   Leave a treat for Tabatha

Nicknames:
Tabatha Friendly, Tabatha Sleepy

Gotcha Date:
October 31st 1996

Birthday:
May 12th 1996

Arrival Story:
This year, in a few days, Mothers Day is May 9, 2010. Tabatha was born on Mothers Day of May 12, 1996. She became mine on Halloween on October 31, 1996! She was born to a grey long haired cat owned by my friend. I helped her advertise that she was giving away these kittens. I even advertised in the newspaper where I lived, and where I lived was one hour away from my friend's house. Someone phoned me and asked if they could have this particular kitten. We were sure it was a male and this woman wanted a male. When the time came for me to deliver the kitten to this woman, I picked up the kitten at my friend's house, and drove the one hour to my city to deliver the kitten . During the one hour drive I began to feel so close to the kitten asleep in my lap. So close to the kitty was I that I cried before taking the kitty from my car to the woman's house who was going to take the kitty. I really didn't want to give it away then, and considered keeping it, but the woman had asked for this kitten. I had pictures of this kitten right from the day it was born up until the time I had to give her away. I believe it was July 1996 that the woman got the kitty. She is the first kitty I have owned where I was there a few hours after she was born! At this time though I did not own Tabatha, I was giving her to this woman. Every time I passed this woman's house, I always wondered how the kitty was. That kitten felt so special to me for some reason that I could not explain. She is a grey and orange tortoise-shell kitty, and the orange on her always made me think she could be re-incarnated from my first cat, the orange one I had - Georgina (aka Morris). On Halloween night in 1996 I went out during the evening at the time kids are trick or treating. I decided to drop in to this woman's house and finally see the kitty again. When I got there she said this to me. I was was going to call you. This is not a male cat, it is female. I wanted a male. Hold on and I will get her for you. That is what she said. She gave me Tabatha, and I kept her, half thinking I kind of wanted her anyway, all this time. Besides, this woman's home conditions were really no place for a cat. There was no back door window, the house was a shambles inside and out. I gave this kitty the name of Tabatha and she was now mine on October 31, 1996! I have pet phrases with her. Tabatha sleepy? Tabatha play? Tabatha Clean? Her want more food! Tabatha, her so friendly. This is because she gets up on her hind legs so I will rub her head like a friendly greeting. And regarding the food, she's my biggest cat, despite being quite thin when I got her. She loves food! She loves when I scratch her head and immediately begins to purr. When I ask if she wants cat food she meows. And loves to be brushed. When I think of the woman who gave her up I cannot understand why she would but it was I who was lucky. And I tell Tabatha this for assurance. Nobody love her but WE love her. Tabatha is a pretty girl. She is a good girl too. She endures her bath. I talk to her constantly while bathing her and she calms down and is a good girl. Tabatha, like all my kitties, was sent to me as it was meant to be.

Bio:
Felix in 1990 was named after the Felix the Cat cartoon; Samantha my first white long hair cat in 1993 (who will soon be on Catster) was named because my friend (she had Tabatha's mother) had a dog named Samantha and I liked the name for a cat; (and I liked fair haired Samantha on Bewitched), then because of Bewitched, I kept using names from that TV show, and I decided my black kitten in 1994 would be Serena (on TV Serena has black hair); and this kitty in 1996 would be named Tabatha.

Gotcha Day, 17 Years Ago - October 31 on Hallowe'en!

I can't believe I haven't written much lately now that my Gotcha Day Anniversary is here and I'm checking out what I've written!

Thanks for the Candy Corn, Gunnarr T, Miss Muppet Forever Loved, and Peekaboo! It's a good thing I had my bad teeth pulled out a couple of years ago so that I can eat this candy!

Thanks for the Pumpkin, Smiley Cassanova! It's just in time for me to make the jack-o-lantern for tonight!

Thanks for the mail, Jezebel and Travis!

My dad came home from a vacation a few days ago, and he found me upstairs where the bedrooms are which is a place, at my age, I don't go up to very often. But I just wanted to be sure he was staying home and checking out that his suitcases were going to stay here, so that he doesn't go away on a vacation away from us again!

Being 17 years old now I've become a bit thinner and more fragile; since I'm a pretty big kitty there is more of me to hold up for a cat at my age. But I go down to the basement to the litter box just fine; I'm just taking things easy.

My fur coat needs to be taken care of more often now too. I loved to be brushed and it makes me PURR! And I've always loved to lie down near the warm furnace vents in the kitchen and I still do as it feels so good there!

Thanks to all of you again!! I'll go and see what I can do with the jack-o-lantern. Maybe later I can make a pumpkin pie too!

Love Tabatha

Birthday on Mother's Day, and So Was the Day I Was Born!

Wow today I turned 17 years old; May 12, 2013! And on Mother's Day too.

The day I was born was Mother's Day too, May 12, 1996. What a sweet day to be born. We all often think of my Mommy kitty, a grey long hair pretty cat.

I must have absorbed long life genes from living with Felix and Serena. She lived as long as a couple of weeks short of turning 17. Felix lived until age 18 3/4.

My dad is thinking of getting me a very strong smelling catnip toy. I love catnip toys and real catnip too that sometimes grows in the back yard!

Today he took pictures and home movies of us and gave us a can of Friskies food which is larger than the Fancy Feast cans; yummy more food than usual! Of course, later on we'll all want to eat again!

Thank you all for your nice gifties and every word you've sent to me!

Love Tabatha xo

 

Shampoo and Brushing

April 1st 2013 2:56 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ]

Today I went to the Vet to be shampooed and brushed. I had a few mats in my fur plus my fur is always fairly oily. It was cheaper to go to the Vet than to the groomer, like we did last time.

And I'm more fragile and my dad worried whether a groomer might not realize this too well. So he spoke to the Vet and the Vet said her own technicians would be really careful; but the Vet said groomers would likely take good care of me too. But the groomers is always noisy with dryers going on other animals, so it was more quiet to do it at the Vet.

I meowed all the way to the Vet, and on the way home. When I got home I growled at Ginger, Tyson and Elsa and even at my Dad! But the lady at the Vet said I was really good with my shampoo and hardly meowed at all. But she said I would be feeling more soreness than usual, tonight, because of the brushing.

So I guess I'm growling at everyone because I don't want anyone to bother me anymore today! But my Dad fed all of us as soon as I got home, and I liked that; it was delicious!

Love Tabatha xo
