Arrival Story: I went to Rainbow Bridge on June 25, 2010 to be with my good friend Winston. I lived under the swim spa of the home of Calico Junction. I like it there because it is nice and warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Sometimes in the summer the stupid Humans want to have hot water in the spa and then it is too hot to sleep there.< So my name is Spa>
When we moved into the place that is now Calico Junction, it already had a swim spa. It is a 20 X 15 greenhouse and had a built in kitty. Living in the foundation, he would come and go, having a very busy life.
We would only get a quick glance of him as he came and went. In the winter we would see his foot prints in the snow, leading under the spa.
For several years he would run and never stay around when Humans were present. He was fat and healthy looking , always clean.
When we started the Junction another guy started showing up. He would sit on the back porch and look through the door. We were feeding our first adopted kitties, some food was always left for the phantom guest. Both started showing up for regular feedings but never staying long.
The second guy, we called Winston. He was in awful shape and did not trust anything or anyone. Five years went past before Spa would allow a Human to touch him, but only on his own terms. Winston seemed to loose every fight he got in. He missing parts of ears, damaged eyes, holes in his face and body. We give him medication, wormed him and give him flea drops trying to make his life better. He belongs to someone who does not care. He has had a hard life. Spa has had his days also. We found Spa near death one morning. We put medicine in his food, prayed for him and shed a few tears for him. It did help, he reappeared all better and hungry. He then started staying around most of the day. The Humans have used traps, took a chance at picking them up, tried to pet them, but they would loose their trust for months. They always return in time.
We would like to help them more, but we have no more rooms for them in our buildings They are filled. We do our best. We know they do belong to someone. We wish that owners would care for their devoted charges. Spa and Winston could both be a fine pet if given the chance. If they were fixed they could be handsome, well Spa could, but Winston is beyond handsome. We feel the name Winston is the most regal thing that has ever happened to him in his lifetime. Being named after Winston Churchill because of his big puffy cheeks. He looked like he should have a large cigar( not lite) hanging out of his mouth. We do have pictures of Winston but we are afraid to post them. He looks so bad. Spa has come around and runs to us now and even rubs the legs of Humans. He asks to have a scratch or pet every once in a while.
We are Kitty Angels ready for Christmas. We heard that our Junction Sister needs our help so we are flying over Calico Junction to protect her and help make her better. Come on all Angel Kitties, Join us and give Cella the help she needs to get better.
I can't believe it. I woke up this morning and we have so much snow.
Yes it snowed all day yesterday. Then all night we had more. Guess what, it is still snowing. It is suppose to snow all day. Don't worry, I am snug in my little house laying on my heat pad. I don't want to venture out and get my cute little feet wet and cold.
Hay kitties, I have trained my Humans. They know how to feed me in my houses enclosed porch. I don't have to leave my comfy home.
I am one smart kitty, I am. I know how to train a Humans, I do.
Maybe I will reward them after all this blows over. I just may let them touch me, not to much, just a quick touch.
