Firstly, I would like to start out this diary with a wish for Boxie Brown's mom-his human one-to know that we're all purring for her here, and hope she's feeling well.
As everyone who is anyone knows, CeeCee lost her battle with Fattly Liver Disease last Sunday-not yesterday-last week.
Mommy and Daddy had gone on 'vacation' so we weren't told...but we don't need to be. When a cat who has lived with us sheds their mortality and leaps up the Rainbow, well, we know.
I didn't like that Mommy and Daddy left-but Auntie Rachel came to take care of us. As a result...well, my collar didn't come off except for meals, and mommy thinks already my eye is looking better.
However, we are now despreate for more food-Auntie Rachel fed us, sure, but we let mom and dad know how dastardly they were to leave us here and I'm just now working on mom for my third feedling. So far she hasn't given in...but trust me...she will.
But something else came back from vacation with mom and dad. It's small, and it smells...like ANOTHER FUR!
I know it's in that bedroom in a cage. I saw it briefly last night. I would really prefer there not be another here...but it's small.
In brief-when Mommy and Daddy were away, they went to see a very large tree called 'Angel Oak'. (the tree is very big and very old, but as we weren't there, we couldn't play on it). Anyway, when they were there, they saw a family looking under a car. A little boy said 'Hey, it just ate a piece of my cracker!'
Then the family drove away.
There was a small black and white kitten that was very very skinny. Mommy and Daddy keep cat food in the car for emergencies for kitties outside. Mommy crcaked the can. It took her awhile but she managed to coax the small guy fairly close, grabbed him, wrapped him in a blanket and got him into the car. They also looked for the mommy cat and the other kitten the ladies at the shop there said were 'hanging around the back'. They looked for about 20 minutes, but couldn't find them. So mommy figured he would starve there...and she remembered what I beleive 'trust that miracles occur'.
Cee Cee Ryder Knowles sent Mommy and Daddy CK Angel Ryder Knowles to Mommy and Daddy to help-so of course he had to come here, right? (sigh).
To give them their due, they did try to get him into a small local animal rescue, but was told they were 'filled to the brim'. The rescue did test him, give him his first shot, treat him with flea/tick stuff you put on the neck cause he had both fleas and ticks...and gave mommy and daddy medicine for him cause he has a little cold.
He's in a small cage in the bedroom. I heard Natalie hissing and growling this morning, she hates him, nothing unusual there.
I go back for a recheck tonight. Maybe I'll finally get this blasted cone off? I hope so.
With much love to all....and so glad mommy and daddy are home...
From Ruffy's Mom:
When we were on vacation, our beloved CeeCee, who was hospitalized, passed to Rainbow Bridge. We had debated not going on vacation as she was hospitalized and very ill, but our vet advised us that there was nothing to be gained by remaining in NY as CeeCee was in ICU and we weren't able to visit her til she stablized.
Early Sunday when she was checked at about 3 in the morning, she was 'rallying' and doing slightly better. However, when at 5:30 our tech went to check on her, she had slipped away.
We were extremely devestated, and felt so angry and upset at ourselves even. We should have been there. I asked CeeCee to give me a sign she was ok.
On the Friday past, we went to visit a very large oak tree that is so ancient that it's limbs rest on the ground, in a welcoming pose to all.
In the parking lot of the place is where we met, and rescued CK Angel Ryder Knowles. The CK stands for Carolina Kitty. The Angel-well, he was found at Angel Oak, and we beleive our Angel CeeCee sent him to us.
He is currently caged in our bedroom. Natalie is registering her disappaproval, and is growling and hissing up a storm. He has a slight cold and we're treating him so he's as far away from her as we can make it. The vet that saw him in SC said that sadly, cats being dumped at tourtist spots is not uncommon. We'd like to ask the assistance of any Catster Humans in the Charleston area with finding, catching and rescuing CK's mom and sib. We searched long and hard, but we didn't see them.
We will see if the rest of the Clowder outside in the front room will aceept him or if he'll need to go for adoption. But we hope we'll be able to work it out...we really feel, in the words of Ruffy 'Trust that Miracles Occur'.
I beleive that CeeCee sent us to this little emmisary from heaven to us...for he's saved us as much as we him. A profile will follow as soon as I can post some pictures of him.
