Arrival Story: A not so pretty, stray, pregnant cat, adopted a handsome young all white, blue eyed male cat, named BLUE. They were the best of friends. He let her sleep in his nice home, on the deck. It was late March, the nights were cold.
Basking in the sun, all day in the backyard. Laying in his arms, happy and carefree. Then on May 5th the mother to be(Icky II), went into the warm house and Blue slept in the cold all night keeping watch. The next morning (May 6th)there were three small kittens. One all white, one orange and me (ANNIE).
I grew up, being moved from place to place. My mom decided to keep us under a trailer across the street. Mom left us each day to eat.She always keep us warm and safe. The food stopped and Mom had to leave often to check the dish. The dish was gone. Mom packed us up and moved us back to our house on the deck. The dish returned, we were home.
We played with Blue in the back yard, we had so much fun. Then we got bigger and Mom moved us again.We now lived under the house by the deck. It was hot on the deck, so nice and cool under the house.
We were told to stay away from strangers. Only go out with Mom. We became afraid of everything that moved. Blue would stay with us all day and night, he loved to play with us. In the morning we would go out to eat,lay in the sun, and play.
One day something different was there, a big silver wire trap with toys hanging in it and food. We played and ate and didn't notice the string going thru the window of the house. We were all having fun inside the cage when the door shut. A strange man came. Then we were riding in a big box Humans call, a van. Blue and Mommy were not with us in the van. We were so scared.
We were taken to this big place. We were all washed and dried with a big noisy thing, that blew warm air on us. We all were sprayed with stinky stuff, given shot and forced to drink uckyyyyy worm medicine. We were placed in a glass room together. My white brother was now a very handsome Siamese with blue eyes .
My brother sat in the hooded litter pan all day and all night. Humans would come and go. I would sit on this big cat post and watch every human that came by. I loved to talk to them, they are odd. One human would come in with us several times a day and hold us talk to us. I liked that. My sister (orange kitty) would follow what I would do. She liked the attention too. Purrrrrrr.
The nice human lady came in one day. She placed us in a big box with a loud metal door. We were taken to the a Human called, Vet. Were were poked, blood was taken and given more uck stuff. We waited for the test results. The human lady took us to a strange place, with soft floor and a couch, a real big post and a big window, but still no Mommy. We were then left alone to explore our space. My brother hid in the new litter box.
All night strange cats would sniff under the closed door. We would try to see them under the door and they hiss at us.
The nice Girl Human would come in and sit with us. She smiled at us gave us uckyyyyy kisses and hugs. She told us we would be OK and she would lay on the floor with us.
The next day the door opened. We could see so many more rooms to explore. We met another human, a Man. The human man picked us up, one by one. He hugged us and kissed us (uck). He said,"Welcome Home".
We played and were put back in our room. We were so tired.
The next day we got to meet some big cats. They didn't want us to eat their food,"Hiss Hiss get away,they said . My Siamese brother hid all day in a great big litter box in the other end of our new home.
We did the same thing for several days and the hissing stopped and we could eat the food. My brother was still in the litter box.
The humans said we could call them Mommy and Daddy. We decided to call them Girl Human and Male Human. They said OK but, we have to name you also.
The humans gave us all names. Pooh for being in the litter box most of his life. /Amber as she is that color all over including her eyes /and me ANNIE well because I so cute, of course.. We now are HOME at Calico Junction Sanctuary and we are all together. Our Mommy(now at Rainbow Bridge) and Blue came to the Junction later an joined us. But we never could be with them again as somehow Blue contracted Aids and we never did. Mommy Ickie II decided to stay with Blue. So we are all are loved and cared for here at the Junction.
Bio: MEET ALL MY FAMILY BELOW >CLICK ON ONE OF THEIR PICTURES AND SEE THEIR STORIES. GIVE A TREAT TO YOUR FAVORITE ONE.
Yesterday was a day for the Caster community of panic. We all experienced a long evening of "Catster Down". Running to other places to talk with their friends and to see if everyone was having the same problems. Yes, it was discovered we all were getting spinning, spinning, spinning.
Some of us saw it for so long we decided it was a new toy developed just for us. Me, I had to knock it off the computer screen and watch it roll under the couch with all our other hidden treasures.
Hush, don't tell anyone our secret.
We now have that spinning thing hidden away and hope we don't see it for a very long time. "Welcome back Catster" may your fleas be gone once more.
I first thought I had broken Catster because I was chosen for DDP. Then I decided it was because the sun was shining. I really must take a cat nap. I'm so tired from watching that think spin. Hours on end I watched it. Won't you join me on my favorite perch in the warm winter sun for a nice long catnap???
So nice that you guys picked my diary today. What a nice thing to wake up and see such wonderful news.
The kitties here tell me that we are going to do a happy dance in the snow bank, later today. I think I may just pass. I hate cold toes.
My idea of celebrating is laying on the arm of the chair catnapping while my slave, Girl Human does my work. Oh, I work so hard.
So glad I have my slave. Speaking of, "Slave open that can of food I feel like a little snack". We kitties know how all this work is makes us hungry.
Well time for a nap soon it's almost noon. Have a great day Catsters I feel another cat nap coming on. YAaaaaawwwwnnnnn.
Well maybe later I will play with a big pile fuzzy from the dryer since this is the first day of Lent. Happy Ash Wednesday guys.
Today was the day. It's not due to bad cold wind, snow or ice that we are still not attending the funeral. This date was given as the final day for cats to play. No more long time friends to meet with any time day or night. we were all told we were going to have to say goodby furrever.
I had forgotten that this was the final hours we were to have together. We were to loose very long time friendships that we all enjoyed here for so many years.
My fruuuend Rex reminded me that due to some vet tech giving Catster a shot in the butt we are still here together.
It's a very quite these days. Many kitties have decided to play elsewhere. We are hoping they will visit again and start playing as they once did. Now the question is, will the kitties come out from under the beds and from behind the curtains and trust again. We can only hope. May this never happen again. We can forgive once. So come guys, lets grab our favorite toys from under the couch and play once more.
