Gendo is a pretty husky cat. He's also one of the sweetest animals I have ever known. When we rescued him from the animal shelter, he was very thin and had a persistent cough like he was trying to get a hairball up. The vet put him on prednisone which cleared up his breathing problems, but also caused him to gain a lot of weight. Today, he's a healthy, happy cat who likes to lay on my grandmother's kitchen table.
