Gotcha Day Anniversary, Oct. 31, 2015 on Halloween!

[ Leave A Comment ]

Thank you my friends for your gifts; and Lynzee and Dana (with her kitties Edgar, Silvio, Oliver, Zack, Abigail, Patches and more), I love the photos you made. I tried to post them but am unable to again! I'll keep trying.

I had 18 Gotcha Day anniversaries on earth with Dad, and this is my first Gotcha anniversary while at the Rainbow Bridge. Being with my dad since 1996 had been wonderful for me!

Dad loved my kitten eyes so he was very happy he could get me to keep, when I was 5 1/2 months old.

Thanks again for visiting my page with your really nice gifts!

Birthday in Heaven, Thank You to All of You, May 12, 2015

I almost made it to my 19th birthday today but had to go to Heaven a few weeks ago. I'm the kitten again that you can see on my page. Dad wishes to hold me again when I was that tiny. He remembers when I was small when he was driving and I was in his lap. He was so happy the day that I became his!

And I thank you all for the birthday presents you've given me. I can even open them up here at the Rainbow Bridge!

Thanks for the photos from Lynzee and from Dana Kasian. We tried to put them on my page but tonight it's not letting us. But we will keep trying on different days.

Love and thanks to all of you!

I am so grateful for all your very sweet messages. They help a great deal when your heart is breaking.

Easter movies are on TV now and they remind me that Tabatha will also be Risen.

Her elderly body has changed from feeling pain to becoming new and young again, a small dimension away, but in memory always.

Love, Mike xo

My Dad has written this for me:

SAD UPDATE *** Tabatha passed away early in the morning of Sat. Apr. 4, 2015 at the age of 18. (In 5 more weeks, on May 12, 2015 she would have turned 19). I was worried about her in September 2014, when she got really thin and was wobbly and dehydrated, but I took her to the Vet and they gave her nutrition through an IV and she's been pretty good up until Mon. Mar. 30/15 when she would not eat or drink anymore and was lying down most of the time. When I went to pet her she'd meow quietly to me like usual but had no wish to get up, though occasionally she'd go lie down somewhere else but was very wobbly. (Last September, because I fed all cats canned 'Metabollic' diet food, since July, from the Vet so that Ginger could lose weight (and the Vet said all cats could eat it), it appears that it did not give Tabatha enough nutrition. That caused me to take her to the Vet in Sept. to check her, and that IV helped). On Wed., Apr. 1/15, I took Tabatha for Sub-cu fluids because she was dehydrated again. On Thurs. Apr. 2/15 I got an appetite stimulant from the Vet, and the Vet said I should 'think' about what's best for Tabatha because she was so thin. I told the Vet that Tabatha's stool was black lately and the Vet said she likely had bleeding in the bowels. I told the Vet Tech. (on the phone earlier in the day) that the appetite stimulant, a few yr. ago, had made Serena wobbly and she said she never heard of that. The dose was 1/4 pill every 3 days. Later that night of Apr. 2/15, when I gave the 1/4 pill to Tabatha, it made her breathe very rapidly. Seems to me that pill affects cats, despite what the Vet's office thinks. And it did not help Tabatha to have an appetite for eating. From then on, surely because of the 1/4 pill, she stayed lying down only. On Fri. Apr. 3/15, I took Tabatha to sleep on my bed and I slept beside her. She passed away peacefully early in the morning of Sat. Apr. 4/15 beside me. Those 18 years together surely went by too fast; it can't go so fast, but it truly does go by too fast. I often told her she had the prettiest face I had ever seen, and that she was a pretty girl and a good girl and that I will love her forever and forever; and I will forever.

Tabatha and all of us send our Love.
She will be thought of very often for always and forever.



Gotcha Day Anniversary October 31, 2014

I made it to my 18th Gotcha Day anniversary; being with my dad since 1996 has been wonderful for me!

Thank you my friends for your gifts; and Lynzee, I love the photo you made; I will try to post that soon!

I'm thinner than I used to be; still a big kitty though, but thinness comes with being an old lady kitty; my back legs have had wobbly days too. Dad just keeps giving me lots of attention and I like that!

Thanks again for visiting my page with your really nice gifts!

Many Birthdays, 18 of Them!

I turned 18 years old today, May 12, 2014! I was born on Mother’s Day, May 12, 1996 – a good day for my mother kitty! And this year, Mother’s Day was just yesterday.

Just a few days ago I was playing with a string dangled in front of me. Things are still of interest to me regarding playtime. I’m thinner now and more fragile but I move pretty good when it’s eating time; I'm always ready in the kitchen when it's time to eat!

About a month ago I went to get groomed, shampooed and brushed out. My sister Elsa is more used to me nowadays than she used to be; she must be learning who is the wise one in the house!

For awhile Dad tried a different canned cat food for us, but it wasn’t good for me so he went back to just feeding Fancy Feast; we don’t mind! We still eat dry food too.

I found new sleeping places that I never regularly liked to nap in; such as upstairs sometimes. When the sun comes in the window up there, it’s nice to be warm and sleep in the sun.

To my Catster friends, thanks for your gifts and best wishes for my birthday today. You are making my Birthday #18 a great celebration.

Thank you Lynzee, Manytoes (who has a birthday today too!), Tundra & Rory for making me a Birthday photo!

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!

Shampoo and Brushing

April 1st 2013 2:56 pm

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!

GOTCHA DAY, Oct. 31, 1996!

Thank you my friends for your congratulations on the anniversary of my Gotcha Day today!

I love the pictures made for me by Lynzee and also by We Bees Siamese for this special day. They are PURRFECT because both of them show me at the Gotcha Day age!

Since it’s Hallowe’en right now, I hope you’re all safe and scaring away all those spirits!

My Dad got me Hallowe’en night in 1996 after all the children around town had gone out trick or treating. I was his treat; it was no trick – and he was glad he got me!

The newest thing for us is those flea drops. In August, Elsa and Ginger had their Vet checkups and the Vet found fleas! We’ve never had those things in the house since about 1994! So all 4 of us have gotten those flea drops put on the back of our necks in Aug., Sept. and Oct. The Vet said three treatments is enough.

We hope so!

Happy ‘BOO!’ Night to all.

Love Tabatha xo
