side of her face- there was only one decision. She was really sick. 2 weeks and 1 day was all we had her. She passed away January 2, 2018. And in that time numerous animals have been rescued in her name. #teamfrida was created and shared around the world. I started keeping track- naming and numbering each one- when suddenly it took off and it’s literally in the hundreds!
A sweet kitty name Frida aka Frida Fries - a girl who loved watching Parks and Recreation- Leslie Knope was her spirit human. She made the best biscuits and we are the lucky ones to have known her.
Who am I- my name is Pamela May- just a girl with a hashtag, trying to make a difference in the world of rescue.
