Orange Tabby

Eating. He loves to eat. He can hear a can open and will magically appear at your feet, meowing.

He hates getting medicine.

Favorite Toy:
He loves small balls, catnip toys, things on strings.

Favorite Nap Spot:
He likes the windowsill and the back of the loveseat.

Favorite Food:
He loves my husband's fried catfish. He likes most meat and fish.

He can leap straight up like a Ninja when he's playing ro startled.


Arrival Story:
Ruffy showed up one day sleeping in the back of a neighbor's car. They had no window in the back, and the then skinny cat climbed in and slept there. He was very friendly, and would run up to people for attention as well as food. We were able to find a lovely rescue to take him, as we had our hands full with 5 cats, but it turned out he was FIV+. We continued to show him for adoption, but no one was interested, sadly for them, but it was ok, he joined our cat family. He is playful, loving, smart and his favorite thing is eating.

Ruffy is an 'old soul' and with his funny, slightly tufted ears, and large eyes we believe he's got a bit of an 'otherworldly' feline spirit to him. Ruffy loves to eat, to sleep on the back of the sofa, to laze in the sun and to relax. His bouts of playfulness are funny because he's such a big kitten at these times. Ruffy is such a gentle soul. As time goes by, we come to realize that he's such a wonderful and kind cat. He seems the most tolerant of other cats, and has a mellow nature. He's truly a wise old soul. A big solid cat with a soft little meow. Proudly one of Samoa's Dreamboats in 2012-Dreamboat #59. In mid September of 2014, Ruffy began to lose a great deal of weight and become thin. Despite intensive vet care and many medications, Ruffy let us know on Oct 7, 2014 that he was ready to go. When we took him to the vet that last time, the vet told us Ruffy's always compromised immune system had shut down and he could no longer fight. Ruffy was ready-he could no longer eat, his favorite thing and he was very tired. He let us know before he leapt up, up, and out that he loved us and would return-soon, and that he loved his friends and would continue to look out for them. Ruffy has been a part of many lives with us-and we hope he'll return again this one.

The Baboo Kitty Has Spoken

Happy New Year!

Oh what a year
Oh what a time
At times full of misery
At times just sublime
And though I see tears,
Weep no more for me
I leapt up up and out
I'm joyous and free

Let go of the old, let go of the blue
Welcome new furrs with new attitude
Don't you see this, it was meant to be
I'm dancing the light in complete clarity

My life was blessed, my life was so fine
I had so much love that I claim as mine
I won't say good bye-it's never that
For I told you once I was a magickal cat

Let go of the old, welcome the new
Hold in your arms the one meant just for you
You have the grace and magick to be
Dancing the light in complete clarity

And so you knew heartbreak,
So you knew pain-what was the sorrow
For I still remain. I watch over you
With a rumbling purr
For I've always told you-
Trust that Miracles Occur

Let go of the old, for here comes the new
I touch your face with my whisker
And admire the view
Of all love and light
And exciting new furs,
Coming in from the cold
With wide eyes and purrs

Let go of the old, leap into new
Let joy surround you and all that you do
Sense my fey magick, my immortal form
For the Cat Goddess danced
The day you were born.

....for all those who sit with with me in the just beyond....
we wish our folks, and our furr family a happy and joyous new year.
Do you grieve us, my folk friends. We are just fine, filled with humor,
merriment and love. Our journey with you will echo in our hearts forever-it is not over-we are attached with a firm filament to your souls. Love us, and honor us, with all you do for our kind.

love and light and many rumbling purrs,
Orange Ruffy, Warrior Poet


A week I've been gone from my family-but paying visits

Well furs,
I'm still resting up-but I've been paying visits. Daddy has seen me once, Mommy and I 'talk'. I revealed to mommy one of our lives together-and I had decided that life, for a very good reason, to come back as a human purrson. I was a tall, bushy haired and strong red headed warrior. I kept mommy safe because this is what I do-keep my folks happy and amused and safe. Mommy said it was as though if she could have imagined me as a purrson that is what I would have looked like!

I am concerned about Smokieboo. Daddy and Mommy have been bringing him into the bedroom at night to sleep. They close the bedroom door at night because otherwise they would be woken by cats roughousing and playing at 3am-and demanding food because the younger ones like to tear around in the morning. So Smokieboo has been taken into the bedroom to sleep with them. Miracle doesn't mind much-he doesn't bother her.

They think Smokieboo is missing me, but they have found him a few times sitting in the bathroom on the closed toilet seat, looking up at the bathroom window. Mommy says thats where I come in-but Mommy, I can come in any way-I just like to make for that window because now I can.

I've told Smokieboo I'm fine, but I know he still misses me. He has many other cats to hang with and play with, and I was happy to see that yesterday the kittens had curled up close to him. It's nice to see them getting bigger and strong-next week they get their shots and then can go to events. Mommy wanted to do it this week, but the vet who does the shots is away for a week.

Mommy and Daddy have been sad thinking of me, and yesterday my ashes came in-mommy got the call, so they will go and pick them up. It makes them sad that I'm not in my physical body but I have tried to let them know it was my time-I am not sad about it-there wasn't a way to keep going and I shall return. Mommy knows, and Daddy knows-it's just the missing of so many years together.

Mommy wanted everyone to know this:

Hi all,
We miss Ruffy so much. But we wanted to thank everone for being so kind. Ruffy belongs to all of you. When he started out writing, he did it to let others know they are thought of and cared about. When a cat leaves for rainbow bridge, he always sensed it-and now that he is the cat-well, he will always belong to all.

love and light-
Ruffy and of course, Mom


I leapt up, up and out!

Dear Furs and Folks,

I've left my body and am fine. I had a peaceful, and uneventful journey. I got to spend alot of time with mommy and some time with daddy-it's never enough time-before I left last night.

My good vet-and he was very good-and kind-told Mommy that he believed I was older than thought-my nails were those of a 'very old cat'.

His diagnosis was full blown feline aids syndrome. He said my immune system, even with all they were doing did not respond and it should have-they had me on medicines they give cats with cancer and I simply could not fight any longer.

I was tired.

Since Daddy had to come from work to be with me, they put mommy and me in another room. There was a nice heat lamp set up and a warm blanket, as well as my own. I didn't try to get away, once I saw mommy was there with me, her face close to mine I reached up and held her hand as we talked-and we did. She knew this was my decision-she and daddy had given me all the natural life I could have and it was a very good life. Not bad for a cat who came in from the cold.

Daddy came eventually. He held me and loved me. I did my best to let him know that I was fine, and not afraid. I was so tired and I told him we'd see each other again. Daddy cried and held me and I let him cry. He has always known me as his special cat.

When the time came, I was very cooperative. I didn't feel pain, I really did leap up and out and mommy said afterward she felt so light-because I was with her and let her know that I was fine.

I'm a very special cat, a Fetch, a Spirit who is a Guiding spirit, and so...but I won't say more here. Many of us are-this is the nature of cats.

I know my Clowder will be fine, and I'll look in on them. As for me, well, I'm going to firstly have a discomfort free nap, and then I'm going to go on about the cat business of being me-I'm always me. I'll probably soak up some sun and meet with those who have gone before me.

And I'll be around-never fear. I retain the title of Catster's Warrior Poet.

I will be watching over those who need it-never fear-and I love you all...

love and light,
Irish Orange Ruffy
Warrior Poet of Catster
