How We Met

Marco had feline kidney disease and the vet told us he wouldn't make it, but we refused to give up on Marco knowing the cure for feline kidney disease was in the process of being made. We thought he could make it until the cure was made, but sadly he died just 2 and 1/2 days before the cure was opened to the public. We were devastated. Although we know that he is happy know as he explores the trees and parks of heaven.

A new study finds that children who lived with dogs or cats during their first year of life got sick less frequently than kids from pet-free zones. The study, published in the Journal Pediatrics, provides fresh evidence for the counterintuitive notion that an overly clean environment may not be ideal for babies.
haring a home with a pet may be an early form of cross-training for the body's defense systems.

For the new study, European researchers tracked the health of 397 Finnish children born between September 2002 and May 2005. When the infants were 9 weeks old, parents began keeping weekly diaries to document a number of indicators of their children's health. Parents also noted when their babies were given antibiotics.

Babies with cats had a 6% advantage over those without feline family members. babies whose cats were indoors more than 16 hours a day were healthy 70.8% of the time. But in homes where the cat was inside for less than six hours a day, babies were healthy 78.2% of the time. For the sake of comparison, young children who lived in cat-free zones were healthy 66.1% of the time.

The researchers offered a possible explanation for the puzzling pattern: Pets that spent more time outdoors brought more dirt into their homes, giving babies more opportunities to encounter it. That exposure could have caused their immune systems to mature faster. The new findings could help assuage parents-to-be who worry about the health consequences of exposing their infant to a pet.

Hi Marco's mom
thank you for visiting Rainbow's page and leaving him a vote. We lost Rainbow to chronic renal failure, he was 21 years old, we still miss him very much. We are sorry to hear of Marco's passing from kidney disease. I'm sure that he is having a great time at the Rainbow Bridge waiting for the day when his mom arrives. We left you a vote.

Come visit me, Aria, Rainbow (in loving memory) 6/85 - 12/06 & Sammy.

Thanks
To all of the people who vote for my little angel, I know he loves all of you for making him one step closer to cat of the day. I know he wanted to be cat of the day but never got a chance.

Come visit me, Marco (in loving memory October 2001-May 2012), Albert & Daisy.
