Arrival Story: My family was split up when my owner went in a nursing home. She never had any of us fixed and there were up to 40 family members. Everyone was put outside to care for themselves.
My Mom (Sally) had 4 kittens. Two were adopted and Mom and one kitten were captured by a neighbor and taken to the SPCA. I was smart and got away from the trap. Alone and lucky enough to sit at the end of the driveway to Calico Junction and when the male human drove up I gave "the tear at your heart strings look" and won his heart, then and there. I was in.
I became a member of Calico Junction. I went to the vet and I was in, not the outdoor section, but the indoor (I was good- with that look). I passed the tests at the Vet that I needed to enter. Growing so fast/so big.
He was 19 1/2 lbs and dropped to 15 lbs in 2 weeks. I took him to the vet $$$$$ he was diabetic. With such a good subject the shots were a breeze. He is the most easy going cat I ever saw.
One thing he does not like are scissors, nothing silver. Stay away. He has his up and down days but he does so well.

Yesterday my insulin level were why off. I was being stubborn and not wanting to eat. Since I'm a light 22 lbs, a day off my feed is just fine for me. But Girl Human gets upset. She can't give me my insulin.
Today when she came on Catster she saw the reason. Today is my 7th birthday. I have got so have room for all my birthday goodies.
Girl Human just can't believe that little gray ball of fluff arrived at the Junction so long ago. It only seems like 3 years ago, she says..
Without the injections, I get very grumpy and pick on everyone else. Just what I did, all day yesterday. Today I will be an Angel. I want my special party day to be fun and everyone to like me.
We were all so very happy to see Girl Human return from the CCCL Convention. She had a lot of fun with the Flatcats and their Humans.
I was very happy to see her. I was having a big problem with my fang. My gum was all swollen and I need to visit my Vet ASP. Girl Human got me in this morning on standby. I went in my stroller and spent the morning watching all the kitties and doggies come and go.
Finally it was my turn and when the Dr. looked at my tooth and touched it, it all fell out. The whole tooth, right in his fingers. There was no evidence of foul play he said. He gave me a shot of antibiotic and Girl Human returned and took me home.
All I wanted was food. So when I got it I ate and ate. I seeked out a comfy place for a nice long nap. I climbed up on the big bed and fell fast asleep. I woke up in time for supper.
Male Human was upset that it happened on his watch and it was not taken care of until Girl Human returned. I'm OK, really.
So all in all it was a very busy morning for me. I'm sure glad Girl Human is back.
