Tessa is a permanent resident at Gypsy Cats.

Tessa has diabetic crashes from time to time. The picture above is Tessa at Dr. Lori's right after an episode.

Update January 2012: Tessa is now thriving and has not had any more episodes. The best news - she and her sister Lucille (named because she kept dislocing her shoulder as a tiny kitten) may have an adopter! Stay tuned for more information!
