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.

Girl Human is improving more each week but still can't drive and master the few steps we have here. She did get to go visit Mickie, Mica, and Bennie last weekend and it was so nice to see them. They treated her as a stranger but to be expected after 2 months. She played laser tag and gave them some treats and did manage to grab a few hugs and forehead kisses before returning to the main house.No working for Girl Human so she will just have to stay home with us a spoil us some more.
Note from Girl Human:
Annie has been having a bad week. Had to go to the Dr. and get an antibiotic shot. Suspect an abscessed tooth was going on. The Dr. cked the teeth but saw nothing.Her face was swollen under the eye and she was just in poor misery just as I have been with a bad tooth. Within 48 hours she was recovering and still having some sneezing and a little tearing coming from her left eye.
Everyone else is doing well and the cold and snow have been keeping everyone in their houses the last month. Can't believe day light savings time will be here next week already. It seems just like 10 minutes ago we had turned the clocks back. Spring is around the corner and I'm sure so is more cold and snow.
Well she has wheels but not the kind she wanted. On the 28th of Dec. she was rushing Sophia to the kitchen from the good rug in the living room as she was about to leave a hairball mess on the forbidden zone. Girl Human can't yell to her to leave the zone as Sophia is deaf.
While walking fast Girl Human fell with poor Sophia still in her hands. All she was worried about was hurting her. Somewhere in fall Sophia was free and clear and Girl Human broke her leg.
So thus she has a new set of wheels. She is going to be doing a new adventure next week, a walker. She is looking forward to the advancement but we are not.
Now we will have to watch all our toes and tail for many more weeks to come.
It has been nice having her home with us 24/7 and we hope it will be a long time before she leaves us. She has not been able to see the guys in the outside places since it happened and Male Human is in total charge of them. She already knows a house cleaning will be in order everywhere. She also will have to de-Christmas as all the decos are still in place. Well there is always Christmas in July.
We hope everyone had a good holiday and that you all receive some cool cat things from your Valentine.
I have not been here for several months and was amazed that I could see the photos and read diaries. I tried to make a comment of a diary and I found the flaw. Can't comment. Was told that Catster needed a flea bath. Why are they telling me that?? I knew a year ago they needed a deep cleansing. Well any why, know no one can answer me but just wanted to wish everyone a fantastic holiday and a enriched 2015.
I know I'm asking a lot but, hope that the problems that has afflicted our nation be solved in a manner with dignity and prayers together. To many seem to have strayed from family values and living an honest life. It's such a shame that a few have to cause so much division and undo all that has been accomplished over the years I have been on this earth.
Lets all work together for a better year. From All of us at Calico Junction Happy New Year.
