Arrival Story: My husband (then boyfriend) and I were taking a walk. We heard loud dog barking/growling noises and squealing kitty noises which really concerned us. We followed the noise....and were totally stunned by what we found. We will spare the details as it gruesome and graphic....we just knew we had to get the cat away from that situation. When the man with the dog saw us, he pulled the dog away and left....and the cat ran off. Luckily we found him under a car....catching him was a whole different issue. This cat was hurt and scared beyond belief. We finally got him and took him to the vet. After he was released from the vet, he went to live with my boyfriend (now husband) across the street. He remained under the bed for weeks and would not let anyone near him. If you approached him or touched him, he would attack you and fight for his life. Not a good situation. We were not sure we could handle him, but we had to try...he deserved a second chance at a good life. We knew if we didn't keep him, no one would....so we did. To this day, he is still defensive, somewhat aggressive and has trust issues. Who could blame him? However, it does make it difficult in certain situations. We have had him for 17 years and he still attacks when he becomes scared. It is simply a fear based reaction. He does try so hard to be gentle and loving...and he is, in his own special way. We love him and accept him for who he is.....We simply allow him to be. At first we wanted to name he Cuddles....but given his personality we changed his name to CK....the short version of Cuddles Kitty. He is a great addition to our family and has a special place in our hearts. He is our special needs kitty who really learned to be a part of our family with the help and support of his bridge kitty sister, Jazzi Sunshine Angel.
Well, we did not get to update the diary on the 1st as Catster was not cooperating again....Thank you sweet friends for the Rosies of Remembrance.....so grateful for all of you.....So many new Angels have joined me as the Rainbow Bridge lately....sending lots of healing love to their families.

What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace."
We love you all and thank you from the very depths of our hearts for the gifts of frienship...Our hearts are forever connected by paws.
We believe a mothers' love is unconditional. It is rare and uniquely special. Many women in the world don't have human children, yet give of themselves and their hearts as a mother would to a human child....we furbabies are our mommy's "children" and because of that, we are lucky enough to know unconditional love.
My mommy always wanted human children and yet, her life is so blessed with all of us. she gives of herself to others as a mommy would give to her children. She is a "mother" in every sense of the word....all of you are. I could never have been loved more.....
We are so grateful our grandma is home and with us.....as she is our rock and inspiraiton. We are blessed. Please take time to tell all the moms in the world, thank you...
" Makeit a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it."
Thank you Mom....thank you Grandma....thank you everyone for your love.
Happy Mothers Day. May it be filled with Sunshine and love
