Arrival Story: When we moved to California our house felt so empty. Both of us had lost our long loved cats the previous winter and without any feline companions, the house was empty. Before we even finished buying the furniture, we went to a rescue no kill shelter to find a cat or two. Mommy wanted to get two cats, daddy was sold on only one. When we got there, mommy couldn't even get through the front door without the cats piling onto her and expressing love. However, inside the big main room there was a beautiful Siamese with bright blue eyes that made eye contact with mommy and started talking to her and following her around. After picking her up, it was decided. Mommy had been chosen, Simone would be joining the family! Luckily daddy was being suckered into adoption by River who had fallen asleep on his lap after playing with mommy for quite a while. They both came home with us that day!
Bio: Simone was an abused breeder who was abandoned when she became too old to produce Kittens with digestion problems and bad teeth, all of which were fixed when she was rescued and adopted by us. She is now the princess of this house and despite her constant nagging Siamese voice, we wouldn't have it any other way. She and River are a very bonded pair now despite having grown up without one another.

Well, that's it, mommy has gone done and upset me something fierce I tell you! A few days ago mommy and daddy noticed I was limping. Still eating fine, not hiding, still behaving like my chatty little self, but definitely limping. Did she ask me how I got this limp? NO! Did she ask me if I wanted to to go the vet? NO! They just TOOK me! I tell you kitties, some days it doesn't pay to have a human.
So after a vet trip, turns out, I'm just fine. I just sprained my leg. The nice vet lady did give me some trippy drugs to help me heal faster, that was kind of nice. When we got home I laid with my belly in the sun and watched the carpet like it was moving. Trippy! I felt pretty great. Well, just like I would have told them if they bothered to ask me, I slept for a few days (even more than normal, and that's a whole lot of sleeping) and have emerged at the other end of the trippy drugs and sleepy naps, 100% fine and cranky that I didn't get enough laps during the recovery period. PET ME MOMMY!!! Next time maybe mommy will ask me first before dragging me off to the vets like that, it's not like I don't have a very complete vocabulary that I don't know how to use or anything...
Well, it's time kitties. Me and mommy have been avoiding writing about the end of Catster because, well, we didn't want to think about it. We didn't want to consider the fact that our safe place was being taken away, that we were going to lose all of you. However, us ignoring it won't make it go away. Catster is going to close and we should make the most of the time we have left. So, I'm going to make the ABSOLUTE most of it!
Everyone knows the handsome Monster right? Well, he and I were Valentine's last year and evidently, I'm such a fantastic Valentine, he couldn't get enough. He calls me his 'lovely largeness' hehehe *sigh* I do have a whole lot of va-voom going on if you know what I mean! He asked me to be his Valentine again this year and I, of course, said yes! This means for the last year on Catster I, once again, have a Valentine before River! Poor guy, he better get on it. Ladies, if you don't have anyone yet, he's super shy and super available still!
As for me and the handsome Monster? I'm purring for joy over here, what a handsome stud! hehehe!
