I’ve waited a full year before writing about my experience with Otto's pituitary tumor because upon reflection I get so emotional I can't keep going. It’s time I wrote his story. Otto is a 3 legged big beautiful black cat with so much personality that when trucks pull up to the house he will climb in the back, when I have friends or family over Otto takes a chair that has been pulled up and watches the group.

She was also eating all the time. “I couldn’t feed her enough,” says Hunt. “It was never enough.”
