Arrival Story: Calie is one of 5 kittens from a feral cat colony. A friend feeds a colony of feral cats in her neighborhood and we trapped them, had them "fixed" and released them. One of them was Ivey a preganant kitty. About 4 weeks after she had her kittens we found them and I took them and her home with me. The kittens were sickley and had matted eyes runny nose ear mites fleas...and they were very scared. After lots of TLC they all became very loving kitties. Calie and her brother Wilie (he got adopted)were the largest of the litter the other three were very tiny. After two weeks when all kittens had been put on solid food, Moma ivey was "fixed" and returned to the colony. I began placing ads and asking everyone I knew liked cats, to take a kitten. Calie is one of the five that found her forever home with us. Well of the five four of the babies found their forever home with my husband and I and our two cats booboo and little boy it has been an adjustment but lots of fun. Before booboo and little boy skids had been our only cat for 19 1/2 years before she went to the bridge with CRF
Bio: Calie has adjusted to the loss of her sister Alley they were litter mates and spent much of their time napping,eating, and playing together. Calie was really outgoing until Alley was gone then she had some pretty low times where she would go into hiding for hours. There were times when she get a little depressed and chooses not to spend time with us. Now she joins us most all the times rarely hides from us and sleeps with us a lot of times. She has alwasy been the first one to the food bowl. We are so furry glad we were able to give all of them a home.
this is what I say to mom and dad most nights errr or mornings. See mom does not sleep much so she goes to bed around 2 a.m. and most nights she plays with us before we go to sleep but I am still wired for play when she turns in to sleep.
So I grab the foil ball and run upstairs to the bed room and up onto the bed and say mew mew meeow (sounds like a kitten) and someone (mom mostly) says in an inside voice "calcal night night" but no it 's playtime. so last night mom took the foil ball when I laid it on her bed and she put it under her cover so I went there to look for it she hid it good so I came back out and she rubbed my head till her hand went limp MOL she fell asleep so I nipped her wrist and the petting was restarted, then her hand went limp and I nipped again to restart her and when it went limp again I nipped it and shook it real good kinda like we do when we go for the kill on a bug or lizard MOL and restarted her once again to pet me. Then she very slowing and quietly let the foil ball fall to the floor but I HEARD it and went after it! Mom doesn't sleep much did I say that already??
WEll almost all of our nails are all trimmed. Mom and dad do not do this often really they should do it more and we would prolly be so used to it, it would be no big deal. Mom did mine and moe's front feet a few nights ago cause we are so easy and tonight mom and dad did my back feet and all four feet on little boy then they did mo's back feet too, it was all no real big deal mom held us and loved us wile she held our feets out to dad to trim. Then there was tiny...........he purred while mom held him and dad did his front feet except for "eye" nail the little one on the side.
So mom let him go and in few minutes she tried again and tiny squirmed out of her arms, they loved on him and when she just light touched his feet he grabbed her arm and started to chew her fingers like a bone, so dad had to tap him on the nose and forehead, then tiny looked at dad to say "she started it" they gave up on him for he night will try for his back feet and that long side nail another day.
Miss talking to all of yall, hope you are all doing well.
Grandma was here the other night visiting mom and while i like Grandma I don't normally come and hang out unless it is just her and I like when she sits with us when mom is away. Ok so the other night grandma was here and she brought her friend I chatted an her but she was a stranger I had only met 3 or 4 times so I hide in the window seal. The thing is it was kinda chilly in the house and grandma said so and suggested mom turn on the little heater in our room it looks like a little fireplace and grandma likes to see it burn. Mom said "it's not really that cold" well grandma turned it on any way and they all sat down at the computer which was on the table in our kitty room ( this room used to be the formal living room and now it is a room with wicker furniture and kitty trees)
Then mom said to grandma "look" and there I was sittin pretty in front of the pretty little fireplace heater with my eyes closed as I faced the heat. When mom said "calcal" I said "meeew" (kinda a short high pitched kitten like mew) Yea grandma gets it I needed heat and she knew it I stayed in the room with them (and the heater) the rest of the evening.
